MANILA -- Angel Locsin feels it is "too soon" for her former boyfriend, football player Phil Younghusband, to be courting someone after their recent breakup.
The 28-year-old actress made the statement when asked for her reaction to rumors romantically linking Younghusband and TV star KC Concepcion.
"We know how it is in showbiz; not everything we read in the papers or see on TV is true," Locsin was quoted as saying by the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a report published Wednesday.
"I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. It's just that, as his ex, parang ang bilis," said Locsin, who was speaking on the sidelines of a recent event held by local clothing line Folded & Hung, which she endorses.
Although she has yet to confirm the rumor involving Concepcion, Locsin added that the Azkals striker will always have her support in "whatever will make him happy."
"Come to think of it, it's his life," she added. "I have nothing to do with [Phil] anymore."
Locsin confirmed her separation from Younghusband in late October. The celebrities became a couple on May 27, 2012, following a year-long romance that started with a tweet from the football player asking the actress out for Valentine's Day.
Younghusband, throughout their relationship, was vocal of his hopes of settling down with Locsin. "I plan to marry Angel. When is the question. But I know Angel is the one. She's the one, and I know I want my future to be with her," he said at the time.
