MANILA -- Former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Kisses Delavin described as "fake news" reports that Edward Barber will be her new love team partner, weeks after her tandem with Marco Gallo has been scrapped.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News at the launch of her debut album at SM Skydome on Monday, Delavin stressed that she will not be paired with Barber, who is the love team partner of her friend Maymay Entrata.
"May respeto ako sa partner ni Edward," Delavin said. "May respeto po ako sa lahat ng kaibigan ko. Hindi po ako open na maki-partner sa partner ng kaibigan ko."
But Delavin admitted that she is now happier after the end of her love team with Gallo.
"If may part sa akin na nalulungkot, 'yun 'yung sa fans, 'yung sa KissMarc supporters kasi love ko sila. And it hurts me to think na nagdurugo ang puso nila because of the love team. Pero what I can promise them is that it's for the best. Talagang ngayon I feel happier, I feel blessed, I feel free, I feel comfortable, I feel safe," said Delavin.
"I don't want to say anything more. Pero ang masasabi ko we are better off like this and para sa mas ikakasaya ng karamihan ng tao yung ganito," she added.
In the end, Delavin appealed to KissMarc supporters to accept her and Gallo's decision.
"Sa lahat po ng KissMarc, I know you are sad pero it's just trempory sadness, promise ko sa inyo. Na-experience ko din 'yan kasi fan girl ako ni Taylor Swift. Masasabi ko sa inyo na if you really love the people you support, maiintinidhan niyo 'yung hindi niyo maintindihan kasi makikita niyo sa kanya na masaya siya so magiging masaya ka din," she said.
