Enchong Dee confirms breakup with Samantha Lewis
MANILA, Philippines – Enchong Dee has confirmed that he and model Samantha Lewis have broken up.
In an interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda on Tuesday, May 24, Enchong said: "Yeah, We're just friends now."
According to Enchong, he texted Sam even before he went on air to say that he would probably be asked about it. Sam told him that it was okay.
"I texted Sam, 'Sam this is going to happen, this is the topic, this is the headline.' And then she said, 'Okay lang, walang problema (No problem),'" he explained.
"I mean, ang dami na naming pinagdaanan (we've been through a lot) together and this is just one of those. But, yeah, we're just friends now," he said.
Boy Abunda said that he himself was not really comfortable about asking such questions. Enchong assured the host that he has so much respect for him, but he was just not sure how to respond without offending anyone.
When asked how he coped after the breakup, Enchong said, "I love her. Bibihira ako makahanap ng ganoong klaseng babae. (It is rare for me to find a girl like her)."
"But I think there’s just a certain point, 'di ba (isn't it), where you just [have] to say, 'Stop.'"
For now, Enchong said that he is focused on promoting his new album and doing his movie and soap.
The two were also seen in last year's Star Magic Ball. – Rappler.com
