Daniel Padilla says he’s not yet ready for new love
Daniel Padilla affirmed that he’s not yet looking for a new love as he stressed that he intends to focus on his career.
During his TV patrol interview after his contract signing with ABS-CBN on Monday, Feb. 12, the actor was asked if he was ready for a new love life following his breakup with long-term girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo last year.
“Definitely not. Love for human nature, ‘yun ang hinahanap ko,” he said.
“Ayoko na munang isipin ‘yun. Trabaho muna ako. Wala muna akong love life,” he added.
With Valentine’s Day less than a day away, Padilla shared that he would just stay home, given his siblings have their own dates, “Iniisip ko nga ‘yung mga kapatid ko, nakalimutan ko parang may mga date na rin sila,”
When asked how he is coping these days, Padilla underscored that he has been spending a lot of time with his family, making him realize a few life lessons.
“I’m good. I found a new life. Parang I just came back to my roots. ‘Yung mga moments na nandoon ‘yung mga kapatid ko. And ‘yung mga lessons in life diba, ang dami mong nakukuha kung saan-saan,”
Given the series of controversies he got tangled up in last year, with cheating allegations involving different women, the “Hows of Us” actor said he doesn’t “appreciate” when people are trying to put their noses in his personal life.
“Sa lahat ng nangyari ayoko nang makisabay, saka parang out ako sa ganiyan. Saka ‘yung nangyari, it’s very personal to me. And I don’t appreciate na ang daming nag-chi-chip in, but that’s how it goes, it’s show biz baby,” he said.
The 28-year-old actor remarked that at the lowest point of his life, he was able to see who his “real friends” are.
“Itong time na ‘to, ang dami ring nagpakilala. That’s beautiful at least, talagang eye-opening moment. Kaya ‘yung mga totoong nandiyan, ang sarap kasama,” Padilla declared.
