KathNiel fans will not be seeing much projects from their favorite love team this year.
In an open letter which Preview magazine published online on Tuesday, Kathryn Bernardo revealed that she and her real-life beau Daniel Padilla have agreed not to do any projects together for 2019.
“Of course, there’s no way I can talk about growth without mentioning DJ because he’s a big part of what makes me who I am today. He’s played a crucial role in helping me become not only a better actress but also a better person,” Kathryn stated.
She then proceeded on revealing: “Some of you might already be aware of this, but late last year, we made a mutual decision to not accept projects together this 2019.”
Despite admitting that it will be tough for the both of them, Bernardo assured their supporters that “we really gave it some thought, and while there’s nothing we want more than to make you happy, we’d appreciate if you can give us this year to pursue our individual growth this time around.”
The open letter also came after the announcement of Beranrdo and Alden Richard’s film that will be directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.
“Needless to say, DJ and I will still be here; I will always have his back in the same way that I know he always has mine. It’s just that, in the meantime, we want to support each other off-cam,” she added.
“I’ve seen stars rise and fall, and more often than not, the greatest tragedy is when they choose to live in a box,” she said.
