At a recent episode of ABS-CBN’s Tonight with Boy Abunda, basketball player Kiefer Ravena shared how his controversies affected his relationship with girlfriend Alyssa Valdez.
He shared that of course it had affected the relationship and he did get scared that Alyssa would break up with him.
Kiefer stated how lucky he is to have her as his girlfriend that even if so many things happened, she never left his side. There are scars but she never walked away.
“Natakot, tito. Di ko man naisip kung pano ko ie-explain … Siguro pag love mo Tito Boy parang handa ka namang harapin kung ano yung consequence ng sa ginawa ko eh.
But I was very fortunate to have her as my girlfriend and to be honest, she really never left my side even after that. May scars, trust was broken, ang hirap tignan sa mata, and ang hirap mag explain everyday but at the same time, she also sacrificed a lot because she could’ve easily walked away.
But she never did and for that I think you know you have a keeper. You know you have someone who you can spend time with for the rest of your life.”
Regarding his issue with FIBA, he stated that he didn’t intend to do that and Alyssa is always there to give encouraging words to him.
Kilala niyon naman ako Tito Boy eh hindi ko naman intensyon gawin yun and she would always defend me and say encouraging words for me na alam niya rin kung ano yung nawala sakin na ang basketball isa sa pinaka nakakapag-pakalma, nakakapag bigay ng sanity sakin and it’s my sanctuary.
Last June 29, Kiefer posted a photo of Alyssa on Instagram along with a heartfelt birthday greeting for her.
