MANILA, Philippines – Actor Derek Ramsay finally broke his silence on reports that his former girlfriend Angelica Panganiban and actor John Lloyd Cruz were seen several times together.

Ramsay said he has no clue on what is really going on between Panganiban and Cruz but if his former girlfriend is happy with him, then he wishes them the best.

“That’s good. If she finds something that I lack in John Lloyd, then I’m happy for them. I don’t know exactly what’s going on between Angel and John Lloyd. I don’t wanna make any assumptions. But if kung meron, I wish them the best,” Ramsay told the Philippine Entertainment Portal in an interview before he left for London to cover the Olympics.

Ramsay added he is hoping Panganiban could find her happiness in Cruz.

Just recently, Panganiban was asked if she still has any communication with Ramsay and she said she is just waiting for Ramsay’s call.

Asked for his reaction to Panganiban’s statement, Ramsay said: “You know, I’d love to see Angel and talk to her face to face, or even a phone call. But I’m sure she’s very busy, and from what I’ve seen on TV, she looks very happy.”

Ramsay added he’d probably give Panganiban a call but he does not really know what to say.

Ramsay also said he is happy because he and Panganiban have no bitterness in their past relationship.

“The great thing about this is, kung bakit pareho kaming nakaka-move on, is walang siraan, walang badmouthing. If you weigh the scale, mas lamang ang good times namin sa bad times by a big chunk. So, alam mo na we had a very mature relationship. Walang I love you now, I hate you tomorrow,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ramsay admitted that he has already moved on from his relationship with Panganiban. He, however, said he will never forget all the good memories they’ve shared when they were still together.

“You know what? It’s not easy to forget six years, and I definitely will never forget. That’s a lot of memories. And every now and then, mapapa-look back ka. But then, our paths just didn’t end up the same way, and I’m very happy where I am right now,” he said.

At this point, Ramsay said he is ready to “meet new people and enjoy life.”

“My dad said it, ‘The day you’re born is the day you start dying.’ So, might as well…what you do in between that, must matter. So, you gotta get on your feet and ipagpatuloy ang buhay,” he said.

Asked if he is ready to fall in love again, the actor said: “You know, that hits you anytime. When you say you’re not ready, or when you say you’re ready, that hits you. The best way to know about the next relationship you’ll have is you don’t look for it.”

Ramsay said he is just thankful to have his family around, whether in good or bad times.

“I am. I have a wonderful family who is always there for me. Every time I fall down, they’re there to pick me up. That’s why I’m very lucky my family is always there for me. So, when I was down because of the breakup, they’re there to pick me up,” he said.
