Karla Estrada refuted claims made by veteran entertainment columnist Cristy Fermin that she confirmed her son Daniel Padilla’s breakup with longtime girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo.
Reposting an art card posted by Kami.com, Karla strongly contradicted Fermin’s remarks that Daniel and Kathryn’s relationship is already really over.
“Kami po maninindigan kaming tatlo na hiwalay na po talaga sina Daniel Padilla at si Kathryn Bernardo. Umamin na po si Karla Estrada sa isa niyang kaibigan na wala na, tapos na,” Fermin was quoted as saying in her showbiz talk show CristyFerMinute on One PH.
“Ito po ay walang katotohanan. Kailan man ay hindi ko pang hihimasukan o pinangungunahan ang personal na buhay ng mga anak ko,” said Karla, referring to Daniel and Kathryn.
Fermin also alleged that Daniel and Kathryn have been separated for several months now.
“Ang tanong, kailan ito ipinanganak itong paghihiwalay na ito. Ang sabi ng aking source, bilangin ninyo yung panahon na si Kathryn ay ibang-iba na ang gayak. Nagpapakita na ng skin, nagpapaseksi.
“So kung bibilangin natin ‘yun, noon pa ay tapos na… Buwan na ang bibilangin natin.”
While taking into consideration that the couple might be taking some time off, Fermin claimed that it was Karla who confirmed Daniel and Kathryn’s alleged split.
“Malay naman natin, kung magpapahinga lang sila ng ilang panahon, at isang araw ay magigising sila na kailangan pa rin nila ang isa’t isa.”
“Pero sa ngayon, kailangan niyo pong tanggapin na tapos na ang kanilang relasyon. Ang kanilang love team nandiyan pa rin, pero ‘yung puntong personal, tapos na ‘yun. At iyan naman po ay nanggaling sa bibig mismo ng ina ni Daniel Padilla,” Fermin stated.
Although the couple was spotted on a recent sighting together, rumors are still rife that they have called it quits.
Daniel, however, said in an apparent message to their fanbase, KathNiel, that all is well and that he’ll take care of everything. The two have yet to officially address the speculations.
