Kapamilya stars Gerald Anderson and Maja Salvador have decided to “take a break” from their relationship, the 26-year-old actor confirmed on Tuesday.

Anderson was asked about the rumored breakup during a press conference held Tuesday for his upcoming primetime series “Nathaniel,” which will premiere on Monday.

Opo, we are taking a break muna sa relationship namin,” Anderson said, “but okay kami, we’re on very good terms and nag-uusap kami. We’re doing this together and we’re taking this step by step together.”

He added: “I don’t want to go into details… Hayaan niyo po muna kaming mag-recover muna, dahil hindi po biro po ‘yung pinagdaanan namin, so just please, sana po respect our privacy and all I ask is please respect her as much as you can.”

Anderson also thanked their fans, family and friends who “were always there” for him and Salvador.

“I just want to say thank you sa fans namin, who are always there, sa friends and family namin… All we ask right now is just please respect our privacy, please respect us. ‘Yun lang po sasabihin ko about that,” he said.
