The two have been linked to one another on more than one occasion. In January 2020, Issa was accused of being the third party in James and his ex-girlfriend Nadine Lustre‘s then-recent split. In the same story, James clarified that Issa had nothing to do with his breakup with Nadine.

James Reid’s Childhood and Early Life!

James Reid (@james) was born on May 11, 1993, in Sydney, Australia, to Robert Malcolm Reid and Marcela Calicdan. His mother is Filipino, while his father is Australian. James grew up with seven siblings, four brothers, and three sisters. James’ interest in singing as a child came from his mother’s previous career as a part-time singer. He began learning music very early in childhood, which helped him develop into a competent vocalist before he achieved fame.

But, there were problems in the household. Although his parents divorced when he was just 2 years old, he remained in Australia and spent his early years at Mosman, on Sydney’s North Shore. James’s father decided to relocate to the Philippines when he was 15 years old because he felt the need to. James initially felt the need to pursue a career in entertainment in this Asian nation.

To put it mildly, his early years in the Philippines were challenging. He was not fluent in the native language, and few people there spoke English. Also, he had a lot of difficulties adjusting to the significant shift in his academic and social schedule. James was quite active in swimming and gymnastics in Australia. But, as soon as he arrived in the Philippines, both of these interests started to fade.

He first enrolled in Makati Science High School, but after a few months, he realized he couldn’t stay. Thereafter, his father enrolled him in Karabar High School Online Education Center, an Australian educational institution that offered distance learning.
