On Tonight With Boy Abunda, Maris Racal got real about her relationship status with Iñigo Pascual. She revealed that they were never officially together but were more than friends. She said they had a “mutual understanding,” but “we didn’t have time to really go out because of work.” Did they ever say “I miss you” or “I love you” to each other? “I guess minahal namin ang isa’t isa.”
The actress admitted that Iñigo broke her heart. “Okay na ako. Wala na ‘yon, past na ‘yon.” There was no third party—it just didn’t work out, she said. When they had the talk, Maris said Iñigo shed some tears. “Okay na ako noon e. Accepted ko na. Matagal na akong okay na.” Having cleared the air, the two are open to working with each other in the future, but are focused on their solo careers for now.
In a recent episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, Maris reunited with her former love team partner, McCoy de Leon. Asked if she felt closer to McCoy or Iñigo at the moment, she said, “Myself! Myself and my peace of mind.”
