Sam Milby ‘astonished’ over ex Mari Jasmine’s closeted relationship with female director
Actor Sam Milby has admitted that he felt astonished over reports that his former partner, model, blogger and TV host Mari Jasmine, is now in a closeted relationship with a female director.
This comes after Mari Jasmine recently made the revealation in an Instagram post that she is currently in a relationship with “Baka Bukas” director Samantha Lee.
While answering questions in an interview on Tuesday at the grand media launch of his upcoming drama series “Halik,” Milby said he felt astonished by the news.
“I didn’t expect, there was no sign. So, I was surprised lang noong nalaman ko,” he said. “I don’t really want to say too much. I knew a while before pero noong kami, no signs, wala. I didn’t know that she’s open to that kind of relationship so I had no idea.”
“It’s not my story to tell,” he quickly added. “From my understanding, it’s her first time to experience relationship with a woman. But walang overlapping. There was no ‘yung siya yung third party kaya kami nag-break, it’s not like that. We broke up and she started dating.”
Milby further stressed that against all odds, he and Mari Jasmine remain very good friends.
“If she’s happy, then I’m happy for her. No bitterness in that sense kasi ‘yun nga no overlapping,”
“Sometimes you really hope na magwo-work out ang relationship but sometimes it doesn’t,” he said.
Mari Jasmine, a Philippine blogger and a lifestyle TV host, is best known to be the ex-girlfriend of singer and actor Sam Milby. Their relationship had been low-key until late last year when things turned sour between and they finally broke up.
