James: “THE REALEST”

Back in June 2020, James and Nadine were featured in a joint interview for MYX Philippines, the first time they’ve been on screen since the breakup. They talked about their MYX Awards 2020 nominations and future projects and they seemed pretty comfortable with each other. Seeing them together in an interview was already a win, especially when they said they want to be remembered as “the realest” while sporting matching jade necklaces.

In case you didn’t know, James and Nadine are dog parents to a squishy, cuddly, adorable Corgi named Calcifer. During the MYX interview they were asked about where Cal lives and the ex-couple took a while to answer before Nadine awkwardly blurted “He’s with meee.” And maybe we’re reading too much into it but James was definitely smirking. Why? JaDine sleuths believe that Calcifer spends equal time in both his parent’s houses that it’s difficult to say whom permanently lives with.
This has even led to the speculation that JaDine is somehow living together again. Proof?
Look at James’ living room. It has minimal furniture and a couple of plants but what stands out the most is his red couch and Persian rug. Interestingly enough, one of Nadine’s Instagram stories posted on May 2020 had a similar background…
Also back in May 2020, showbiz host DJ Jhai Ho mentioned that a “reliable source” confirmed JaDine were back together. It fanned the flame to the growing spark of a comeback in the hearts of fans everywhere. Listen to the discussion at the 19:20 mark of the video above.
On James’ birthday, Nadine posted a black and white photo of them with a sapling emoji which JaDine fans choose to believe meant new beginnings. On Nadine’s birthday, James posted a promo for her debut album Wildest Dreams. And us? We’re just here consumed by kilig over the fact that these supposed exes still post sweet things for each other.
If it was a bad breakup, their respective social media accounts would’ve been purged of any evidence they were together. But let’s say the breakup was amicable (which it was very much so), they would have kept their distance at least for some time out of respect for each other. But it seemed like they never truly separated. Sure, they reportedly sold their Quezon City house, but they’ve often been seen with each other since January 2020. Whether it’s attending a party in BGC or eating at a restaurant in Katipunan, they seemed completely at ease with one another.
And James, CMM’s head, has been super supportive of her all throughout. Just scroll through his Instagram and Twitter, it’s like a Nadine fan page from all the promotions he posts. We’re also counting it as a huge sign that Nadine was comfortable enough to write and produce personal songs with who was supposed to be an ex-lover. In conclusion, they’re back together.

The latest news that concludes our list of subtle hints is the barkada hike the pair went on. It seems to be a recurring theme – JaDine and nature – and we’re living for it. James himself posted about it on his Instagram, although we didn’t get selfies with him and Nadine.
This February 2021, JaDine is supposed to celebrate their fifth year together. It’s enough to know that the pair remain good friends, but the signs tell us that they’re so much more than that. We hope the rumors are true!
