MANILA, Philippines - Chen Sarte remains good friends with musician Aiza Seguerra even after the end of their seven-year relationship.
"You can say that [we're friends]. I'm not closing any doors," she told PEP in a recent interview.
News about their split broke out last month, with Chen herself confirming it through a TV interview. She, however, declined to divulge the reason for the split, only noting that it was a mutual decision.
She and Aiza don't have as much communication now, though, due to their respective busy schedules.
"I'm also starting this little management thing and production so medyo walang time," said Chen, who handles the career of newly launched artist Cathy Go.
Chen pointed out that she will continue to represent Aiza for some projects.
"But management wise, hindi naman. She's the boss of herself. I still book projects for her but I coordinate with her manager Annabelle Regalado," said she.
While Chen seemed to have put her love life on the back seat (at least for now), Aiza purportedly has found a new love in the person of "Protégé: The Battle for the Big Break" winner Krizza Neri. Rumors about their supposed special bond cropped up after Aiza and Krizza exchanged I love you's on Twitter.
Chen would rather not comment on the matter, saying, "Wala po akong masabi kasi hindi po ako sila."
Nevertheless, she added, "I hope she's happy whatever it is."
Chen herself is "trying to move on and start again."
"As co-worker, it's easy naman kasi it's a professional decision and it's, you know, it's easy to move on. Like I said before, ang dami niyang naituro sa akin in this industry..." she related.
