Jake Cuenca speaks up on rumors that Melissa Ricks ran away from home


Jake Cuenca recently earned praises for his performances in Your Song Presents Sa Kanya Pa Rin Babalik with Roxanne Guinoo and Precious Hearts Romances Presents My Cheating Heart with Cristine Reyes. “Actually gustong-gusto ko nga yun (Your Song), kasi ibang-iba sa mga roles na na-portray ko na dati. I found it so challenging. Thank you. Sana tuloy-tuloy ang suporta ng mga tao sa PHR namin ni Cristine. Kami naman kasi ni Cristine magkaibigan kami. Undeniably, matagal na naming gustong gawin ‘yung project so ngayong tuloy na we’re really happy.

“For me kasi I don’t act, I try as much as possible to live in my character’s shoes, kung anu man ‘yun. Mekaniko man siya sa Your Song or mayaman na factory owner sa Precious Hearts or kung sundalo man sa Tayong Dalawa. As much as possible hindi ko gustong ina-acting ko. I like being my character. Kaya pag sinasabi kong focused ako sa character ko, mahirap mag-break out dito. Kasi ganun ko kino-commit ang sarili ko sa trabaho ko.”

Meanwhile, Jake reacted to rumors that he was the one who accompanied Melissa Ricks when the latter left her house without informing her parents and supposedly ran away from home. “She was just at home. Wala akong alam sa paglalayas niya or anything like that. Ako gusto ko lang magpasalamat kasi sa mga interviews ni Melissa andami niyang magagandang sinabi tungkol sa akin kaya I’m very flattered. Pero sana matapos na ‘yung issue kasi alam kong hindi totoo yun at saka hindi na maganda yung mga lumalabas na issues. Okay na okay naman sila ng family niya. Sumasama ‘yung mommy niya sa ASAP and nakikita ko naman na okay sila so I don’t think there is a problem,” Jake explained.

He further stressed that there is nothing going on between him and Melissa and hopes that these issues will soon be over. “Basta ang sa akin naman I’m a friend of Melissa and there’s no reason not to like her. Magkaibigan lang talaga kami sinabi ko na yan ng paulit-ulit para na akong sirang plaka, basta magkaibigan lang kami.”
