Derek Ramsay has finally confirmed that he and Angelica Panganiban had ended their six-year relationship.
Derek Ramsay tweeted on Monday: “Guys we truly appreciate all ur concerns. Even though Angel and I are no longer together we still have the utmost respect for one another.”
The Kapatid hunk also appealed for understanding from his fans on behalf of the Kapamilya actress who, rumors say, has found a new love in ABS-CBN matinee idol John Lloyd Cruz.
To it’smelagreta, he pleaded: “Huwag n’yo naman bastusin si Angel.”
To addicted2mk, he explained why he remains protective of his ex-girlfriend: “Angel has always been supportive of everything I do.”
@justAfan08 I’m not proud of the breakup! How I wish things were different. I can’t be selfish and consider only my feelings.
It seems the breakup happened around the time Derek signed up with TV5 and left ABS-CBN, where Angelica remains a contract star.
Derek has steadfastly denied speculations that a third party on either side was involved. He also dismissed the rumor linking him to Sam Pinto.
Speculations of a breakup started last April 29, 2012 after Derek failed to mention Angelica’s name when he accepted his Box Office King award at the Guillermo Mendoza Awards.
He admitted then that he and Angelica were having a rough time in their relationship.
“Angel and I are working things out. We’re talking. May pinagdadaanan kami,” Derek revealed after the awarding ceremonies.
He hinted at a happy resolution by saying, “Pinagdaanan na rin namin ito before. So we’ll see. ‘Pag nag-usap na kami doon kami magsasalita.”
Two days later, he sent Angelica this intriguing tweet: “Be strong. We all know who you are and that there is no truth to what’s being said. I’m here for you if you ever need anything.”
Angelica Panganiban just ignored the tweet and did not issued any statement regarding the breakup and the rumors linking her to John Lloyd.
