Actor JC de Vera clarified that he and actress LJ Reyes were never officially together but confirmed that they have stopped seeing each other.
This after the actress announced her breakup with de Vera in an interview although she did not give details as to when or why it happened.
At a press conference for the concert “Dreamboys” with Daniel Matsunaga and Matteo Guidicelli at the Music Museum, De Vera said he believes it was not just the right time for the relationship.
In fact, De Vera said the reason he moved to ABS-CBN back in 2013 was to further his career.
“’Yun talaga ang main purpose ko – to work, to earn, magbaon ng madaming projects sa future. I have to set yung mga priorities ko straight. So hindi ko naman pwedeng sisihin ang schedule ko kung bakit nangyayari ang bagay-bagay. Ako kasi ang may gusto nito. Siguro hindi lang talaga time,” de Vera said.
“Napunta kami sa stage na pinag-uusapan na namin on how to fix things, kung paano ‘yung adjustments, kung paano ‘yung gagawin namin together,” he admitted.
“Ayaw kong sabihin na walang time kasi nag-put naman ako ng effort sa oras na ‘yon kapag wala akong trabaho. Pero ‘yun nga like I said pareho kaming may kanya-kanyang priorities. I think hindi lang talaga siya nag-match. At ako ang nag-decide to stop,” he said.
Pressed if he was the one who broke up with Reyes, De Vera said: “Walang confirmation about the relationship. ‘Yung part na ‘yon gusto ko siyang i-keep ng private kasi si LJ napakabait naman na tao. Ayaw kong madagdagan ‘yung kahit ano pang isyu tungkol sa kanya.”
Despite what happened, De Vera said he is still hoping that he and Reyes could be friends.
“Since nag-decide ako to stop, hindi na ulit kami nakapagkita at since tumanggap ako ng madaming trabaho. I think ‘yun muna ang path na pupuntahan ko is to focus muna on work and to enjoy kung ano man ang mayroon ako sa career ko ngayon habang tumatagal pa. Sana maging okay pa just in case na magkita kami,” he said.
De Vera admitted dating Reyes in January. At the time, the “Halik sa Hangin” star said they had only been going out for two months. (MNS)
