|Former celebrity couple Cristine Reyes and Derek Ramsay
MANILA – Actor Derek Ramsay denied rumors that he and actress Cristine Reyes have rekindled their romance after they spent time together in Hawaii for a series of shows.
In an interview with the entertainment website Pep.ph, Ramsay said it is not true that they have gotten back together, adding that he believes that they are better off as friends.
“No, it’s not true. We’re friends, we're better off that way. Nakita ko nga sa Instagram na parang sinasabing boses ni Derek 'yun... hindi ako yun,” he said.
Despite their breakup, Ramsay said she and Reyes have managed to go back to how they used to be when they were just close friends.
“Yeah, we were like what we used to be. Kaibigan niya rin 'yung best friend ko from Australia. Parang nagsama kami, apat kami noon. 'Yung ex-boss ng best friend ko was with us. And there were few days na we did something together,” he explained.
While they stayed in the same hotel in Hawaii, Ramsay clarified that they weren’t together the entire time.
“Cristine and I, we’re in the same hotel, we were able to talk, so wala kaming problema. But she moved to… she had a show pa in the States, mainland. She went off to the mainland. Ako, bumalik na ako dito,” he said.
Ramsay added: “There, she had her own thing, her own itinerary. Pero there was one time na we did all go out, and we had a lot of fun. Clean fun.”
By Ramsay's admission, he and Reyes became a couple last August 28, after being close friends since 2011 when they co-starred in the romance-drama film "No Other Woman."
It was on October 7 when Ramsay admitted that his one-month romance with the actress was the “shortest longest relationship” he ever had.
“Shortest [because] it’s a month. Longest, because I have a friend for life. And I’m gonna be her friend for life,” he said in a report published on philstar.com.
While he refused to give details about his breakup with Reyes, Ramsay said, “It’s just a decision that was made.”
