Yassi Pressman shares first reaction to sister Issa’s relationship reveal with James Reid


James Reid and Issa Pressman’s relationship reveal on social media also took the latter’s sister Yassi Pressman by surprise. 

“Nagulat din po ako syempre, sabay-sabay po tayo,” said Yassi, acting out her “shocked” reaction to her younger sibling’s dating issue.

“Pero nung sinabi po sa akin ‘yun recently, hinayaan ko na lang po na ang mag-decision ‘yung mga tao,” she added during a media conference for her upcoming TV5 seies “Kurdapya”. 

She continued, “They’re old enough to make their own decision naman po. Lahat po ng tao may choice. At kung wala namang ibang tao na tinatapakan, feeling ko wala naman pong problema. 

James and Issa became a hot topic on social media in the recent week after posting cozy snaps of them together from Harry Styles’ concert at the Philippine Arena. 

The two also received criticisms as cheating allegations following James’ split with ex-girlfriend Nadine Lustre in 2020 resurfaced online, with Issa being tagged as the third party. 

Yassi, at the time,came to the defense of Issa via an Instagram post showing a photo of her and Nadine, as she spoke up against the hurtful words her sister was receiving. 

Nadine and James also seemingly dismissed third party accusations after leaving comments on Yassi’s post

At present, Yassi assured that all is well between her and Nadine who sent her comforting messages after she was getting anxietywith her sister’s ongoing dating issue.

“She said ‘sorry to hear that, I hope you feeling better’, Yassi said of Nadine.

“Kami po ni Nadine, okay po kami. Okay rin po ‘yung buong pamilya namin. At siyempre po, bago po nag-public ang lahat, lahat po naasikaso in private. So, lahat po walang problema.”
