It seems that sometimes, time may not heal all wounds as Claudine evidently feels it as she reminisces about her past with ex-BF Rico Yan, who died three weeks after they broke up.
The actress was strolling with her kids in the location where the final scene of the hit movie “Got To Believe” was shot, when Claudine repeatedly talked about memories as tears flowed from her eyes.
“So dito yung ending ng Got To Believe na hindi naming alam kung papano o kung ano ang ending. So naisip na lang naming na mag-kiss na lang hanggang sa… Hanggang sa dulo ng hanggan. So dito yun,” Claudine revealed.
The actress then slipped in a pensive state, perhaps reminiscing her life back then with BF Rico.
“Siyempre nakaka… Memories… Ilang years ago… Nineteen years ago, right here,” Claudine said while trying hard to hold back tears.
Both played starring role in the movie and the final scene was their wedding, shot in the location where Clau and her kids chose to stroll.
Rico and Claudine were real-life sweethearts, though they broke up just days after their hit movie was released.
Three weeks after that, Rico took a vacation along with friends at Dos Palmas resort in Palawan. As it turned out, it was his last.
The actor died in his sleep, with doctors declaring the cause as hemorrhagic pancreatitis, or in the local vernacular, “bangungot.”
After that, Claudine’s heart seemed to be frozen in time and though she got married later, she never misses to greet Rico everytime it’s the actor’s birthday.
