MANILA – James Reid and Nadine Lustre were a couple for more than three years, which is why their fans are having a hard time accepting their decision to part ways.
It is also understandable why a sighting of the two together post-split would spark some glimmer of hope among their supporters.
This is the case after Reid and Lustre were spotted partying at a bar in Makati on Saturday night.
Fans of the two were quick to share and repost photos and videos of the former couple having a good time with their friends.
As seen in the posts, Reid and Lustre seem to be getting along well despite their breakup.
Reid and Lustre, who would have celebrated their fourth anniversary on February 11, had said they decided to part ways to “focus on ourselves not only for our careers but more for our personal growth.”
The two had their showbiz breakthrough in 2014 via the big-screen romcom “Diary ng Panget,” launching one of the biggest love teams among their contemporaries.
Both Viva artists at the time, they successfully transitioned to television as contract stars of ABS-CBN, where they starred in back-to-back drama series, “On the Wings of Love” in 2015 and “Till I Met You” in 2016.
When they started filming the latter, their onscreen loveteam had already grown into a real-life romance. That romantic milestone unfolded in February 2016, when Reid declared his love for Lustre at the close of their joint concert at the Araneta Coliseum.
