With James Reid leaving his former talent management agency VIVA and pursuing a path of his own, the Kapamilya actor admitted that his decision came with a few challenges.
One of which, he revealed, was the difficulty of working on some projects with his love team partner Nadine Lustre.
While he did not disclose anything specific, Reid admitted that leaving VIVA prevented them from working with each other.
During a special event for outdoor shoe brand Merrell, James Reid, who is among the first Filipino celebrities to hop in on the much-talked-about Gorpcore trend, explained why he and Nadine currently have no projects together.
“In the pipeline, no. Not right now. Since I left VIVA, it’s been [difficult]. We’re waiting for things to settle down so we can work out how we can work together in the future,” he said.
Asked if it’s challenging for him and Nadine Lustre, who is still with VIVA at the moment, he answered: “Currently, yes. I admit it’s challenging. But we’re trying to work things out.”
“It’s very difficult to talk about it right now. But we’re just waiting for everything to be settled until we can work out how we can work together in the future,” he stated.
He added: “But for sure, me and Nadine are good. We’re definitely going to work together in the future.”
Reassuring JaDine fans that they will remain a love team, he said: “There’s no reason for us not to work together.”
It was earlier this year when James Reid decided to leave VIVA after being with the Vic Del Rosario-owned management company for seven years.
Reid currently owns a management company called Reid Entertainment Inc.
He also has a record label of his own called Careless Music Manila.
