So it’s official: Ellen Adarna and Baste Duterte have broken up.
The Kapamilya star first spoke about their breakup via an Instagram reply to one of her followers but has only opened up about it in a recent interview with PEP.ph.
Ellen, whose relationship with the presidential son lasted for around seven months, related how Baste initiated the split via text.
“It was a very weird breakup,” she said.
“Instead of parang [texting your] girlfriend na ‘Good morning,’ ganyan-ganyan, ang text niya, ‘Ano kaya kung maghiwalay tayo?’ Question mark. Siya ang nagsabi. And then, ayun, hindi na kami nag-usap.”
Ellen didn’t want to get into details about why they ended their relationship but stated she wasn’t shocked with what happened.
But what’s the deal with the recent social media posts with Baste then? Well, their friendship trumps any awkwardness about their short-lived romance.
Ellen dishes that although they did share a romantic relationship together, she still considers Baste one of her best friends:
“Actually, nagkakasundo talaga kami ni Baste. He is like my best friend na he can talk to me about anything, and I can talk to him about anything also. May time na naghiwalay kami na hindi kami nag-usap. Yes, it’s part of the process, may ganun. Hindi kami nag-uusap, and then after New Year, we spoke...
And then, last week lang, nagkita kami, magkasama with friends. Okay na. Okay na talaga, friends na lang talaga kami.”
