MANILA – “Sobrang saya namin ni DJ ngayon.”
This was Kathryn Bernardo’s statement as she belied rumors suggesting that she and boyfriend Daniel Padilla have already called it quits.
During a Facebook Live broadcast for one of her endorsements on Sunday, Bernardo was prodded to address the issue.
“Sasagutin ko na ito kasi ang dami talagang tweets. Saan ba galing 'yung news na 'yun? Hindi talaga. Sobrang saya namin ni DJ ngayon,” she said.
“Hindi porke’t hindi kami nagpo-post na magkasama kami, hindi ibig sabihin hindi kami okay. Privacy na lang namin 'yung iba. Wala kaming problema. Super okay kami,” she added.
Reiterating she doesn’t know where the rumors are coming from, Bernardo said: “Just to be clear, we are okay. Nothing to worry about. Wala talaga ito, I swear to God.”
During the same broadcast, Bernardo also talked about their decision not to work together this year.
“I think this is the most challenging year for me. At the end of this year, gusto ko ma-achieve 'yung growth ko siguro individually… Kasi for the longest time, kami [ni DJ] 'yung magkasama, and this year 'yung pinakamalaking challenge sa akin and sa kanya kasi magkahiwalay muna kami, not in real life but as a love team,” she said.
Bernardo said their time apart at work would make them look forward to their reunion project with eagerness.
“'Yan ang gusto namin ma-achieve para by the time na magka-reunion project kami, we are both ready individually. And, ewan ko, feeling ko mas buo kami,” she said.
For now, she intends to give her 100% when she finally begins filming her upcoming movie with Alden Richards.
“I'm very happy kasi I said yes. Tinanggap ko itong project na ito with open arms. Gagawin ko siya 100% na kaya ko ibigay. Napa-proud ako sa sarili ko na nagawa ko 'yun. Malayo 'yun sa comfort zone ko. So sabi ko I want to take this challenge. I have to do this for my growth,” she said.
