Almost eight months since they parted ways, newest Kapamilya star James Reid’s ex-girlfriend Ericka Villongco finally spoke up about their break up.
In a taped interview aired on The Buzz on Sunday, Ericka revealed that their used-to-be-private three-year relationship ended on a bad note.
“I really wish that we were friends. I wish we ended civilly para walang awkwardness kasi sayang rin naman ang three years,” she said.
One-half of the singing siblings Krissy & Ericka though refused to the reveal further details about their split.
Meanwhile, the Talk Back and You’re Dead actor confirmed his ex’s revelation saying that, “It’s bad. Breakups naman are always bad. Yeah I intended it for it to be that way because it’s difficult if you stay friends.”
But he was quick to add, “I always intended for us to be friends. Maybe it’s gonna happen one day.”
Even if they ended up as strangers after their relationship, James maintained that he never regretted any part of them being together.
“No because if I hadn’t done it I wouldn’t be where I am now. Being on my own, I was able to grow and that’s what I needed,” he shared.
While he said that he’s willing to work with her in the future, he stressed that maybe it’s best that it happens “not in the near future.”
Now that Ericka’s making a break in acting by being part of the upcoming movie Relaks It’s Just Pag-ibig starring Inigo Pascual, Sofia Andres and Julian Estrada, rumors have it that she’s using their break up for publicity.
James for his part isn’t affected by such rumors, if anything he’s grateful that she has great things to say about him.
In parting though, he ended persistent rumors that it was his phenomenal ka-love team Nadine Lustre as the reason why they parted ways.
