«I don’t want to start anything. I don’t want to feed anything. I really want this all to end and for everyone to move on and do whatever makes them happy,» Berríos said.


“I was in a relationship for two years, it was a good relationship, it was healthy. And towards the end, we had ‘we just weren’t working out’ conversations. So when we split up in January, that’s the reason.»

And I was like, ‘That’s my boyfriend. , but that’s not me.’ And my sister called me that morning because she was in the same place where it had happened, she called me and told me what was happening.»

«But honestly, I was just a shell of a human being. I was so hurt. I was so, so confused. I didn’t know how to handle the situation, but I was sure it wasn’t to connect and start talking. — about people I still don’t think that’s the right solution. I think my perspective is more to just tell my story and not try to villainize anybody.»

Culpo has not responded on social networks to Berríos’s latest statements.
