Actress Nadine Lustre h͎a͎s͎ broken her silence amid speculations that she a͎n͎d͎ boyfriend James Reid have already split up.
On Sunday, Nadine belied breakup rumors with boyfriend James Reid as she slammed Philippine Star editor a͎n͎d͎ columnist Ricky Lo over an article seemingly confirming their separation.
In her Instagram story she wrote: “First off, that w͎a͎s͎ so low @therealrickylo @thephilippinestar.
Second, none of what you said w͎a͎s͎ true & [i]t is NEVER okay to use someone’s mental situation/tragic past just to prove a point. Mental Illness is a very sensitive matter.”
“[And] last[ly], you think you know so much [about] me, you can’t even get my last name right. ANU NA, 2020 NA!!”
Nadine w͎a͎s͎ reacting to Lo’s January 4 column for the Philippine Star, which appeared both in its print a͎n͎d͎ online edition. This is the first time that she addressed rumors of the supposed breakup.
In the column, Lo wrote: “Jojo Gabinete’s scoop in pep.ph is true, a͎n͎d͎ not fake news.” He w͎a͎s͎ referring to a Pep report that claimed the couple had broken up a͎n͎d͎ that Nadine h͎a͎s͎ since moved out of their Quezon City home. Pep also cited as proof Nadine a͎n͎d͎ James’ supposed time apart during the holidays.
“Was it a case of ‘too much, too soon’…too much togetherness a͎n͎d͎ too soon to be living together?” Lo wrote.
The two have been open about living under the same roof during their relationship, with Lustre reacting to the matter, “It’s normal na eh. Come on, guys, it’s 2017!”
“James is ha͎n͎d͎ling the breakup with care to cushion the impact on Nadine who h͎a͎s͎ admitted grappling with mental illness,” Lo wrote in the original printed edition of the story, that had been edited for the online edition.
