“Di pa [ako handa makipagrelasyon], saka na ang stress na ganon. Stress muna sa work,” she said during the press conference of her upcoming movie “The Strangers.”

Dee has admitted his “relationship” with Montes is not the same anymore due to their hectic work schedules.

Montes also cleared her "Walang Hanggan" leading man Coco Martin, who is said to be one of the reasons her “relationship” with Dee has changed.

“Kasi hindi naman dapat [madamay si Coco]. Wala namang hiwalayang nangyari and dapat hindi siya ipasok kasi siya lang naman ay katrabaho ko... so hindi dapat ipasok,” said Montes, who is shooting a film with Martin.

The young actress also denied that there is a gap between her and actress Maja Salvador because of Dee.

Dee and Salvador are currently starring in the primetime hit "Ina Kapatid Anak."

Montes said it is not true that she and Salvador are not in good terms.

“Wala, walang ganun. Siguro kung ano man ang mga nangyari sa off-cam namin, walang epekto sa aming tatlo gaya ng lumalabas, kasi kaming lahat okay kami. Lahat kami nagtatrabaho, lahat kami busy sa bawat show,” she said.
