Inamin ng Italian-Canadian model-actor na si Nico Locco na niloko niya ang dating kasintahang si Arianne Bautista.
“Yes, I did,” mabilis na sagot ni Nico nang tanungin kung nag-cheat nga ba siya sa dating Kapuso actress-TV host.
“To be honest, and for the record, I did cheat on her.
“I can’t lie, right? I cheated on her, I made a mistake, I got uncomfortable in the relationship.”
Ibig sabihin, kahit may relasyon sila ni Arianne ay may iba pa siyang girlfriend?
“Tama, tama po… well, I didn’t have another girlfriend, pero may interactions with other women,” sabi ni Nico.
“Hindi naman fling, hindi naman fling…”
“Yeah, ayun, ayan.”
Sino yung other woman?
Nakilala raw niya ang naturang babae sa isang event.
Natuklasan ni Arianne ang pangangaliwa ni Nico nang buksan ng aktres ang laptop ng model-actor at nakita ang pag-uusap nila ng ibang babae.
“Messages, evidence, from the girl, unfortunately,” sabi ni Nico.
At nabisto nga siya ni Arianne.
“But at the end of the day naman, I truly believe that if you’re cheating, you’re gonna be caught eventually. It’s just a matter of time.”
Bakit siya nag-cheat?
“Grabe! I ask myself that question every day now that I’ve lost her.
“Kasi I really did love her, like, to be honest with you guys.”
Pero bakit nga siya nangaliwa?
“I dunno why, but I thought, for some reason, my relationship with her and what I was doing on the side wouldn’t cross over, they wouldn’t affect each other.
“Which was totally bobo of me because siyempre it was gonna affect her, and did affect her, really hurt her badly.
"And I’m still mad at myself for that."
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Nico sa grand presscon ng MMFF 2019 entry na Culion sa Novotel Hotel ballroom, Cubao, Quezon City, Huwebes ng gabi, December 5.
NO COMMUNICATION WITH ARIANNE
Nailathala rito sa PEP.ph noong June 26, 2019 ang galit na galit na pagra-rant ni Arianne laban kay Nico sa Facebook account ng dalaga.
Sampung buwan tumagal ang relasyon nina Nico at Arianne bago ito natapos halos limang buwan na ang nakalilipas.
Wala raw silang anumang komunikasyon ni Arianne matapos ang hiwalayan nila.
“Especially after nag-post siya, walang communication,” banggit ni Nico.
Sa pagkakaalam niya, galit pa ba si Arianne sa kanya?
“I mean, I haven’t talked to her personally, but I talked to people that know her.
"Kasi siyempre, I’m concerned also that siguro she’s depressed or sad about what I did, pero okay na siya.
“Okay na siya daw, she moved on, which I’m happy to hear 'coz I was sad a lot because of how I hurt her.”
Hindi raw niya nakarelasyon ang babaeng dahilan ng hiwalayan nila ni Arianne, one-night stand lang daw iyon pero naulit ng ilang beses.
Ilang beses siyang nag-cheat kay Arianne?
“Hindi ko alam, I won’t say, I won’t say,” iwas ni Nico.
Hindi rin daw alam ng naturang babae na naka-one night stand niyang may girlfriend siya that time.
Umamin si Nico sa kanyang pangangaliwa kahit ang payo sa kanya ng marami ay manahimik na lang.
“But I wanted to say something because what I did was truly wrong and I regret what I did.
“So siyempre, maybe there’s a lesson to be learned for me and for other people,” aniya.
LESSONS THAT HE LEARNED
Ano ang natutunan ni Nico?
“If you’re going to accept a relationship, if you’re going to go into a relationship, you can’t give 98 percent, you can't give 99.9 percent, you have to give 100 percent.
“Because it just takes that little slip, that little temptation to ruin everything.”
May gagawin ba siya para magkaayos at maging sila muli ni Arianne?
“Wala akong plano, e, ‘coz I feel like I hurt her so much, that I don’t want to disturb her or anything.
“So, wala akong plano to get back with her.”
Hahayaan na niya si Arianne?
“I’m letting her go, oo. I think it’s better for her naman to move on, for me to move on.
“Like I said, I learned a lesson and sana… well, I’m confident naman, the next relationship I take on, I’ll know what to do.”
Alam ni Nico dahil sa nangyari, ang tingin sa kanya ngayon ng marami ay “fuccboi” at sinungaling.
“But unfortunately, people don’t know who I really am deep down inside.”
Sino ba si Nico “deep down inside”?
“I think, in life, everybody is confused somewhat about who they are or what they wanna do, ako din, e!
“Pero deep down, I’m really a kind person, a caring person that wants to be loved and wants to give love.
“I think na si Arianne was my first love sa buhay ko, and I didn’t take it seriously enough as I should have, and I really regret that.
“Parang, if I can ever get to that point and love a woman again, siyempre I would be more serious about it.”
Kung makakaharap niya nang personal si Arianne, ano ang sasabihin ni Nico sa dalaga?
“Arianne, I’m so sorry for what I did to you.
“I’m so sorry for cheating on you.
“I regret everything that I did.
"I know that I can’t take it back, I know that I can’t take back what I did.
“Pero I truly want you to be happy in life kahit it won’t be with me.
“I hope that you find somebody that really does care for you and you get the love that you deserve.”
