The actor said, “Everything happened so fast, like I said, we skipped the whole dating (phase).I guess in the three years that we have known each other, wala naman kaming intention e, any intention naming maging magkaibigan.” Derek had to take back his own words when he declared previously that he doesn’t want a girlfriend from showbiz anymore.
” *** We join many other fans, friends and family of Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez in praying for the continued healing of her father, Mang Gerry, after surviving a major operation recently.
Aside from being a loving father to Regine, Mang Gerry is also the singer’s mentor and rock during the start of her career.
In an interview with Star Studio last March, the actress revealed that they had three major problems troubling their relationship: Derek being too controlling, the actor’s marriage to a certain Mary Christine Jolly in 2002, and his lack of support in her quest to find her biological father.
A heated argument further ignited the failing relationship between the two, when Angelica said that she doesn’t feel anything anymore.
Last August 30, Regine updated everyone about the current condition of her father, saying that although he is not clearly out of the woods yet, they consider the successful operation a miracle, due to Mang Gerry’s age, being in his 70s.
They also believe that through God’s grace and prayers, her father will pull through.
“'Wag n'yo na abalahin kung sino siya, kasi ayoko na rin siyang maabala kasi non-showbiz siya,” she said laughing in an interview Thursday.
Although they're dating for over a year now, the Kapamilya actress doesn't want to put a label to their relationship yet, saying “may mga bagay na kailangan pang alamin.” This admission from Cristine confirms her fans' specualtions on the photo posted by her sister Ara Mina last Sunday on the latter's Instagram account.
So okay na okay talaga ko.” Meanwhile, Cristine didn't deny that she was a bit uneasy doing the sexy scenes with Derek in their film “Trophy Wife.” “'Yong sa bathtub scene kasi wala na kami nang ginawa 'yon,” she explained. Kasi parang naninibago ako na from friends, lovers, tapos nagkahiwalay.
So medyo may ilang pero okay naman, gentleman naman kasi si Derek.” Also starring in the film are Heart Evangelista and John Estrada.
I will keep this to myself for now, to be honest with you.
