John Prats says he is happy for ex-girlfriend Bianca Manalo and that he is not looking for a new relationship right now.
During Banana Split
’s fourth anniversary press conference, John Prats was asked for his reaction regarding ex-girlfriend Bianca Manalo’s reported new relationship with a model. Although unaware of Bianca’s new beau, he actor/dancer said he has nothing but well wishes for his former flame. “Hindi ko alam
sorry ha (laughs). Ayun matangkad, bagay sila ‘di ba?
(laughs) Sa akin naman, sa umpisa pa lang sinabi ko naman nung dati pa na sana mahanap namin yung
and now na nalaman ko diumano na
happy siya ngayon eh di yun lang naman ang wini
-wish ko na maging masaya ang lahat,
” he shared after the event at Napa restaurant in Quezon City last October 30.
After their separation earlier this year, the 28-year old said that he would not blame Bianca if she chose to get into a relationship right away. “Sa panahon naman ngayon, hindi ba parang kung meron namang nandiyan para magpasaya sa iyo, huwag na nating pakawalan. Masaya ako sa sarili ko pero hindi ko naman siya hinahanap sa ngayon pero para maiba naman e-enjoyin ko muna ang sarili ko ng mag-isa and surrounded by so many friends at makipag-meet. I’m openly parang entertaining pero hindi naman ako yung parang kailangan magka-girlfriend kaagad, hindi naman ganun,” he said.
Now that his Banana Split co-star Angelica Panganiban has openly admitted to dating John Lloyd Cruz, John said they were able to avoid any awkwardness that could have happened. This is because Lloydy is the ex-boyfriend of Shaina Magdayao whom John also dated previously. “Well in fairness to Angelica, nung sa mga moments na lumalabas sila, she talked to me about it and yun nga yung sinasabi ko na yung friendship namin ni Angelica is really unconditional na parang siyempre iisipin ko na bakit naman ako magagalit sa isang tao nagpapasaya sa isang taong mahal ko din di ba?” he explained.
John said his close friendship with Angelica has helped him accept them as a couple more easily. “Siyempre tao lang din ako na nung una parang awkward. After that awkwardness parang na-realize ko na nung nag-usap kami ni Lloydy, sabi ko sa kanya na huwag lang niyang sasaktan yung best friend ko, nung Star Magic Ball pa yun. Yun lang naman sinabi ko sa kanya, very brief but after that parang okay na, very casual na kami. Mabuting tao naman si Lloydy eh, alam ko naman na kaya naman dalhin ni Angelica yung sarili niya at kung ano man yung meron sila, sa kanila naman yun at buhay naman nila yun. Nandito lang naman ako bilang kaibigan na handang sumuporta para sa kanya,” he said.
