Dennis Trillo has admitted that he and his girlfriend, actress Bianca King, have broken up after about a year of being together. This was revealed after PEP.ph asked Dennis about the state of their relationship.
“Tahimik yung lovelife ko ngayon, e, sobrang tahimik,” he was quoted in the article. “Actually, medyo lie low kami talaga ngayon…hindi kami masyadong madalas magkita ngayon (My lovelife right now is quiet, very quiet. Actually, we’re lying low right now… we don’t see each other often anymore.).”
When asked for the reason why they chose to “lie low,” Dennis said it was because they were both busy with work. “Well, busy kasi kami pareho rin sa trabaho, e,” he said. “Siya, gusto ko ring ma-maximize niya nang husto 'yung mga opportunities na dumadating sa kanya ngayon. Gusto kong makapag-focus siya dun. Ako rin, sa akin 'ganun [din], dahil sobrang busy din sa trabaho… So, naiisip lang namin na bigyan namin ng time 'yung mga priorities namin, lalo na sa trabaho (Well, we’re both busy with work. I also want her to maximize the opportunities coming her way right now. I want her to focus on that. The same thing goes for me as well, because I’m also very busy with work… So we just decided to allot more time for our priorities, especially for our jobs.).”
Dennis also said that it was a mutual decision to “lie low,” and he reassured PEP.ph that though he hasn’t seen Bianca in three weeks, they still parted on amicable terms. As for being lonely on Christmas, the actor says that the love of his family will be enough to make him happy this season.
“Hindi naman magiging malungkot ang Pasko dahil sa ano, e… hindi naman puro lovelife lang ang Pasko, di ba? Sa akin, ang Pasko talaga para sa pamilya naman ‘yan,” he said. “Siguro 'yung mga pagmamahal e manggagaling na sa pamilya muna. Okay na, sapat na sa akin 'yun, enough na para maging masaya ako (My Christmas won’t be lonely because… Christmas doesn’t revolve around lovelife alone, right? For me, Christmas is really for the family. The love I’ll receive will come from my family. That’s okay, that’s enough to make me happy.).”
