MANILA (Mabuhay) — After several failed relationships, actress Janice de Belen is no longer looking for love.
De Belen is the former wife of actor John Estrada, who is now married to beauty queen Priscilla Meirelles. Before that, she also had a son with Aga Muhlach.
De Belen admitted that she doesn’t want to get hurt again.
“In fact, I don’t ask for that kasi takot nga ako sa problema. I used to want to take risk. I used to walk the dangerous side. But now, I can’t do it, takot na takot ako. Mahirap masaktan, ayaw ko na,” de Belen said, adding that she doesn’t even go out on dates.
“Hindi kasi pwede ‘yung love lang at hindi ka masasaktan. It’s part of the package. Kapag masyadong marami ng beses na nagfe-fail, aba eh teka muna,” she continued. “Grabe ako magmahal, long-term kasi lahat.”
The actress admitted that as she gets older, she no longer has the same capacity for pain.
“It’s as simple as I got my last tattoo compared to the first tattoo I got. Hindi ko na kaya,” de Belen said.
De Belen is currently part of ABS-CBN’s upcoming series “Be My Lady” with Estrada’s wife, Meirelles. But despite all that happened in the past, she said she and her ex-husband are now okay for the sake of their children.
“We are civil. Medyo weird din ng konti kapag naging friends kami, let’s be honest,” she said. (MNS)
