Kylie Verzosa wasn't able to hold her tears back as she opened up about her breakup with ex-boyfriend Jake Cuenca, whom she admitted she’s been missing until now.
In an interview with Vice Ganda on his vlog uploaded on May 30, the beauty queen-turned-actress said that she's still in the phase of processing their breakup, more than a month since they confirmed their split.
"Pina-process ko pa talaga lahat," Kylie admitted. "Process siya. Hindi siya biglaan. Syempre bago pa lang, eh, saka masakit pa rin. Minsan, especially kapag pagod ka na, hindi mahe-help na balikan. Doon ako nalulungkot pa rin," she added.
According to her, what makes the breakup even more painful was that she thought Jake is the one for her.
“Breakup siya na akala ko hindi ko na mararamdaman ever. Akala ko siya na," she said. "Akala ko hindi na ako magkakaroon ng heartbreak."
"Saka nagmahalan kami, eh. We loved each other," she stressed. "Sobrang happy kami sa relationship and sobrang grateful ako sa relationship namin, sobra."
During the interview, Vice also brought up the time Kylie teared up on "It's Showtime," where she explained that she had no one to talk to about her heartbreak that time.
"Parang nagulat kasi ako noong sinabi mo 'yung line na 'yun, kung challenge lang ba 'yun o sign. Parang swak na swak kasi 'yun sa pinagdadaanan ko noon," she told Vice. "[That day, confusing pa 'yung situation] at saka wala akong kausap, eh. Wala akong pinagsasabihan."

"Noong sinabi mo 'yung phrase na 'yun, parang may nakaintindi [sa'kin]. Parang for the first time, naramdaman ko 'yung, 'Swak 'to sa nararamdaman ko na hindi ko naman shine-share sa ibang tao.'" she said. "Fun ako, usually maingay ako, nakikipagchikahan. Pero those times, quiet lang ako. Matipid ako sa salita."
When asked if she still misses her ex, Kylie teared up before admitting, "Oo naman." She also stressed that she has no regrets about their relationship since they both grew and learned from each other.
"Naririnig ko sa ibang tao na parang sayang. Pero para kasi sa akin hindi siya sayang, eh," she said. "Natulungan namin 'yung isa't isa. Nagmahalan kami. Tulungan kami sa isa't isa. So para sa akin hindi 'yun sayang. Nag-grow kami together as individuals, so bakit siya sayang?" she maintained.
