Erich Gonzales finally broke her silence about her apparent breakup with Daniel Matsunaga. The Kapamilya actress, who deleted all of her pictures with Daniel on Insta last week, spoke to ABS-CBN in her first interview following the issue, saying:
“It’s true po that we’re not together anymore. It’s over. To be honest po ayoko po talagang mag-detalye. I just want to move on.”
Rumors about a third party were also quickly dismissed by both Daniel and Erich. However, the actress stressed she and her ex are not in speaking terms:
“Hindi po kami nag-uusap. It’s not true that we are talking. Hindi po kami magkaibigan. Walang third party po.”
When pressed to give details about her breakup, Erich chose her words carefully as to keep the details private:
“Like what I said, ayoko na sanang mag-detalye pa. I just really want to move on. I want to help myself. So that’s what I’m doing po.
I just have to accept na may mga bagay-bagay talaga na we cannot control 'yung mga nangyayari sa buhay natin. Hindi natin kontrolado. So, life goes on.”
Erich revealed that she’s hanging on to her family, friends, and the Lord during this trying time in her life. She did, though, have to take a social media detox when the rumors unfurled and confirmed to have deleted Daniel’s photos and unfollowing him online:
“I don’t really read any comments na siyempre—I mean, people want to believe what they want to believe. And, like I said, kami lang [ni Daniel] talaga ang nakakaalam ng totoo.
Yes, I deleted the photos. I unfollowed them. Like what I said, I just want to help myself.”
Believing they won’t be friends any time soon, Erich had this to say about what she learned from their breakup:
“Kapag nagmahal ka kailangan magtira ka pa para sa sarili mo.”
Erich and Daniel confirmed their relationship in May 2015.
