In an interview with ABS-CBN News during an endorsement presscon on March 31, John Lloyd Cruz finally broke his silence regarding his breakup with longtime girlfriend Angelica Panganiban. He admitted that they indeed have parted ways.
"Single na single, wala naman pong nagbabago, kasi kung meron naman magiging masaya ka naman ipamalita,” he said.
It was early this year when rumors about his break up with the actress circulated. It was also during this time that he and former love team partner Bea Alonzo were said to be dating.
On the topic of his “A Second Chance” co-star, the actor divulged, "Kayo ang unang makakaalam, atsaka pag ganun hindi naman dapat iyon nililihim o tinatago. Life is too short. You have to make every moment count. Sa edad kong to magtatago pa ba? Sila 'JaDine' nga umaamin, tayo pa ba? Nakakahiya naman kung magde-deny pa tayo."
He also explained that there’s no need to talk about him being romantically linked to Bea since the people involved in the issue know that there’s really nothing to talk about.
“We don't feel the need to talk about it. ...Kasi doon sa mga taong involved doon sa issue, alam nila naman kung ano ang totoo, and madalas sapat na sa amin iyong alam namin ang totoo.”
Meanwhile, John Lloyd’s next project on the big screen will be with Jennylyn Mercado. He described the “Just The Three of Us” star as ‘very professional.’
"[She's] very professional, very dedicated, wala akong masabi. Like all the women na nakatrabaho ko in the past, I thinkimportante si Jennylyn Mercado sa industriya natin. Masaya lang ako na nakatrabaho ko siya.”
