Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber issued a joint statement about the real status of their relationship on Instagram yesterday, April 5.
Addressing their fans and followers, the two stars, who first became a team-up in 2017, announced that they will not be getting into a relationship.
“Sa loob po ng tatlong taon na nandito ang MayWard, nakita niyo po at narinig niyo mula mismo sa aming dalawa ang tunay na nararamdaman namin para sa isa’t isa. Masaya at masarap po sa pakiramdam ang idea ng isang romantic relationship, but as we go along our journey, we realize na hindi basta-basta lang to get into a relationship,” they said.
They continued, “Sana po ay maintindihan niyo po kami. Patuloy naming inaalagaan ang isa’t isa at ang relasyon naming bilang magkaibigan. Sa ilang taon naming pagsasama, sa trabaho man at sa personal, pareho po naming na-realize na sa estado ng buhay namin ngayon, we both are still very young, and there is so much more we still want to achieve in our lives."
The two then clarified that they will remain the “best of friends.”
"We both agree there is no need to rush into anything. This means not having a romantic relationship between us at this point. Pareho po namin na-realize that being the best of friends will even be more beneficial for us. Mas komportable kami makakapag-trabaho. Wala pong pagbabago. Kami pa rin ang magkasama dahil there’s no one else we would rather work with, than each other,” they clarified.
“Pinapanalangin po namin ang inyong suporta, respeto, at pagmamahal sa amin, pati na sa aming pamilya at mga kaibigan. Maraming salamat po, stay safe, and God bless everyone. We love you," they added.
Maymay and Edward were both products of the seventh season of “Pinoy Big Brother.” They starred in a number of projects together since, including “Loving in Tandem” in 2017, and “Da One That Ghost Away” and “Fantastica” in 2018
