Jake Cuenca on Melissa Ricks: 'She's the best girlfriend I've ever had'

060111-jake_main.jpgNot long after Melissa Ricks’s revelation about their relationship, Jake Cuenca finally admits that he and Melissa did break up two months ago but like his ex-girlfriend, he refused to cite the reasons why. “Wala naman na ako sigurong ibang masasabi. Sinabi naman na niya na yun na yun e. Nag-break kami. It’s been two months pero ayoko na rin magdetalye kasi everything that she gave to me I am thankful for that. She is the best girlfriend I’ve ever had. To me, she will always be Melissa, she’ll always be in the pedestal.”

Jake affirms what Melissa previously said in an interview that there was no third-party involved that caused the split. “There was never anyone else. Nung kaming dalawa, kaming lang dalawa talaga.”
 According to him, it wasn’t a bad break up and they respect each other’s reasons when they both decided to part ways. Though the relationship is over, he can never speak ill of Melissa. “I can never say anything bad about Melissa kasi she was the most supportive girlfriend.” He adds, “I am healing, I am trying to move on but then again, there are a lot of things that I have to learn, there’s a lot of things that I have to fix with myself.”

While they are both on the healing process, Jake hopes that they will be friends again someday. “We started as friends then it turned out to be something else, something special. Ako, I’m really wishing and praying we could be friends again pero siyempre siguro kailangan magbigay ng konting space, yun lang naman yung natural gawin ng kaka-break lang.”
When asked about the possibility of being together again, Jake states, “I am lucky at the end of the day kung mababalik ang pagiging magkaibigan namin. Siyempre mahirap magsalita ng tapos pero mahirap din pag-usapan sa ngayon.

The actor said that Melissa can still count on him and he will always support her in every project or problem that will come her way. At the end of the interview, he gave a short message for Melissa. “For Mel, lagi naman mayroong pagmamahal diyan, bilang kaibigan, bilang girlfriend…lahat. Just stay the same, kung paano ka, kung ano ang totoong ikaw, keep it.”
