MANILA, Philippines – Kim Chiu admitted that it took her a year and a half to recover from her breakup with ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson.
In an interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda Monday, March 21, Kim said she knew she got over the breakup with the help of the people around her.

"Wala naman may kasalanan. Wala talaga. (No one is at fault.) It’s just the circumstances..." Kim said.
"Tampo, hindi galit. Ang lalim naman ng galit." (Tampo but not angry. Getting angry would be too much.)
When asked if she and Maja ever talked about what happened, Kim said no, saying she is not a confrontational person.
Kim, who is celebrating 10 years in the industry is preparing for her concert entitled Chinita Princess: The Funtasy Concert on April 9 at the Kia Theater.
Looking back since winning Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition, Kim said she's grateful for all that's happening to her.
"Kasi pangarap ko talagang mapanood sa TV e. And hanggang ngayon, isang dekada na napapanood ko pa rin ang sarili ko sa TV, masaya na ako doon," she said.
(It was always my dream to be on TV. And up to now, a decade later, I still see myself on TV and I'm very happy with that.) – Rappler.com
