Early this year, Bela Padilla admitted that she and Neil Arce have broken up. The “100 Tula Para Kay Stella” star clarified that she had no problem with her ex being linked to another celebrity and she is ‘happily single’. However, she revealed that Neil would forever be a part of her.
“Hindi kami mawawala sa buhay ng isa’t isa forever. Alam ko na maasahan ko si Neil kahit kalian at alam niya rin naman na maasahan niya rin ako. Kapag may kailangan siya andito lang naman ako. So hindi kasi ako natatakot na mawawala kami from each other.”
Moreover, the actress shared whoever would be her future boyfriend should accept that she and Neil are a package deal. She said that as time passes, they would come to a point where they only treat each other as siblings.
Still, Bela emphasized many times how the film producer would always be in her life.
Meanwhile, Neil is now being linked to the actress, Angel Locsin. When Bela was asked about it, she said that she was actually in good terms with Angel. Padilla even congratulated Locsin on the recent award that she got.
As a matter of fact, a few months ago, Bela revealed that Angel invited her on her birthday.
It’s not often that exes support each other in their present or future relationships. Bela appeared to be happy that Neil is seeing someone. She said:
“If they aren’t, they will be, I feel. They have a very good foundation and I see both them, they’re compatible.”
Even after their breakup, the former Neil and Bela showed that they are professionals. They got to work on projects together, but Padilla said that they did not talk about personal matters.
Here are some reactions from the netizens:
Apparently, some people thought of Bela’s statement as unfair.
Yet, she is being defended for staying friends with Arce and Locsin.
