In an interview with PEP during the press conference for the movie Camp Sawi, Tuesday, August 9, Andi noted that it has been two years since they broke up.
“Mga two years na kaming hiwalay, officially. (We've been separated for two years, officially)
“Pero yung hindi officially, hindi ko na nga maalala," Andi said.
(But the one that's not official, I cannot remember anymore.)
When asked if there's no more chance for them, Andi said that at this point in her life, no.
"Kaya nga ako naging okay, well, natuto na akong tanggapin na baka kahit siya na ang greatest love ko, hindi ibig sabihin na he’s the one I’m meant to be, to spend the rest of my life with.
(That's why I became okay well, because, I've learned to accept that even if he's my greatest love, it does not mean that he's the one I'm meant to be [with], to spend the rest of my life with.)
“Kasi nahirapan, napapagod na rin ako,” Andi said. (Because it's very hard, I'm also tired.)
In the same interview, Andi confirmed that she has been going out with a new guy whose identity she refused to reveal. She said that she is very happy in the relationship.
“Kasi, he noticed me and wanted to be with me for the person that I wanted to become. For the person I am to be.
“Hindi niya… well, tinanggap niya nang buong-buo. (He didn't...well, he accepted it, completely.)
“Wala akong work nun, e. Wala akong ginagawa," Andi shared. (I didn't have work then, I wasn't doing anything.)
Andi also said that the guy she's seeing did not even know she was an actress initially.
When asked if her family likes the guy, Andi said: "Basta si Bret [Jackson] lang ang hindi nila gusto."
Bret Jackson was Andi ex-boyfriend and her co-star in the movie Your Place or Mine.
Hurt by Jake's appearance in AlDub?
Meanwhile in a separate interview with PEP, Andi said that she was surprised that Jake agreed to appear in Eat Bulaga's "Kalyeserye," where he played Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza's classmate and later on the episode God Gave Me You.
“Ang alam ko, ayaw niya.
“Palagi niyang sinasabi na ayaw niya at… medyo nag-uusap pa kami nung panahon ng AlDub.
“At alam niyang masasaktan ako kung ginawa niya yun,” Andi said.
When asked why she would get hurt if Jake ever appeared, Andi said: "Because we were together for… well, hindi ko naman masasabing ako ang tama. Hindi naman natin maku-control ang sakit.
(well, I cannot say I was right. We cannot control the pain.)
“Because for the four years, five years that we were together, all he did was deny me and make sure that he would have nothing to do with me.
“But with the love team na siya lang ang triangle, 'Go, game ako,'" Andi said.
As for Jake's relationship with her daughter Ellie, Andi said she is glad he loves her daughter.
"Si Jake, wala akong masamang masasabi sa kanya pagdating sa anak ko. (When it comes to my daughter, I have nothing to say negative aout Jake.)
“I’m very grateful that he loves Ellie," Andi said. – Rappler.com
