"They're okay. They've decided to be mature about it and they don't want to give the family hard time also. She's a part of the family, but she and I have discussed as well that she knows that he's my brother, he knows that she's my ‘ate.’“

"They've [Gab and Tricia]] never put me in a position where I have to choose between the two of them," she added.
Kiana is present in both Gab and Tricia's social media accounts, which put her in a compromising situation.
"It's hard not to take sides when you know one is hurting...but you have to remember that there are two people who are hurting."
The rookie singer said that as a family, praying for the ex-couple is the best thing they could do for now.
However, when she was asked about the involvement of her friends as the separation between Gab and Tricia, she admitted that it was not easy on her.
"Although [Gab] has told me that some that has come out isn't true, it's been exaggerated. That I know, because some of the girls that were put into that list were my friends. And there are tweets that I saw, like, 'Lauren Reid was spotted with Gab and yada yada…’ People don't know that I was there with Lauren, and it was a group outing.
It's tough, kasi those people who know the least have the most to say talaga. But, you know, you just have to be strong enough to let it face you.”
It has been a month since Tricia dropped hints of her crumbling marriage, which was caused by Gab's infidelity and money problems.
Although the latter has not been confirmed yet, the former was implied when Tricia noted that the parents of the alleged third party apologized to her.
