Yassi Pressman has set the record straight on the controversy surrounding her and her alleged *enabler* attitude towards her sister Issa Pressman, who recently hard-launched her relationship with James Reid.
To keep you up to speed, netizens flocked the actress with negative comments and unearthed her old post defending Issa from whispers that she cheated with James on the latter’s ex-girlfriend Nadine Lustre in 2020. To clear the air, James already defended Issa from the bashers and even said he’s the “happiest he’s ever been” with her, saying that the cheating rumors in the past were just that—rumors.
In a recent conference for her upcoming series Kurdapya, Yassi broke her silence and finally aired her side. “Sige po para tapos na po ha. Isang beses ko lang po 'tong sasabihin. Wala pong problema,” she said.
She also shared that she and Nadine are *still friends* and that the Cosmo March cover star even comforted her when the bashers bombarded her about the issue. “She said, 'Sorry to hear that. I hope you are feeling better.'”
“Kami po ni Nadine, okay po kami. Okay rin po 'yung buong pamilya namin. At siyempre po, bago po nag-public ang lahat, lahat po naasikaso in private. So, lahat po walang problema.”
“Me and Nadine are cool, we're friends. We've been friends ever since we were kids kaya naman, lahat po okay po. Tsaka ilang taon na rin po. Kaya ayon, sana everybody, let everyone be happy.”
She also revealed that even she was *shocked* when she found out about Issa’s romance with James. “Nagulat din po ako. Sabay-sabay po tayo. Pero nung sinabi po sa 'kin 'yun recently, hinayaan ko na lang po nag mag-desisyon 'yung mga tao. They’re old enough to make their own decision naman po. Lahat po ng tao may choice. At kung walang ibang tao naming tinatapakan, feeling ko wala naman pong problema.”
