Singer-host celebrates 26th birthday

MANILA — Nikki Gil is back in the grind as a TV host, VJ, and “ASAP” mainstay, following a brief vacation and her controversial break-up with long-time boyfriend Billy Crawford.

Gil resumed work as a regular VJ of music channel MYX on Thursday, and took to image-sharing service Instagram to express excitement about being reunited with her “family.”

“I’m back!” she said in the accompanying caption of a photo showing her striking goofy poses at the MYX studio.

On the eve of August 23, her birthday, Gil also shared an Instagram video of a “salubong” of her 26th year, as she celebrated it with colleagues from MYX.

The “Apoy sa Dagat” actress, who was inactive on social media after her separation from Crawford in July, resumed interacting with her followers last week, with a post showing a “meaningful vacay that was.”

In the past week, Gil also chronicled her return to the Sunday concert program “ASAP” by posting photos of rehearsals, her co-stars, and her latest on-stage performance.

Since her high-profile break-up in July, Gil has remained tight-lipped on the issue despite numerous reports linking Crawford to an alleged third party in the relationship, which he has repeatedly denied.

MANILA — Only a month before their separation, former couple Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford were having a “perfect day.”

The 25-year-old singer-actress shared the day through a June 20 post on image-sharing service Instagram, where she has over 335,000 followers.

The couple of almost five years are seen posing with Gil’s pet dog in the said photo, which now has over 14,000 likes.

Its caption: “Today was absolutely perfect […] got to hangout with my cousin and nephews, squeezed in a workout, got mah nails deeed, baked a cake, and had dinner by Chef Humstermeier with the fam. Plus Charlie cuddles to end the night. Life is good”

Earlier in May, on the occasion of Crawford’s 31st birthday, Gil posted a collage of photos of the “It’s Showtime” co-host, with the caption, “Happiest Birthday to my best friend, my happy thought, my dream come true @billyjoecrawford.”

“You are a blessing to everyone around you. I love you! PS These photos still make me swoon every time I see them #TheHumstermeier,” the caption said.

On Thursday, a statement released by ALV Talent Circuit, which manages the careers of the former couple, confirmed that the two have “mutually agreed to end their relationship.”

Maintaining that there was no third party in the relationship, the statement issued by talent manager Arnold Vegafria added that “we are refraining [from] issuing any other facts or statements related to the issue at this critical juncture.”

While Gil has yet to speak on the matter, Crawford on Friday said he will “answer everything next time.”
