Jolo Revilla to Melissa Ricks: 'Kung kailangan niya ng kaibigan, nandito lang naman tayo'


060411-jolo-main.jpgJolo Revilla denied accusations that he was the third party that led to the breakup of Jake Cuenca and Melissa Ricks’s relationship. He confirmed that he and Melissa still keep in touch, but rarely exchange text messages. Jolo was Melissa’s leading man in the 2009 teleserye Pepeng Agimat and were once romantically linked, but no relationship blossomed because the actress became Jake’s girlfriend.

With the news that Melissa is now mending a broken heart from her failed relationship with Jake, Jolo said, “Ang masasabi ko lang ngayon kung kailangan niya ng kaibigan, nandito lang naman tayo, eh pero hanggang dun lang.” Jolo is currently taping for My Binondo Girl, and plays as one of Kim Chiu’s leading men.

With the persistent rumors that he was the cause of Jake and Melissa’s breakup, Jolo pointed out, “Gusto ko munang i-clarify never akong pumasok at papasok sa isang bagay o isang relasyon na may karelasyon, na ako pa ang magiging dahilan sa paghihiwalay sa kahit anumang sitwasyon ‘yan. ‘Yun lang ang gusto kong i-clarify, hindi po totoo ‘yon at hindi po ako pinalaki ng mga magulang ko na ganon.” He added that if he was extra sweet to Melissa when they did Pepeng Agimat, Jolo said that he was being a gentleman.

Asked about Jake’s previous statement that he had felt jealous of him, the actor-politician replied, “Trabaho lang, pero ngayon hindi ko sasabihing ako ‘yung dahilan [ng breakup nila ni Mel], imposible ‘yon.

The actor was then asked if he plans to pursue Melissa now that she is available again. “Actually, I hardly have time for myself; politics, showbiz, tapos hahaluan mo pa ng love life baka lalo pang bumigay. Mas mabuting huwag mo nang dagdagan. Balanse na muna saka na ‘yon. Bata pa naman ako, eh 23 pa lang naman.

Another controversy that has been hounding Jolo is the issue that he and former Noah co-star Jodi Sta. Maria allegedly have a romantic relationship, but which Jolo already denied. “Basta ako walang katotohan kung anuman ‘yung lumabas, magkaibigan kami, sana huwag nating lagyan ng kulay.

Jolo stressed that he is not bothered even if he is currently single and continued that there is no need to rush. “Saka na muna, hindi ‘yan hinahanap basta na lang dumadating. Kumbaga 23-years-old pa lang ako siguro bandang 25 pwede na. Kumbaga trabaho muna.
