Nine Naphat reveals reason behind breakup with Baifern involves his mother, fans react

Following the breakup rumors, Thai stars Nine Naphat and Baifern Pimchanok have officially gone their separate ways.

After their trip to Switzerland last May, Nine issued a statement on his Instagram requesting for time to “resolve the problem” and give him time to explain.

A week later, the Thai actor confirmed the news last July 4 in a press conference that he and Baifern had broken up. He stated that they are “taking a step back to being friends,” emphasizing that they parted on good terms.

“We are not angry at each other, We only have good intentions towards one another…there is no third party for sure. I don’t regret anything that happened. In my heart, she is the best woman,” Nine said.

He also mentioned that he still has much love and respect for her and stated, “Baifern is a very sweet person. Grateful. Always puts other people’s feelings first. I’m lucky to know, be friends, and be friends with each other. It’s a very good time until today we talk sincerely and honestly to each other. I’m really hoping that we’ll be friends again, but we’re still talking.”

Nine admitted that the real reason for their breakup was his inability to balance his relationship with his mother and girlfriend. He recognizes that he could not address the loneliness of his mother while being with his girlfriend at the same time.

“What happened to many people, I feel that in the past, it was my own management, I feel that in the past, it was my own management. If you want to blame someone, blame me because I don’t balance the relationship well. I can’t tell when, but where it happened. Everything is based on love and hope for each other. Some things are not a matter of reason anymore, but if it’s based on love, hope, it’s probably a matter of time,” he further expounded.

Fans took to social media to share their thoughts about the said breakup.

Nine and Baifern previously worked together in the 2019 movie “Friend Zone.”
