1 Three weeks ago Jasmine Curtis-Smith posted a snap of her and Erwan Heussaff (who was celebrating his birthday at the time) in an embrace, with him appearing to be kissing her cheek. Fans went crazy and rushed to Anne Curtis' defense. Anne wouldn't have any of it though, because people were being "malicious." Finally, Jasmine shares "Actually, hindi ako nasaktan. More than anything, nagulat lang the way people reacted. But at the end of the day, you can't avoid that there are cultural differences, there are people who might just [not] understand the relationship that the three of us have. So I can't blame them, I guess. [Erwan and I] have been that way ever since [he and Anne] have been dating. It's not that biglaan na may na-develop na ganun na closeness between us." She's also not affected by all the hate comments people have hurled at her. "I don't know them personally, they don't know me personally. So I don't let it affect me." (PEP)
