In an interview with Pep during the press conference for the movie The Girl in the Orange Dress, Jessy said she never really got a formal apology from the actor. When asked if she's forgiven him, she said: "Nag-move on na ako. May mga bagay… ikaw din kasi ang mahihirapan, e, kapagka hindi mo ni-let go yung mga ganung bagay.
“And now, okay na ako, e. May mas malala pang bagay na nangyari sa akin. And halata naman siguro na happy ako ngayon and yung mga dating nangyari, hayaan na natin yun.
(I've moved on. There are times when the burden is actually on you, if you don't let go of these things. And now, I'm ok. Worse things have happened. And it's obvious that I'm happy now. Let's let go of what happened in the past.)
Jessy said she felt disrespected by Enrique but said she wasn't sure if he was drunk or not. "Hindi ko alam. Baka stressed lang siya.” (I really don't know. He might have been stressed then.)
