Except that it’s not a good morning for JaDine fans everywhere.
Last night, James Reid and Nadine Lustre confirmed that they have, in fact, officially split. In a joint statement issued via Tonight with Boy Abunda, it reasoned that they broke up “to focus on ourselves” and “our personal growth.” This statement comes a few weeks after rumors of the couple going their separate ways circulated online.
JaDine fans are in various stages of unbelief and grief. This was the couple who wormed into everyone’s hearts when they starred in Diary ng Panget back in 2014 and became a reel-to-real couple in 2016. This was the couple who taught all the other couples out there how to take aesthetic photos and dress up properly for Halloween parties. It’s only weeks until they celebrate their supposed fourth year together (February 11) but we have to accept that some things just aren’t meant to be.
Cry with us?
JaDine fans will relate

This was done when they were still together but Nadine’s sincerity feels like maybe they were on the rocks even back then. But she still was convinced that even if they break up, James will always have a place in her heart.
We watched JaDine grow
For years and years, I have stanned Jadine so hard, defended their names, watched all their teleseryes and movies, heard their music, and now, waking up and hearing their breakup, broke my heart, too. But perhaps, their loveteam might be signing off but my Jadine heart will never

2014 – PARTNERS IN CRIME
2015 – JUST FRIENDS
2016 – TEAM REEL TO TEAM REAL
2020 – EX LOVERS

What most people love about James and Nadine’s relationship is that they started out as true friends before gradually seeing each other in a romantic light. It’s like watching your barkada slowly fall in love when they swore they’ll never have feelings for each other. AND NOW WE’RE JUST SAD POTATOES.
The reality is people grow tired
Love is not just a word, a feeling, for it takes a lot of sacrifices, so i can’t blame the both of you, tao lang kayu napapagod, but if right time will come i hope your eyes will be open to reality, for love will always find it ways -Jadine is signing off pic.twitter.com/yjlaAjF8nw

It’s just January but we’ve already been bombarded with breakups. First it was Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler and now it’s James and Nadine. Now it’s up to us to protect LizQuen and KathNiel at all costs!
The fandom that will never be the same
Shoutout to all the friends Ive had in my fangirling journey with JaDine. Thank you for all the memories and the genuine friendship. ILY all. Magkaibigan pa rin tayo hanggang dulo

Nasa acceptance stage na ako.
Basta guys, JaDine just broke up. It is not the end. They work for each other (James to Digistar and Nadine to Careless). So it is not yet the end. Remember that.
May pag-asa pa charot but remember kinaya natin ang 2015 so kakayanin din natin to.

Loyal JaDine fans were probably the most distraught online. Don’t worry, we can still continue to support their solo careers (all the while hoping that one day they find their way to each other’s arms once again).
The life lessons from this breakup
ang breakup ng jadine ay sign talaga na self love muna ako, im still young and i want to achieve as much as i want. FOCUS FIRST ON MY PERSONAL GROWTH.
— mark geronimo (@markgeronimo_) January 20, 2020
And I gotta insert this one here:
I think Jadine’s break-up is a big lesson for all of us. Na inuuna natin makipag chismisan kaysa matulog.

Sad hours: open
jadine split up, you know what that means,, WE CAN NOW WATCH NEVER NOT LOVE YOU MAS MASAKIT VERSION

Watching OTWOL and Never Not Love You will never be the same! But being the mature fans that we are, we have to trust that James and Nadine know what’s best for each other. Besides, we don’t know what happens behind closed doors. If they’re happy apart, who are we, mere netizens, to stop them?
Thank you, James and Nadine, for showing us what it’s like to be in love. Until next time.

What do you think of this breakup? Which other celebrity couples should we form a prayer circle for?
