Last October, Kris Bernal confirmed in an interview that she is exclusively dating singer Jay Perillo.
Kris Bernal shared the trait that attracted her the most with Jay was his being thoughtful. Even though it’s difficult for them to find time to meet and date because of their busy schedules, Jay Perillo occasionally visited Kris on the set of the now defunct primetime series Time of My Life.
However, during the presscon of her movie “Panday 2” which is topbilled by Senator Bong Revilla Jr. and Marian Rivera, Kris Bernal revealed that she and Jay are no longer in a relationship.
Kris told the entertainment press that she and Jay decided to focus on their individual careers.
“Okay naman, pero nag-decide kami na ngayon siguro, parang lie-low muna. Siguro hindi lang kami nagkakaintindihan kase hindi kami masyadong nagkikita, hindi kami masyadong lumalabas.”
Jay Perillo, on the other hand, told Sun Star that he and Kris were never together in the first place, but admitted that they were in a “special relationship”.
“I wouldn’t say ‘break’ because there’s nothing going on na sinabi namin to begin with. Pero yun nga, since she asked na medyo mag-lie low muna kami. So, yun ang ginawa namin ngayon,” Jay said in the interview.
Despite the break-up, Jay described Kris as the perfect woman for him and he is hoping that he would be given another chance with her someday.
“Katulad nga nung sinabi ko sa mga past interviews ko, na wala nang ibang magiging perpekto pang babae sa mata ko kundi si Kris. I never loved anybody the way I love her.” he said.
