The break-up between James Reid and Nadine Lustre took the online world by storm, prompting netizens to voice out their opinions on the matter.
One of those that reacted included singer Ericka Villongco, who was quite a hit back in 2012 when she and her sister Krissy released the hit single “12:51.”
It could be recalled that Ericka was James’ girlfriend before Nadine. The two met at Ericka’s music video shoot for her and Krissy’s cover of M2M’s “Don’t Say You Love Me” and they reportedly lasted for about 3 years.
When news of the JaDine break-up trended after its announcement last night, January 20, on the late-night talk show Tonight With Boy Abunda, Ericka took to her Instagram Stories to voice out her reaction on the matter.
In the now-deleted Instagram Story, Ericka said her private messages were flooded with questions asking if she had heard the news, with her overall response represented by a meme saying “karmas a b*tch” and “god spared me.”
Online netizens did not take kindly of Ericka’s reaction towards the trending news.

Oof here comes Ericka Villongco inserting herself again for clout about the Nadine-James-Issa issue.— Alphina (@maleedus) January 21, 2020
"Karma's a bitch" oh so now you're insinuating that Nadz deserves whatever's happening with her? Woman, stay on your doomed space of irrelevance, you're engaged for God's sake. pic.twitter.com/H58guwcj47
