"I don't really wanna say too much," said the actor initially, but he then admitted he was very surprised to hear about the relationship. "I didn't know that she was open for that kind of relationship, so I had no idea."
"From my understanding, this is her first time to experience a relationship with a woman," said Sam.
Despite these questions, Sam was quick to reiterate that there's no overlapping between his relationship with Mari and her current relationship with Samantha. "Hindi parang, siya yung third party kaya kami nag-break. No. It's not like that. We were broken up, and then they started dating."
Sam stressed that he and Mari are on good terms. "We're okay. We're friends," he said. "If that's where she's happy, I'm happy for her. No bitterness in that sense."
