In a separate interview on Friday, Lustre said she doesn’t have to explain something, because there is nothing to explain.
“Hindi ko naman kailangan i-explain sa kanila iyon kasi hindi naman talaga,” said Lustre. “Kung ayaw naman nila maniwala, hindi ko na problema iyon. We all know that truth naman talaga.”
When sought to comment on the statement of Villongco that she will be happy if she and Reid will ended up as boyfriend and girlfriend, Lustre said she’s happy that she is still showing support despite of their break-up.
