Kim Chiu says she’s okay with Maja Salvador, who is one of her closest friends in show business, falling in love in Gerald Anderson, who is Kim’s ex-boyfriend.

“For me, I’m happy for them,” the actress was quoted by as saying during a presscon for the teleserye Ina Kapatid Anak. “Wala naman pong masama, pareho naman po silang single. Maging masaya na lang po tayo para sa kanilang dalawa (There’s nothing wrong with that, they’re both single, after all. Let’s just be happy for the two of them.)."

However, she admitted that this development made her a little sad as she did not think it was possible for her friend to fall for her ex.

Nakakalungkot lang, kasi 'yung friendship, nasayang,” she said. “Nagulat ako, e, and nabigla. Hindi ko ine-expect na mangyayari itong ganito… Hindi naman ako bitter na kung anuman ang nangyayari sa kanila. But I’m happy for them. Parang nalungkot lang ako kasi yung taong [Maja] sinabihan ko 'nung time na down ako dun sa [kay Gerald]… 'yung parang kinain niya lang 'yung sinabi niya (It made me a bit sad because I felt that our friendship was wasted. I was surprised and shocked. I wasn’t expecting that this would happen. I’m not bitter about what’s happening between them. But I’m happy for them. I was just sad because the person I talked to during the time when I was really down because of Gerald… it was like she just took back everything she said.).”

Still, she insisted that there’s no tension between her and Maja, who is her co-star in Ina Kapatid Anak. “No, we’re good, we’re okay,” she said. “I don’t care… I don’t care about them. Bahala na siya… We can work professionally and nagawa naman po namin yun. Maganda naman 'yung mga eksena namin (Let her be…We can work professionally and we’ve done that. Our scenes turned out great.). So, it’s okay.”

She also revealed that Maja had asked for her permission before letting anything progress between her and Gerald, which had her puzzled. “She asked permission to me. And then I said, bakit kailangan pang magpaalam, e, wala na ako kay Gerald. Kaya medyo naaano lang ako na ang daming tao na nagtatanong sa akin about Gerald. Bakit? Di ba, parang ang tagal na, three years na? Ang dami pang babaeng dumaan after ko (And then I said, why do you still have to ask permission from me when I’m not with Gerald anymore? That’s why I’m a bit irked because so many people are asking me about Gerald. Why do you keep asking me when it’s already been three years? There were also many girls who came after me.).”

She also asked the people who are opposing the budding romance between Maja and Gerald to stop attacking them. “Sa mga basher, tama na po (To the bashers, please stop.). Let’s just be happy for the both of them [Maja at Gerald],” she aid. “Kung nagmamahalan sila, kung anuman 'yung nararamdaman nila sa isa’t isa, maging masaya na lang po tayo (If they love each other, or whatever it is that they feel for one another, let’s just be happy for them.).”
