Actor Joem Bascon has confirmed that he and his girlfriend of more than eight years, vlogger Crisha Uy, have parted ways.
The 33-year-old actor announced the breakup on Tuesday during an acoustic live session for his upcoming film Write About Love, with co-star Yeng Constantino.
Speaking with members of the press, he said: “Hanggang doon na lang siya. Kapag pinilit pa, on my side siguro mas magiging magulo. So I guess hanggang doon ko lang talaga kaya.”
According to Joem, though it was he who initiated the breakup, the decision to end their relationship was mutual.
“It’s a mutual thing na nag-usap na kami pero kailangan ko aminin sa lahat din para ‘di na rin maging tanong, it came from me talaga. Hanggang doon na lang po. Mayroon lang po siguro problema ako with myself, personal na hinahanap ko sa sarili ko. I guess I really had to decide kaysa masaktan ko pa lalo ang tao,” he said.
“Walang third party, all on me,” he added.
Despite their failed relationship, Joem hopes that he and Crisha could still be friends.
“I’m hoping na maging friends kasi maayos naman ‘yung pag-uusap. Pero wala naman kasing hiwalayan na hindi masakit. So masakit pa rin for both of us. Siguro lang ngayon, nakakausap niyo ako ng maayos kasi I’m busy with work. Sobrang busy ko na marami akong kasamang tao. Talagang dina-drown ko 'yung sarili ko with trabaho and friends para lang hindi ko maiisip masyado ‘yung nangyari,” said Joem.
“At least ngayon ito ‘yung nangyari kasi kung pinatagal ko or natuloy ‘yung mga plano with everything siguro mas mahihirapan kami at lalo pang masakit,” he added.
