"It’s true that we have split up, but not for all the reasons that are being spread on the tabloids and social media, but because after quiet and mature conversations, we decided to focus on ourselves not only for our careers but more for our personal growth as we are still young and we want to achieve as much as we can," the statement reads.
Despite their breakup, James and Nadine assured fans that they are still friends and will continue collaborating on music projects. The two also thanked the Jadine fans for their support. “We agreed that going separate ways was best for both of us. We are in good terms, are still really good friends and will continue to work with each other especially when it comes to music. Thank you for all the JaDine fans for their undying support and we hope you continue to support us now and in the future. We shall forever be grateful to them for their love and understanding. Thank you.”
James and Nadine first worked together in his music video "Alam Niya Ba" before being paired in the surprise box office hit Diary ng Panget. They officially became a couple in 2016 while working on the teleserye On The Wings Of Love.
