John Lloyd Cruz says that his relationship with Shaina Magdayao is doing well.
During the press conference of Imortal last February 2, John Lloyd Cruz said that he would like to move on from issues involving him, girlfriend Shaina Magdayao, and Ruffa Gutierrez with whom he had a past romance. He continued that Shaina and Ruffa have announced that they have resolved their differences and will no longer talk about the controversy.
The issue about the three resurfaced when Ruffa revealed last week that Shaina allegedly tried to call her at 2 am. "Ito na 'lsquo;yung ginagawa ko ngayon. Ayoko nang magpaliwanag pa further on. Ayoko nang magsalita pa ng higit pa sa dapat kong sabihin. Hangga'rsquo;t andun pa 'lsquo;yung respeto sa isat-isa sa mga taong involved at nagpapa-involve," explained the actor. "Mas okay na 'lsquo;yung ganon hangga'rsquo;t kaya mo pang ngitian at tawanan 'lsquo;yung issue okay pa 'lsquo;yan, 'lsquo;wag na nating hayaan na lumala pa."
John Lloyd said that though he understands the downsides of his career'mdash;such as being judged by others'mdash;it is only the concerned parties who have the real say. "'rsquo;Yung totoong storya ng kahit anong storya you owe it to yourself, you owe it to the people involved. Ako tanggap ko, naiintindihan ko na sa trabaho natin sa trabaho n'rsquo;yo (media) hindi maiiwasan 'lsquo;yung magbigay sila ng opinyon, ng comments nila and wala kang ibang gagawin, wala kang ibang choice na intindihin 'lsquo;yon kasi part 'lsquo;yun ng pinasok mong trabaho'hellip; Pero ang masasabi mo lang hindi lagi kung ano ang lumalabas, kung ano ang persepsyon nila, kung ano'rsquo;ng sinasabi ng mga taong ito. Alam ba nila kung ano ang totoo mula sa simula hanggang ngayon? Walang nakakaalam, kami lang ang nakakaalam."
The box office king said that his and Shaina'rsquo;s relatives abroad get worried whenever they hear negative issues about the couple. "Nag-aalala rin sila at hindi maganda na isang araw you'rsquo;ll be bombarded with text messages or calls [asking,] 'lsquo;Okay lang ba kayo, ano bang problema?'rsquo; Hindi madaling magpaliwanag sa napakaraming tao, especially sa mga taong concerned sa 'lsquo;yo."
Having said this, John Lloyd assured his and Shaina'rsquo;s relatives that they are doing well and that their relationship continues to grow stronger each day. "At this point, sobrang okay, sobrang saya ng lahat ngayon. Wala kaming ibang iniisip, walang ibang iniintindi kundi looking forward to many celebrations, nagtatrabaho kami. But after work we look forward to breaks, look forward to spending time together."
