In a rare moment, Derek Ramsay opened up about his past relationship with Angelica Panganiban.
The former couple — who had been together for six years before their breakup in 2012 — have rarely discussed their romance in interviews. And for the first time, Derek bared his feelings as he candidly talked about the "Love or Money" actress in an interview with G3 San Diego for Mega magazine.
“We were introduced and we’re from totally different worlds,” he revealed.
At that time, Derek was just kickstarting his acting career while Angelica has long been a household name in showbiz.
“And I guess that was what drew me to her. I was like, ‘Wow, this is something new! And this is something I’ve never experienced!’ And we had a lot of great memories. We traveled the world together,” he said of Angelica.
It was in early 2012 when rumors about Derek and Angelica's breakup circulated. Come May, the couple confirmed that they have indeed parted ways.
Even though they broke up, Derek said that he treasures everything he learned from his six-year relationship..
“Angelica taught me so much,” he said. “She’s a very strong woman. She went through a lot in her life. Being in showbiz at such a young age, being the breadwinner. I admired that about her, bata pa lang she supported na her family. So that was something that really attracted me to her,” he added.
Following their split, Derek dated his "No Other Woman" co-star Cristine Reyes for a month, model Joanne Villablanca for six years, and actress Andrea Torres for a year.
He recently confirmed his relationship with actress Ellen Adarna.
Angelica, on the other hand, dated John Lloyd Cruz for nearly four years before their breakup in 2016. In January this year, Angelica introduced her non-showbiz boyfriend Gregg Homan.
