Last year, during the press conference for the movie The Love Affair, Bea admitted that she and Zanjoe went through a rough patch in their relationship, but managed to iron it out. She also made a clarification, during a press conference for one of her endorsements.

"Lahat naman tayo dumadaan sa mga ganun. Hindi naman perpekto...siguro hindi ninyo mahal ang isa’t isa kung hindi kayo nase-shake sa mga pinagdadaanan. That’s not a relationship. A relationship is full of misunderstandings and love. So mahal ninyo ang isa’t isa kung may pakialam pa kayo sa isa’t isa," Bea said.

(All of us go through that. We're not perfect.... I guess you do not love each other if you're not shaken by challenges. That's not a relationship. A relationship is full misunderstandings and love. So you love one another if you care for each other.)

Zanjoe on the other hand said in a separate interview that it was not unusual for couples like them to have problems in a relationship. 

"Hindi naman ito 'yung unang beses na meron kaming pinagdaanan ni Bea. Siyempre 'yung pagmamahal, hangga't hindi nawawala iyon, hangga't nandoon iyon, kahit ano mang problema ang dumating sa amin, hindi kami matitibag kung mahal namin pa ang isa't isa," he said.

(This is not the first time Bea and I have gone through some tough times in our relationship. Of course when it comes to love, for as long as love is there, whatever problem approaches us, our relationship will not be destroyed if we love each other.)

Zanjoe and Bea were together for more than 4 years. – Rappler.com
