JC de Vera clarified that no break-up has transpired between him and LJ Reyes contrary to the rumors circulating. JC was quick to stress that he was not officially in a relationship with LJ since he decided to stop pursuing the actress because he needs to prioritize his career at the moment.
“Actually we were working on things talaga at ilang beses na rin kaming lumalabas pero siyempre merong mga bagay na kailangan i-prioritize talaga kaya di siya natuloy. Napunta kami sa stage na pinag-uusapan na namin on how to fix things, kung paano ‘yung mga adjustments, kung paano ‘yung mga gagawin namin together pero ‘yun nga unfortunately hindi kami biniyayaan ng… ayoko ng sabihin na walang time eh kasi nag put naman ako ng effort sa oras din pag wala akong trabaho pero ‘yun nga like I said pareho kaming may kanya-kanyang priorities talaga and I think hindi lang talaga siya nag-match at ako lang din ‘yung nag decide to stop.”
He added, “Walang confirmation about the relationship, ‘yung part na ‘yun gusto ko siyang i-keep ng private kasi si LJ napakabait naman na tao, ayoko ng madagdagan kung ano ‘yung issue sa kanya.”
JC said that he was not able to see LJ again since they decided to put a halt on their blossoming romance. But JC hopes that they would still remain friends if ever their paths would cross. “Since noong nag-decide ako na mag stop hindi na kami nakipagkita. ‘Yun nga since tumanggap lalo ako ng maraming trabaho so I think ‘yun talaga ‘yung path na pupuntahan ko is to focus muna on work and to enjoy kung ano man ‘yung meron ako sa career ko ngayon habang tumatagal pa so ‘yun. Sana maging okay pa just in case na magkita kami sana maging okay.”
