Katrina Halili opened up about the reason behind her decision to break up with singer Kris Lawrence, whom she parted ways back in January.

The 28-year-old actress explained that she felt that neither of them have matured throughout their 5-year relationship.

Siguro kailangan lang po naming mag-mature na dalawa. Ako, may kailangan din akong tapusin pa. Siya naman, kailangan din niyang mag-ipon pa,” she said.

Parang hindi kami naggu-grow na dalawa kapag magkasama. Basta, mas okay kami na separate ways,” she added.

According to Halili, the two remain in good terms. She said that Lawrence has been a dutiful father and is shouldering some of their daughter’s educational expenses.

Naghahati kami sa mga binabayaran kay Katie (Katrence), like may tutor siya, may school pa,” Halili said.

Asked about whether there are any lingering feelings for Lawrence and if there’s a chance of the two getting back together, Halili said: “Love as a friend.”

She also added that she is not interested in entertaining any suitors at the moment. Instead, she is choosing to focus on her career and Katrence, saying “ayoko rin naman, hindi naman ako naghahanap.” (MNS)
