“We agreed that going separate ways was best for both of us. We are in [sic] good terms and are still really good friends and will continue to work with each other especially when it comes to music. Thank you for all the JaDine fans for their undying support and we hope you continue to support us now and in the future. We shall forever be grateful to them for their love and understanding. Thank you.”

Their break-up literally made me in tears tho my heart and my mind knew that they just do it for the sake of James' upcoming serye with Nancy just like what they did to Kathniel.

For years and years, I have stanned Jadine so hard, defended their names, watched all their teleseryes and movies, heard their music, and now, waking up and hearing their breakup, broke my heart, too. But perhaps, their loveteam might be signing off but my Jadine heart will never

Not actually a fan of JaDine but it hurts me seeing this couple splitting up. I mean i don’t know why i’m affected but their break up makes me really sad. They broke up for the betterment of their career and also they have decided to go on separate ways for “personal growth”….. pic.twitter.com/d5ftmE7yIX

Maybe the reason why the breakup of Jadine is so painful is because they became the definition of love and an almost perfect relationship. They made everyone believe that forever is possible, now is it possible?#JaDineNoMore pic.twitter.com/lr58qH6eeB

Rumors about James and Nadine’s breakup came up late last year after some reports claimed that the actress already left their shared home in Quezon City.
The two Kapamilya stars were launched in the movie Diary ng Panget in 2014 which skyrocketed them to stardom as a loveteam. The former couple admitted their relationship in February 2016 and would have celebrated their 4th anniversary in the same month this year.
