Claudine Barretto has finally spoken about the romance of her former husband Raymart Santiago and his new girlfriend Jodi Sta. Maria.
In an interview with PEP last January 25, the Optimum Star shared that she felt bad when the "Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin" actress didn't tell her about the dating news.
“I was very, very close to Jodi. That’s why I really felt so bad na hindi niya sinabi," she revealed. "Ang ginawa ko, kinuha ko ang number niya kay Raymart, ako ang tumawag sa kanya. Nagkausap kami."
“Maayos 'yung pag-uusap namin. Until meron akong isang hiniling sa kanila na um-oo sila. It was for the kids. They didn’t live up kung ano 'yung promise nila. 'Yun 'yung medyo hindi okay," she said.
Claudine has two kids with Raymart, namely Sabina and Santino.
The Optimum Star also shared how she was very ecstatic for their families to be "blended" together.
"Noong una talaga, full support pa ako, e. I was so excited, blended family, ganyan-ganyan. Pero just for them honestly, with all sincerity, I want them to be happy. Just don’t forget my children. 'Yun lang naman ‘yun,” she said.
In spite of the circumstance, Claudine said that she's very happy for the new couple.
“I think everybody deserves to be happy. Kahit hindi kami nagkakasundo ni Raymart, at the end of the day, I want them to be happy. Kasi at the end of the day, he’s still the father of my children," she said.
“Ang akin lang, huwag lang niyang kalimutan ang mga responsibilidad niya. Kasi medyo hindi niya nagagawa 'yung dapat niyang gawin eh. Hindi siya sumusunod eh. 'Yun lang naman ang akin. Kung anong meron sila sa buhay nila, okay, go,” she stressed.
Jodi and Raymart went public with their relationship in October last year.
