KC admitted that her relationship with Piolo has ended, but refused to reveal the reason why.

“May mga hinahanap ako na napakabasic lang na hanapin ng isang babae sa isang boyfriend, sa isang lalake. Ayoko nang pumunta sa details kasi ayaw kong siraan sya,” KC said.

KC believes both of them loved each other in spite of predicaments. KC felt she may not be the one Piolo needs in his life, but she declined to comment if there was a third-party involved.

“Naniniwala naman ako na pag sinasabi ni PJ na minahal niya ako. Naniniwala naman ako na meron namang katotohanan iyon. Pero, masakit man sabihin, hindi ako yung, siguro nag-fail din ako dahil hindi ako yung kailangan niya sa buhay niya, or hindi ako yung hinahanap niya sa buhay niya...and hindi, hindi ko mabigay sa kanya yung kailangan niya” she said.
