MANILA – “We are separated but we are never apart.”

These were the words of Vice Ganda as he opened up about his failed relationship with his former boyfriend, whom he still refused to identify.

In an interview with “The Buzz” host Kris Aquino on Sunday, Vice Ganda related how he and his boyfriend, who is reportedly a basketball player, first met.

“Nag-meet kami, common friends. Nanood ako ng game. Magaling naman talaga, sobrang galing. Pero kaibi-kaibigan lang. Tapos nagpunta sila sa ‘Showtime,’ nanood sila, chikahan. Natuwa siya sa akin, nagandahan siya sa akin. Hindi niya napigilan ang lahat. Marupok siya, mapusok ako. Go lang ng go, fight lang ng fight,” he said.

Saying their separation was mutual, Vice Ganda said: “I believe that the only way to keep him is to let him go. Nag-peak na kami. Ang ganda ng samahan namin, ang ganda ng pagkakaibigan namin. Feeling ko 'yun na 'yun.”

Following their split, Vice Ganda is hoping his former boyfriend would eventually find someone he can spend the rest of his life with.

“Kasi nga ang hirap maka-move on kung masyado na kaming na-associate sa isa’t isa. Gusto ko siyang magka-girlfriend, gusto ko siyang magkaasawa. Lahat ng chi-chikahin niya, lahat ng kakaibiganin niya ang sasabihin ‘Naku meron ka namang ganyan, kayo naman ni ganyan,’” he said.

Despite this, Vice Ganda said he will forever treat his former boyfriend as his best friend.

“Para na kaming matalik na magkaibigan na. Para sa kanya din, para ma-explore niya ang life niya, para marami siyang magawa. We are separated but we are never apart. Forever ko siyang magiging friend kasi mabuting tao siya,” he said.

Asked if he has any message for his ex, the “it’s Showtime” host said, “I wish him luck. Gusto ko siyang maging masaya habambuhay. Ang dami niyang plano, ang dami niyang gustong puntahan, ang dami niyang gustong kilalanin. Mas magagawa niya yun dahil malayang malaya na siya.”

“Habambuhay ko siya panonooring umaangat at habambuhay akong papalakpak habang umaangat siya. Mabuting tao kasi talaga 'yun,” he said.

Vice Ganda and his former boyfriend have known each other for five years.
