Among Nadine Lustre’s notable characteristics is her strong personality and penchant for privacy especially when her loved ones’ welfare is concerned. But do not get her wrong. The Multimedia Princess is admittedly a soft-hearted gal especially towards her family. And not being too showy on social media is simply her means of protecting them. “I don’t always post them on social media. Parang hindi ako komportable. As much as possible, I want to keep my family private.” This way, her beloveds will be out of the public eye and will be saved from bashing. She even asked her mom not to create an Instagram account so to avoid stress from the issues thrown at her. She said that she supports and defends them the best way she could.
In a TWBA interview first aired on March 2019, Nadine told Boy Abunda that she can remain silent for her own sake but she will not hesitate to fight back once her loved ones are being attacked. “Parang hindi ko kayang pigilan ‘yung sarili ko ‘pag sila na ‘yung naaagrabyado. It’s okay if it’s me but if it’s the people I love, parang hindi ko kayang palampasin,” she admitted.
Just last year, Nadine had nothing but sweet words for her boyfriend, now ex, James Reid. At that time, Nadine even got misty eyed as she expressed how James helped her recover from all the pain she went through and become a better version of herself. James used to be her everything. She felt a sting of sadness and almost shed tears as she imagined how her life would be different without him. But February this year, a few days before their supposed fourth anniversary as a couple, JaDine announced their shocking breakup.
Despite the split-up, it is safe to say that the ex-lovers were good for each other. Nadine was very vocal on how James influenced her into becoming wiser and more mature, a woman who no longer feels scared when problems arise. She has become a lot logical, as how she put it. As a couple, they didn’t like talking about the past or prying on each other’s whereabouts; at peace with their devotion towards one another.
