Phenomenal love team James Reid and Nadine Lustre admitted that they were together at Rockwell during Valentine's Day.
“We were just shopping for computer games. But to be honest, meron kaming dinner plans but it got cancelled because the restaurant was full,” James said during the finale press conference of their top-rating soap On The Wings of Love on Tuesday, February 16.
A few days
ago, photos of James and Nadine—collectively known as JaDine—shopping made the rounds
However, just as fans gushed about seeing their idols out together, there were those who noticed how Nadine carried shopping bags alone as James walked in front of her. Several netizens took this against the Fil-Australian heartthrob, saying that he wasn’t being a gentleman.
Nadine immediately defended James from the bashers who quickly judged her love team partner.
“'Yung mga gamit po na ganun, I really don’t mind kung ako yung magbibitbit. It’s okay,” she started.
"Kasi, number one, it’s really not heavy. Number two, kaya ko naman po. Even 'pag may schedule, minsan wala akong PA [personal assistant], I carry my stuff, I drive, so parang it’s really nothing to me,” she explained.
But did James ever offer to carry her things?
“He did, but then, 'Ako na hahawak, it’s okay.' Sanay po kasi ako ng ganun. Even with my bag, parang hindi ko po talaga pinapabitbit sa iba,” said Nadine.
James, for his part, just shrugged off the issue and said, “She wanted all the bags, so I’m not going to fight her over that.”
With their soap ending in a few days, the two are currently preparing for their upcoming major concert on Saturday, February 20, at the Araneta Coliseum.
