MANILA – Amidst speculations of relationship problems, Kapamilya actor JM de Guzman clarified that his relationship with co-star Jessy Mendiola was going well.
Rumors started when the couple’s followers in social media noticed that the two have rarely shared photos together or made mentions regarding the other.
Adding more to the speculations, Jessy’s supporters began to ask if her recent emotional posts on Instagram were addressed to JM.
“Hindi [para sa akin ‘yung mga quotes]… mahilig lang mag-quote [si Jessy] ng mga songs talaga. Ever since, kahit nililigawan ko pa lang siya, ‘yung mga quotes niya sa kanta,” the actor explained in a Philippine Entertainment Portal report.
(No. Jessy’s quotes are not for me… Jessy’s just fond of quoting songs. Ever since, even when I was still courting her, she already quoted songs.)
The actor, however, admitted that his relationship with Jessy was not perfect. They also had misunderstandings sometimes.
“Meron din naman [kaming mga problema]… ‘Yun siyempre, she expects a lot from me. Minsan, hindi ko naibibigay. Mahal ko siya. Minsan, nararamdaman mong kailangan bang ganyan, ganito ba dapat. Pero kung mahal mo… [mas mabuti nang gawin ang ilang bagay] kesa naman mawala sa‘yo ulit,” he said.
(We also have problems… Of course, she expects a lot from me. Sometimes, I’m unable to meet her expectations. I love her. Sometimes, you wonder if some things are necessary. But if you love her… it’s better to do these things than to lose her again.)
JM believed that his relationship with Jessy will remain strong. In fact, the actress has been his inspiration in his newest teleserye “All of Me” in ABS-CBN.
“Si Jessy… ‘Yung love ko sa kanya ay isa mga basehan ko ng love din eh. She inspires me before nong nag-start ulit ako. Siya ‘yung nagpu-push sa akin na kaya pa ‘yan,” he said.
(Jessy… My love for her is one of my bases in love. She inspires me before when I started again. She was the one pushing me that I still can.)
