For the record, the interviews weren't new. However, eagle-eyed netizens recently unearthed the videos of his revelations about his past relationship. And it was confirmed that he was certainly in a ~messy~ situation between two ladies—who were once the best of friends!
The ladies in question? They were his G-mik co-stars, Camille Prats and Angelica Panganiban. It was known that Camille and Carlo were already a thing in their set back then, but one thing led to another, and he ended up also dating Angelica.
In a Gandang Gabi Vice (GGV) interview clip uploaded in 2017, Vice asked Carlo if he remembered his first love, which he quickly answered. Carlo admitted that Camille was his first love during their teenage years.
The former child star also disclosed that he dated Angelica for nearly six years. But when asked who he dated first, Carlo shyly laughed at Vice. The comedian quipped, "Hindi mo masagot kasi sabay (sila na naging girlfriend mo) ano?"
A year later, Carlo returned to the show with Angelica who was already his ex-girlfriend in 2018. The same tidbits about Carlo's first love were brought up. For clarity, Vice asked Carlo, "Crush ka ni Angelica pero ang bet mo noon si Camille?"
Carlo said that Camille was his girlfriend before dating Angelica. It took some time before he decided to start dating the latter. "Na-realize ko na siya (Angelica) pala 'yung (gusto ko)," Carlo proclaimed.
In that same episode of GGV, Vice intrigued the former couple on the reason why it's impossible for them to be together again. Carlo calmly stated, "Natatakot kasi akong baka masaktan ko ulit siya (Angelica)."
The GGV host then directly asked Angelica if Carlo had ever cheated on her—which she confirmed. Once again, Vice asked Carlo, "So 'yun 'yung kinakatakot mo uli, baka maloko mo uli si Angelica?" The bachelor responded with a nod.
In a May 2023 podcast episode, the Kapuso actress Camille talked about her first heartbreak when she was 14. She described it as something that was traumatizing for her, yet it taught her a lot about the kind of relationship she wanted.
Growing up as a child actress, it was not a secret to Camille how showbiz relationships work. She revealed that it was kind of a normal situation to mingle and even work with your ex-partner and his new partner—but it was something she could not handle.
"Kasi nga trauma ko 'yon. Hindi ko kayang pagsamahin 'yung trabaho at personal... Hindi ko kaya 'yung ex ko tapos nakikita ko pa. Tapos makikita ko 'yung bago niyang jowa, tapos magkakakilala kaming lahat? I cannot, parang na-shookt ako. 'Yun 'yung isang bagay na I cannot deal," Camille told Pia Arcangel in her podcast.
The actress did not cite names but Pia gestured a letter 'C' to confirm the identity of the ex Camille was referring to, and she affirmed Pia's guess.

Carlo is currently in a relationship with Kapamilya star Charlie Dizon. He is also in a rocky co-parenting set-up with ex-girlfriend Trina Candaza, who is the mother of his first daughter, Enola Mithi.
