Kapamilya actor Sam Milby admitted that he was surprised to hear that his ex-girlfriend Mari Jasmine came out with her new relationship with filmmaker Samantha Lee.
"I don't really want to say too much. I knew a while before pero noong kami, no signs, wala,” he told ABS-CBN News. “I didn't know that she's open to that kind of relationship so I had no idea. I didn't expect - there was no sign - so I was surprised lang noong nalaman ko.”
"From my understanding, it's her first time to experience a relationship with a woman,” he added.
The blogger and model first announced her relationship with the “Baka Bukas” director earlier this July after celebrating Pride Month.

He was pressed for more during this most recent interview, but said, "It's not my story to tell."
“Walang overlapping,” he stressed. “There was no 'yung siya ‘yung third party kaya kami nag-break - it's not like that. We broke up and she started dating."
Sam then assured everyone that he and Mari are on good terms.
“We’re okay. We’re friends,” he said. “If she's happy, then I'm happy for her. No bitterness in that sense kasi 'yun nga no overlapping.”
He revealed that he’s very much at peace with how his relationship with the blogger ended, saying, “We had our relationship. We had a lot of great things about our relationship, but it didn’t work out. Sometimes you really hope na magwo-work out ang relationship but sometimes it doesn't.”
Sam’s newest teleserye “Halik” will air on primetime soon. He stars alongside Jericho Rosales, Yen Santos, and Yam Concepcion.
