Kim Jones Jericho Rosales, Jericho Rosales was ready to quit showbiz and leave for New York when he met Kim Jones, who is now his girlfriend for more than a year.
In an interview on the late-night talk show “Martin Late @ Night” aired Friday, the 33-year-old actor said he was introduced to Jones, an Australian national, by a common friend.
At the time, Rosales said he had already set his mind to leave the Philippines, citing struggles in his personal life and career.
“That was the time when I wanted to give up already, when I wanted to move to New York, that was before signing up with ABS-CBN … and then I met Kim,” he said.
Jones, a commercial model and TV host, in an earlier interview said her first meeting with Rosales was in March 2011. She said she didn’t know that she was being set up with a popular actor.
It wasn’t until two months later when they met again, according to Jones.
The lifestyle show host shared that Rosales eventually won her over through their shared passion for sports and his sense of humor.
They became a couple in October 2011.
“It’s very seldom that you meet a person in this business na talagang parang normal person,” Rosales said of his girlfriend during his interview on “Martin Late @ Night.”
“Parang, like, whatever happens, parang walang arte sa katawan, talagang chill lang talaga, parang normal person,” he said.
During the talk show’s episode, host Martin Nievera showed a white rectangular clock with markings on its surface.
