Want to know about Derek Ramsay’s numerous exes?

Fret not, coconut.

The actor opened up about them all in an article published on Mega Entertainment.

First off, Solenn Heussaff.

According to Derek, they were together for four years.

She was the first girl he wanted to marry noting they “clicked” on so many levels.

Sadly though, it was just “wrong timing.”

“Majority of it (our relationship) was long distance, actually. But we got through that. (When) she came back, she was a different person. And I was a different person. So we ended the relationship and we’re friends,” he shared.

Next, Angelica Panganiban.

“Angelica, taught me so much. Yeah, she’s a very strong woman. She went through a lot in her life. Being in showbiz at such a young age, being the breadwinner. I admired that about her, bata pa lang she supported na her family. So that was something that really attracted me to her.”

They were together for five years, even going on to talk about marriage.

He believes they “loved” each other “so much” that when the breakup happened, it left them both with deep scars.

Then there’s Cristine Reyes.

Derek maintained the actress was not a rebound.

“You see, I knew Cristine like the back of my hand, (and I think) she would say the same for me. We decided to jump into a relationship together, I mean she has all the qualities, but we already knew too much. We knew too much of each other,” he said, relating to the end of their one-month relationship.

Derek also discussed his six-year relationship with Joanne Villablanca.

He wanted to marry the model but they don’t see eye to eye on so many things.

“Our views on family were very different,” he said. 

“With Jo, there were moments, and it’s understandable, that she wanted to still be that, I guess, the young beautiful girl that enjoys life. And I guess I was at that stage in my life na I want to enter the next chapter of being a little bit more serious about life.”

And lastly, Andrea Torres.

He said, “I don’t want to share all the details out of respect to Andrea and her family. They’re good people. That breakup was so sad and it shocked me, shocked my parents, shocked Andrea and really shocked her family. It shocked everybody around us because we weren’t pretending to be happy. We were and everything was good. Everything was smooth sailing, actually. Given we didn’t get to see each other for a while because of the whole COVID thing,” he shared. 

Derek revealed the break up came following a tiff.

“It was nothing! I mean I don’t even call it a fight, but ended up turning into the end of the relationship,” was how he put it.

“I guess with that small, little argument, that was actually, probably only the second during the entire relationship, that brought up some red flags that for me, sabi ko I can’t go through that again. And my guards went straight back up and I know myself when my guards go back up, mahirap na siya ibaba uli. Nababa mo na eh.”

He thinks it was “very sad” for people that follow them as a couple because they all thought she was going to be “the one.”

Derek noted he thought so as well.

But love, indeed, moves in a mysterious ways.
