MANILA – Actress and model Katrina Halili is single again, having recently parted ways with Filipino-American singer Kris Lawrence.
“We’re not prepared,” Halili said, of her failed relationship with Lawrence; with whom she has a daughter named Katrence.
“I only see him now as a friend,” Halili added, putting to rest questions on whether she and Lawrence would get back together.
While she was reluctant divulge any more details about the break-up, Halili stressed that it was not due to third-party involvement.
She was also quick to point out that both she and Lawrence are diligent with their responsibilities towards Katrence.
“We’re both okay as parents. He still often goes to my house to visit our daughter,” she said.
Halili’s world was rocked by a sex scandal involving Hayden Kho some years ago; an incident which she admits had a significant impact on her self-esteem.
She added, though, that she is now more than ready to re-establish herself in her career, for the sake of her daughter.
“I really took myself for granted at the time. But now I’m definitely more focused. I will be more aggressive in proving my mettle. I’m doing this for my baby after all,” said Katrina.
As for future romantic relationships, she shared: “I don’t know but, at this point, I don’t want to entertain any suitors. I want to stay on track. I don’t want to lose my drive.”
A new movie, “Child House”, is in the pipeline for Katrina, who will play a mother role in the flick, as she did in her previous film, “Niño.”
“I don’t mind playing mother roles. I really want to play different roles to better my abilities as an actress,” Katrina said.
