I won’t be entertaining questions regarding this anymore. Thank you for understanding," she captioned the post sharing old photo of her and Padilla.

“I’m well aware of the rumors and speculations going around, and as hard as it is to put everything into words, I want you to hear it straight from me: It’s true that Deej and I have decided to part ways," Bernardo wrote.

Reflecting on their shared history, Bernardo added, “He knew me more than anyone else. He was my first boyfriend. He was my comfort zone. He was my person. I will always have love for him.”

Bernardo also thanked their fans for the support, and asked them to avoid taking sides.

"Kathniels, we know you are hurting, and trust me, this also hurts us both more than you can imagine. The last thing we want is for this family to break apart with everyone taking sides --please don't," she said.

She also expressed her gratitude to Padilla, who she said gave her "11 beautiful years".

Padilla, for his part, also shared an old photo of him and Bernardo and responded with a statement.

"Sa mundo, buhay at sa limitadong oras na tayo ay nandito. Isang malaking biyaya ang pagmamahal. Ang mahalin ka. At mahalin mo," he wrote on Instagram.

"Our lives may drift away, but our love will still ride that tide," Padilla added.

"Kathniels, maraming salamat sa pagmamahal ninyo. Maraming salamat sa napakagandang pinagsamahan natin. Hinding hindi namin ipagpapalit at hindi makukumpara kahit anong pang gawing nila. Hinding hindi nila pwedeng sirain 'yun. This is beyond show business. Pamilya kayo at mga kaibigan. Magiging mahirap pero kailangan natin yakapin ang kinabukasan," Padilla wrote.

Bernardo and Padilla first worked together in the youth-oriented program Growing Up, which aired from September 2011 to February 2012. Their loveteam Kathniel blossomed in 2012 during the run of top-rating primetime series 'Princess and I'.

Among the blockbuster movies of KathNiel were She’s Dating the Gangster (2014) and The Hows of Us (2018). Their last project together was the Netflix and TV series '2 Good 2 Be True'.
