Jadaone and Villegas trace the beginning of their relationship to 2013, when they worked together in Star Cinema movie “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo”. Jadaone was the production’s script continuity supervisor, while Villegas was director of photography.

Their romance translated to joint creative pursuits. They’ve formed a filmmaking duo of sorts, resulting in hits like “That Thing Called Tadhana”, “The Breakup Playlist”, “Never Not Love You”, and “Alone/Together”.
