Nadine Lustre was asked to react to the KathNiel breakup
Award-winning actress Nadine Lustre shared her thought on the breakup between Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
Nadine, just like the KathNiel, rose to fame through a loveteam. She was part of the successful JaDine tandem. Together with James Reid, her former onscreen and real-life partner, Nadine did successful projects.
However, JaDine also came to the point of breaking up. This broke the heart of their fans who had been supporting them since they worked together in the movie Ang Diary ng Pangit.
Just recently, KathNiel fans also expressed sadness when Kathryn and Daniel confirmed their breakup. After 11 years of being together, they parted ways. Their mothers, Karla Estrada and Min Bernardo also shared heartfelt posts about the separation.
In an interview after the KathNiel breakup confirmation, Nadine Lustre was asked to react to this, based on the article in Bandera.
Nadine admitted that she is not that close to the former couple and so she can’t really comment about this. “I can’t really say so much about it because I’m not super close to them. I don’t think I can comment on anything. Pero ang tagal din ng 11 years,” the actress said.
She also shared her thoughts on the loveteam culture in the Philippine entertainment industry. Nadine was asked also if she ever experienced that she was pushed to stay in the loveteam even though the separation in real life already happened.
The actress said that luckily, she was not able to experience this. She acknowledges the fact that professionalism is needed in this job but she is also aware that the management would sometimes “force” it for business purposes.
However, she said that she is thankful that the entertainment industry is changing already. There had been notion now among showbiz fans that two celebrities in a loveteam does not mean they are a couple in real life.
“Ngayon, everyone is more understanding, and everyone is more professional. I think it should be like that,” Nadine Lustre said.
