- He also admitted that their relationship was over before Catriona was crowned Miss Universe, but they did not make it official right after the competition.
In one of the interviews that Catriona Gray was a guest, she was asked to choose between love and the Miss Universe crown, and she chose the crown. The interview also confirmed her break up with his boyfriend, Clint Bondad.
Finally, Clint speaks on details about their break up. He used Instagram to express his side, after the interview of Catriona Gray on ‘TWBA.’ He started his post by saying that he agreed to everything that was shared during Cat’s interview and he thinks that this ended a chapter of their lives.
“Because it has become more practical to clear things up, instead of having people approach me like zombies with puppy eyes or letting certain questions linger around for too long,” he said.
He also gave comments on Catriona choosing the crown over love.
“Of course its ‘Crown’! The career of a beauty queen is so different in many ways to that of other career paths and even more extreme (than) that of an actor or (public) figure. Incomparable. It’s a winner takes all situation and it kick-starts everything into motion with an explosion, but on top of it all, it’s compressed into a single year of reign,” Clint explained.
He also admitted that their relationship was over before Catriona was crowned Miss Universe, but they did not make it official right after the competition.
“I was massively depressed for a long time and I literally blamed anything and everyone except our relationship… I wouldn’t even allow it in the realm of possibilities. But my protective personality and shielding of the relationship made me unable to see things clear and rational. It became counterproductive,” he explained.
“Love truly can make you blind sometimes and make you do dumb stuff… No matter how smart you think you are. I felt like I had to do things that Cat never asked me to do and stopped things that I loved doing and pursuing and even started feeling guilty for simply enjoying life. I ended up completely draining myself and became so exhausted that at the end there was little left of who I once was,” he shared.
He said he failed, and not easy for him to accept failure.
“I failed, because the control was always with me all along. I just realized it too late. She knew I would rather go through complete death of my own persona than accept failure.”
Clint said that Catriona as the new Miss Universe is the silver lining of their ended relationship.
“What would have really broken my heart would have been not seeing that crown on her head. I am glad things happened the way they did,” he said.
“Sure, maybe things could have been a bit different but the outcome would have been different too. But it’s like the weather. If it rains, you simply remind yourself that water is life, then you take the umbrella and go out anyway,” he added.
“I actually believe that this is the best ever that could have happened for both of us.” He said nobody should take the blame for things that simply happen.
He ended his post saying “the best Miss Universe in history.”
After six years of being a couple, they have now officially split up but still have respect of what they had.
