Actor Derek Ramsay himself confirmed that he and Kapamilya actress Angelica Panganiban had parted ways for now. Derek revealed to Yahoo! OMG that they were in a cool-off stage right now.
“We are in a cool-off stage. We’re giving each other space.” Derek relayed to Yahoo! OMG over the phone on May 2.
Derek and Angelica never had the chance to talk to each other since Holy Week when Angelica left for Vietnam with John Lloyd Cruz for the shoot of the Star Magic movie while Derek took a vacation in Australia.
Last month, rumors about Derek and Angelica's break-up surfaced after reports of Angelica being linked to John Lloyd and Derek to sexbomb Aifa. This was intensified by Derek not thanking Angelica in his acceptance speech during the 43rd Guillermo Mendoza Box Office Entertainment awards where he was hailed as the Box Office King.
Today, after confirming that they had called it quits for now, Derek was quick to say that there was no third party involved saying that she trusted Angelica completely, being not the type who will fool around. However, Derek did not divulge the real reason why their relationship is on the rocks.
Some speculates that the real reason for Derek and Angelica's break up, if not the third party was Derek's decision to transfer to TV5. Angelica, who was in Vietnam when Derek decided to shift networks said that her now ex-boyfriend did not tell her about it. She just knew it in the news although she expressed support to Derek's decision after her return from shooting abroad, saying that if Derek finds happiness in his decision, then she will give her all-out support.
Above all this issue, Derek expressed his intentions to talk to Angelica to iron matters out if their busy schedules permit.
“If things go well, okay. But if not, she will always be my friend,” Derek declares.
If this is really the end of their 6-year relationship, then what a sad news to hear. We hope they can straighten things up and talk about their problems to save their relationship.
