Nikki Gil Dishes Out Reason Behind Her Breakup with Billy Crawford

The Maria Mercedes star tells all in a Cosmopolitan interview.

When news that Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford had split first broke out, speculations about their breakup spread like wildfire. There was talk of a third party, and Billy was linked to Kapamilya stars Andi Eigenmann and Coleen Garcia—both of whom denied any romantic involvement with the singer-TV host.

Still, for the most part, the ex-couple kept the details of their separation hush-hush. 
It was only during a recent interview published in Cosmopolitan's December 2013 issue that Nikki set the record straight and talked about what really ended the relationship, reports

“There were always a lot of warnings, but I chose to ignore them—I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that it could be done to me,” Nikki said in the magazine interview, referring to Billy's alleged cheating.

“I’d ask him, ‘Why were you [at this place]?’ Then I’d back off and say, ‘Never mind, I was just asking.’”

When the truth finally came out, Nikki said that she couldn't believe it.

“I’m a woman and I protect what’s mine, I don’t touch what’s not mine. If I were the kind of girl [who’d steal a boyfriend], I’d understand completely, but I cherish those things,” she added.

The Maria Mercedes actress is known for wearing a purity ring given to her by her mother in 2008—a symbol that she would wait until marriage before having sex. She claimed that Billy didn’t seem to have any problems waiting.

“He’d always say, ‘Push! I’m proud of you.’”

“And I’m like, ‘Wow, you’re so understanding naman.’ Yun pala, e, dot… dot… dot!”

Despite the said betrayal, reports that Nikki is grateful to have gotten out of the relationship before it was too late.

“The scary thing, knowing what I know now, is I would have said yes to his insincere offers of marriage! I was made to believe I was making up these things in my head—I thought we were just plateau-ing.”

Nikki is currently trying to move on with her life. From here on, there is nowhere else to go but up.

“My arms are open wide, catching all the good karma coming my way,” she concluded.
