Daria Ramirez revealed why she separated from her former husband, Joey de Leon.
In an interview with Ogie Diaz, Daria said that she was only 20 when she decided to live with Joey, who was 25 then.
According to her, while their relationship bore two children, Kempee and Cheenee de Leon, she admitted that their relationship turned bitter because she believed they were not yet ready to settle during those times.
“Hindi naggo-grow ‘yung aming relationship dala ng kabataan. Bata pa ako masyado eh. Hindi ko alam ang buhay may asawa. Hindi naman ako lumaki na sinabihan ako ng mama ko. Late na nung sinabi ng mama, actually buntis na ako noon… Hindi pumasok sa isip nila na bigla akong mag-aasawa. Hindi pa nila tanggap,” she said.
“Actually, pareho lang kami eh [Joey]. Nabigla rin ‘yung kabila, nabigla rin ‘yung pamilya ko. Hindi ko alam ‘yung mga dos and don’ts [sa pag-aasawa],” she added.
Daria said she decided to live alone but admitted that she was facing financial difficulties and relying on the help of her friends.
That’s why she decided to make a public appeal to her former partner and reminded the veteran comedian that she also became part of her life.
“Hoo, hirap in a way na lack of financial. I mean, almost everyday, iniisip ko, kanino naman kaya ako makalapit, para makabayad nito, makabayad ganun. Mga ganun. Baka naman. Sana man lang eh maramdaman mo na naging bahagi din ako ng buhay mo, kahit na kung ano nangyari nung araw, nagpatawad na naman ako sa iyo di ba. Magpatawaran na tayo. Sana naman ilagay mo sa isip mo yung tapos na yun,” she stated.
