MANILA – James Reid finally revealed the reason behind his break-up with ex-girlfriend Ericka Villongco.
In an interview during Nadine Lustre’s 21st birthday party, Reid said that the “bad break-up” is the “better way for everyone.”
“I wanted take my showbiz career seriously and I found it too hard at the same time –handling both a relationship and work –and I had such a big opportunity. I didn’t want to waste it. She [Villongco] understood this,” he said.
Reid and Villongco called it “quits” last March before the release of the actor’s movie “Diary ng Panget.”
He reiterated that Lustre had nothing to do with it.
Last Thurday, Villongco said that Reid has been “loyal, faithful, [and] very loving” throughout their three-year relationship.
In a separate interview, Lustre said that she does not want to comment on what happened between the two.
When asked about her opinion on Villongco’s statement that she will be supporting her and Reid should they pursue a real relationship in the future, Lustre said that she is happy.
“I’m happy. Even though their relationship did not end well, she still shows her support to me and James,” said Lustre.
