Sa eksklusibong panayam sa Mega Man magazine, inamin ni James Reid na kahit hiwalay na sila ni Nadine Lustre ay patuloy pa rin ang kanilang komunikasyon.
Katunayan, kung nakikita mang magkasama sila sa ilang showbiz or non-showbiz functions pagkatapos ng kanilang much talked about na hiwalayan blues, iyon daw ay dahil nananatili pa ang bond nila bilang magkaibigan lalo na’t may collaboration ang controversial Viva artist sa kanyang outfit na Careless Music.
“I am not sure who I am without Nadine yet. We’ve been in a love team for so long. And that’s been my whole life. I can’t even begin to think of who I am or what I’m supposed to be outside of that love team, which is scary. And that’s why I said I got a lot of figuring out to do. But as far as aspirations go, I’d like to just get to know myself better and become more independent,”pahayag niya.
Hirit pa niya, kahit split na sila, nananatiling mahal pa rin daw niya si Nadine.
“People might say I’m a bit heartless. I don’t want it to seem like me wanting to know who I am without Nadine is the only reason. There are too many to point out, but that’s all I’m able to share without going into depth. I still love her. It’s just my perspective on love has broadened,” paliwanag niya. (Archie Liao)
