Jake Cuenca proud of non-showbiz Girlfriend
Jake Cuenca has finally admitted he is in a relationship with Fil-Aussie model Chanel Olive Thomas. But what makes him doubly happy is the fact that his girlfriend is non-showbiz.
In the two months that they had been officially together, Jake described his relationship with Chanel as ‘good, sobrang saya.’ He has also revealed that Chanel is already ‘sobrang close sa family ko.’
After a string of girlfriends from showbiz, Jake said being with Chanel was ‘something very different.
‘Parang iba kasi nga, parang ang tagal ko nang ‘di nagkaka-non-showbiz relationship.’
Being with someone non-showbiz allows Jake to dodge the pressures of a highly publicised relationship, which can put a heavy toll on couples. One example is Jake’s own fizzled romance with actress Melissa Ricks whom he dated more than 3 years ago.
Melissa said in an interview back in 2011 that her 2-year relationship with Jake lasted because ‘we kept it a secret. We kept it private para walang makikisawsaw, walang maninira.’
It seems Jake has finally learned a lesson by choosing someone non-showbiz, and his relationship with Chanel is something he intends to protect from the public eye because ‘May sarili kaming mundo and I value that. Inaalagaan ko talaga ang mundong yun.’
But he isn’t hiding the fact that he is happy with Chanel, as posts in his Instagram account prove. This goes to show that Jake is confident and determined to protect his relationship with Chanel from the viciousness of media.
