Nadine Lustre said a good support system helped her cope with the death of her younger brother Isaiah Lustre last October 2017.
Talking to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Nadine said Kiana Valenciano and Lauren Reid, two of her closest friends, stayed by her side during that low point in her life.
“That was last year. I don’t wanna go into detail, everyone knows about it.
"It was a really bad time for me.
“I was really happy because they never stopped being supportive of me.
"They are always there to make me happy and to keep me sane.”
Kiana is the only daughter of Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano, while Lauren is the half-sister of Nadine's boyfriend, James Reid.
Nadine went on to say she feels blessed to have girl friends who push her to move forward.
“Kahit sobrang lungkot ko na, we'd always go out and have fun.
"I forget about it because of them.”
What is her state of mind now?
Nadine answered, “I’m very happy now. I’m in a good place right now.”
