After being part of one of the most talked about breakups in showbiz two years ago, Joshua Garcia said that he has already moved on and changed in a lot of ways like how he views relationships. During a virtual blogger’s conference for his upcoming series Viral Scandal, without mentioning any names, the 24-year-old kapamilya actor said that when it comes to his next relationship, he will not care anymore about the past of the person he is dating. Joshua’s last known relationship in showbiz was with actress Julia Barretto whom he dated from 2017 to 2019.

“Para sa akin hindi importante yun. Siyempre mas importante kung ano yung nangyayari ngayon. Past na yun eh. I’m sure yung babae din mismo kinalimutan na rin mismo yung past na yun. Na-experience ko kasi before nag-care ako masyado sa past niya. Parang naka-apekto siya at the same time sa relationship namin and hindi siya maganda. So natuto lang ako. Kaya ngayon sabi ko hindi na ako papa-apekto sa past. Past na talaga yun. Dapat nakakalimutan na yun. So yun lang yung masasabi ko,” he shared.

Already used to being part of intrigues online after his breakup, Joshua revealed how he handles all the online attention.

“Yung mga negative issues, ang dami ko ng experience (laughs) oh my God. Well yung mga hindi dapat pansinin, hinandle ko by not handling at all. Wala eh, sayang yung energy ko kung i-handle ko siya di ba? Pero siyempre yung magagandang viral na nangyari sa akin, trini-treasure ko yun. Kasi part ng journey ko yun as an artist and an actor. Choose your battles talaga kasi sayang yung energy talaga eh. Pagka binigyan mo ng importansya yung mga ganun na alam mo namang hindi makakatulong sa ‘yo. Depende, depende talaga sa sitwasyon,” he explained.

Joshua said he understands why celebrities are the subject of blind items and all kinds of gossip.

 “Kasama yun sa trabaho namin. Hindi ko masisisi yung nagawan ako ng blind item. Kasi yung reaction ko before nung nagkaroon na ako noon I don’t know kasi nakuwento lang yun sa akin. Sabi ko, ‘Yaan mo na.’ parang ganun lang yung sinabi ko eh. Kasi the more na pagtuunan mo siya ng pansin, the more na mapapansin din siya ng mga tao. And kung nabasa mo yung blind item at hindi ka sang-ayon, huwag mo na lang pagtuunan ng pansin yun. O baka mali naman yung sinabi ng blind item di ba?” he added. 

Watch Joshua Garcia and Charlie Dizon in “Viral Scandal on the Kapamilya Channel, TV5, A2Z, Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and TFC IPTV starting November 15.
