Going through a breakup is one of the hardest things anyone could face. This probably explains why it took a while for Sam Milby to talk about Mari Jasmine and her new relationship. During an Aegis concert at the Araneta Coliseum, Sam told ABS-CBN how he really felt about Mari’s newfound love.
“It’s hard to say. Actually, I’m happy for her.”
It’s quite apparent in the interview that the actor-singer struggled to find words to say in terms of talking about his ex. However, Sam made it clear that Mari’s new relationship has nothing to do with their recent breakup.
“I want to make it clear, there was no overlapping in terms of that relationship. So to clear her name from that, baka may mga iniisip na, ‘Ah kaya pala nag-break sila ni Sam,”
Sam told Boy Abunda in May this year that he and his Mari already called it quits. However, he did not reveal any more details about their breakup. He said that they remain “okay” to each other despite them not being on speaking terms.
Sam and Mari made their relationship public in 2016. Just last year, Sam revealed that he sees Mari as “the one” as he does not go into any relationship without having marriage as an end goal.
July this year, Mari shocked many when she admitted being in a relationship with an award-winning director, Samantha Lee. She took shared her piece on Instagram, following the celebration of Pride Month. She wrote:
“My dream is to live in a world where I feel safe walking down the street holding my girlfriend’s hand,”
Sam Milby is currently working on her upcoming teleserye “Halik.” He will star alongside Jericho Rosales, Yen Santos, and Yam Concepcion.
