Daniel Matsunaga Reveals Heart Evangelista's Parents Also Didn't Like HimDaniel Matsunaga is not surprised about the reaction of Heart Evangelista's parents on her relationship with Senator Chiz Escudero.
"I'm not surprised. I know how protective they are of Heart. I just feel bad that this is happening again to her. She doesn't deserve this," the Brazilian-Japanese model-actor said in an interview with News 5 on March 21.
He admitted he is updated with what's going on with Evangelista, his ex-girlfriend.
Matsunaga also revealed that Evangelista's parents, Cecile and Rey Ongpauco, also have him the thumbs down when he and the Kapuso actress are still together.
Evangelista and Matsunaga met on the set of GMA-7's Langit Sa Piling Mo in 2010. They soon became a couple.
When Matsunaga's parents visited the Philippines, he introduced Evangelista and her parents to them.
Evangelista's parents never approved of her relationship with Matsunaga. He said that is one of the reasons for the breakup.
“They are very protective of Heart. I understand them because it’s family. I cannot do anything, that’s why I accepted what happened between us. I have since moved on," he said.
But in her relationship with Escudero, Evangelista is seemingly fighting for it more than she did with her relationship with the Brazilian-Japanese model-actor.
Matsunaga said Evangelista is at the right age to decide for herself. She is 28 years old already.
"She is old enough to fix her life," he said.
As for Escudero, Matsunaga can see that he loves Evangelista. He wishes for them to move on from the issue.
