MANILA, Philippines – There may be chance for them to get back together, said former actress Aiko Melendez of her ex-husband actor Jomari Yllana.

"Kung meron mang balikang mangyayari, hindi pa siguro ngayon, siguro in the near future," Melendez said in an interview with "Showbiz Inside Report" that aired Saturday.

Years after their bitter separation in 2003, Melendez and Yllana have managed to become good friends, owing in part to their "mature" disposition.

"It comes with age na kung dati 'yung ugali when I was younger, siguro hindi ko kaibigan yung mga exes ko ngayon, kasi magiging makitid lang ang utak ko," Melendez said.

After her separation from Yllana, with whom she has a son, Melendez married model Martin Jickain.

In 2010, her four-year marriage with Jickain, with whom she has a daughter, was annulled.

Since being separated from the former model, Melendez has developed a close friendship with her first husband, Yllana. This has fueled speculations that the two are open to being romantically involved anew.

"Of course I love Jomari," Melendez said. "And I feel that he still loves me.

"Nararamdaman ko naman na alam ni Jomari na kahit wala kaming isang deep relationship or commitment, alam niya na kapag nalagay siya sa alanganin, andiyan ako," she added.
