MANILA – Coleen Garcia said there was no awkwardness when she and Nikki Gil had an encounter during the Ad Summit Pilipinas 2014 in Subic last May.
Garcia is the current object of affection of Billy Crawford, who was Gil’s former boyfriend for several years.
In an interview with entertainment site Pep, Garcia shared that they “were all polite to each other” when they crossed paths at the event.
"Nagkita kami dun, actually all of us. Siyempre, we were polite naman. We were all so polite to each other. There was no bad vibes naman. Past is past," she said.
Asked if they had the chance to talk privately, Garcia said: "No. But before rin naman, hindi naman kami masyadong nag-uusap. We were never close.”
"Billy didn't talk to any of my exes. You don't really ask for permission from the other person. It's finished na," she added.
Although they have yet to confirm if they are already a couple, it’s very apparent that Garcia is now more open in talking about Crawford.
Asked why this is now the case, Garcia said: “It's because there's more certainty. It's not naman because we were tago, but there's more certainty now. 'Yung time na sumabog ang issue, we weren't really solid.”
According to Garcia, she considers Crawford as someone “worth fighting for.”
"It's hard to find someone who would fight for you the same way that you would fight for him," she said.
