Rumor has it that James Reid is dating someone, but alas, the actor-singer finally put those speculations to rest.
In a report by ABS-CBN News published today, May 31, the “Beauty and the Bestie” star shed light on his real relationship status, a couple of weeks after netizens insinuated that something is going on between him and the actor’s business partner James Thomas.
Such speculations began after a now-deleted TikTok video showed the actor-singer kissing his friend on the cheek. James has since poked fun on the netizens' reactions.
When asked if he’s single during Gold House’s inaugural Gold Gala in Los Angeles, James firmly replied, “Oh, we’re single, yes.”
During the event, James told Chris Trondsen of Pacific Rim Video Press that focusing on his career currently overtakes his interest in dating.
“I’m not really interested right now. I’ve been trying to stay single for as long as possible just because there’s a lot that I’m trying to do right now,” he explained.
After his public breakup with onscreen partner Nadine Lustre back in 2020, James said that he’s just happy to do his own thing for now.
“I got out of a four-year relationship so, you know, I’m just trying to do me, be happy being me for a while,” he said.
While James is confirmed to be single, Nadine is now in a relationship with French-Filipino businessman Christophe Bariou.
