MANILA – Jessy Mendiola recently surprised former boyfriend, JM De Guzman, as the actor celebrated his birthday.
De Guzman turned 26 last September 9.
In an interview with entertainment site Push, Mendiola said she just finished shooting that day when her friends told her to drop by De Guzman’s party to surprise him.
“Oo, nagpunta ako nong birthday niya, nagkataon kasi noon na kakatapos ko lang ng shooting, tapos siyempre alam ko birthday niya. Sabi ko, ‘Oh pasabi na lang happy birthday.’ Parang sabi nila, ‘Hindi daan ka dito sa birthday niya, sa bahay ng tita niya,’” she shared.
Admitting that she was initially hesitant, Mendiola said: “Sabi ko, ‘Ay talaga ba nahihiya kasi ako eh.’ Kasi ‘di ba siyempre medyo ilang pa. Tsaka ang tagal naming hindi nagkita. Sabi nila, ’Punta ka.’ Sabi ko, ‘Sige ita-try ko.”
When she arrived at the party, Mendiola said De Guzman was really surprised because no one told him that she was coming over.
“Nakakatuwa na nagbabalik siya na masaya siya nung gabing 'yun, alam mo 'yung mukha niya nagulat talaga siya na nandoon ako kasi hindi pinasabi, parang surprise,” she said.
The actress, however, shared that it was not the first time that they saw each other since they parted ways.
“Sa UP parang tumatakbo ako tapos biglang may nag-stop sa harap ko sabi niya ‘Uy.’ Sabi ko ‘Uy!’ Alam mo tumigil talaga ako sa gitna ng UP, lahat ng tao nakatingin sa amin kasi napasigaw ako sabi ko, ‘Uy kumusta ka?’ 'Yun ang first meeting namin since matagal na and ayon nakakatuwa naman,” she said.
Mendiola said she is genuinely happy that she and De Guzman have remained friends even after their publicized breakup.
