MANILA, Philippines - Actress Melissa Ricks has hinted that there is an existing spat between her and ex-boyfriend Jake Cuenca.
Though she clarified that she is holding no grudge against Cuenca, Ricks' statements during her most recent interview with Push.com.ph prove otherwise.
"Hindi naman ako 'yung tipo ng tao na nagho-hold ng grudge. Hindi ako 'yung taong parang I would talk bad about someone, hindi ako 'yung ganong tao. Pero ang sa akin lang 'yung respetong ibinibigay ko sa 'yo, ibigay mo rin sa akin," she said.
When asked to further elaborate on what she meant by "respect," on the other hand, Ricks has refused to go into details.
She explained, “Rumispeto, alam na niya (Cuenca) 'yon. I don't want to tell the world kung ano ang nangyari, basta ang akin, respeto dahil may respeto din ako sa kanya."
Ricks admitted her breakup with Cuenca around May of this year.
Though it has already been 5 months since they went separate ways, Ricks claimed that she is not yet looking for a new romance.
She said, "Ako I'm not pressured to find anyone. If that person comes along, sige pero right now I'm not into dating. Ayaw ko ng mga ganyan muna. Magko-concentrate muna ako sa work ko."
"Alam niyo ang relationship, para sa akin, hindi ka dapat nangongolekta. Hindi ka dapat nanloloko ng ibang tao. When you feel it and you're ready, it's a lifetime commitment. It's not a commitment na now lang [or] for a couple of months. When you're with somebody, you see your future with them."
