Clint Bondad breaks silence about split with Catriona Gray

Clint Bondad took to Instagram to spill some details about his breakup with Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.

In a two-part Instagram post, Bondad broke his silence and revealed some of the reasons why he and Gray ended their six-year relationship.

It can be recalled that Gray first confirmed the rumors in an interview with Boy Abunda saying that they called it quits after they outgrew each other.

For his part, Bondad said that he agrees with everything that Gray said in the interview adding that he is the one to blame for their breakup.

“Truthfully, this will make things so much easier for both of us professionally. I agree with everything that was mentioned in the interview.

“I am just personally closing this chapter of our lives because it has become more practical to clear things up instead of having people approach me like zombies with puppy eyes or letting certain questions linger around for too long,” he said.

Bondad said that he understands why Gray chose the crown over their relationship since her career now is all about “urgent priorities”.

He also clarified that they broke up even before the Miss Universe pageant. However, they’ve decided to officially end their relationship after Gray was crowned.

Bondad also said that it was him who ended the relationship and he blames himself for the outcome.

He said that he became overly dependent on Gray up to the point that he has forgotten his other priorities in life. Bondad added that his relationship has caused him to stop pursuing what he wants to do in his life. Nevertheless, he said that everything happened the way it should be.

He ended his post by saying that even though they ended their relationship, their “silver lining” is the fact that Gray was able to get the crown and live her dreams.

Part 1 of 2 Okay, hope you watched the videos first! ? I am actually very glad that the TWBA interview happened… I had a bit of a laugh cause it happened while I was on vacation, almost making me spill my drink at the pool when notifications came in ? Guess who was sober instantly! Bahaha Truthfully, this will make things so much easier for both of us professionally. I agree with everything that was mentioned in the interview. I am just personally closing this chapter of our lives because it has become more practical to clear things up instead of having people approach me like zombies with puppy eyes or letting certain questions linger around for too long ? so let’s set the record straight and have a great time: 1. Crown or love (life)? Everyone knows that it’s a trick question. Of course its “Crown”! The career of a beauty queen is so different in many ways to that of other career paths and even more extreme then that of an actor or puplic figure. Incomparable. Its a winner takes all situation and it kick starts everything into motion with an explosion, but on top of it all it’s compressed into a single year of reign. It’s the equivalent of sitting in a burning house and someone asking you, “Finish your chamomile tea or get your sweet ass out of here ASAP?!” It’s not a question about personal preference but urgent priority! 2. Timeline of the break up? It’s correct that the relationship was over the way we used to have it before the coronation. But we didn’t make it official in private until after the coronation. However it was actually me who eventually and actively pushed to make it official. 3. Who’s fault was it? I was alway fascinated with Cat…

Part 2 of 2 3. Who’s fault was it? I was alway fascinated with Cat in a way because we are so similar in many ways but in other ways we are absolute polar opposites. However the crazy thing is that she knows what is better for me better than myself. I was massively depressed for a long time and I literally blamed anything and everyone except our relationship… I wouldn’t even allow it in the realm of possibilities. But my protective personality and shielding of the relationship made me unable to see things clear and rational. It became counterproductive. Love truly can make you blind sometimes and make you do dumb stuff… No matter how smart you think you are. I felt like I had to do things that Cat never asked me to do and stopped things that I loved doing and persuing and even started feeling guilty for simply enjoying life. I ended up completely draining myself and became so exhausted that at the end there was little left of who I once was. But if Cat did anything then it’s save me from myself. I am truly the only one who can be blamed for anything and everything. I failed, because the control was always with me all along. I just realized it too late. She knew I would rather go through complete death of my own persona then accept failure… 4. Silver lining? What would have really broken my heart would have been not seeing that crown on her head. I am glad things happened the way they did. Sure, maybe things could have been a bit different if the outcome would have been different too. But it’s like the weather. If it rains you simply remind yourself that water is life, then you take the umbrella and go out anyway. Nobody can be blamed for things that simply happen and I actually believe that this is the best ever that could have happened for both of us. She will go down as the best Miss Universe in History. Told you guys I wasn’t biased before. If I can say it now then you know I was simply always stating facts and facts never change.
