Despite having broken up for several years now, Kaye Abad still defended her ex-boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz from criticisms.
Kaye’s comment came right on the heels of the announcement of the Home Sweetie Home star’s “indefinite leave from showbiz.”

“I guess nagbakasyon na rin siya. Mahilig siya sa bakasyon,” said the actress in an interview with PEP.
She likewise reiterated that John Lloyd is set to attend a special occasion in Europe.
There are reports that John Lloyd’s rumored girlfriend Ellen Adarna joined him on his recent escapade abroad.
What does Kaye have to say about this?
“Wala eh normal na tao. Ine-enjoy ang buhay,” she said.
The soon-to-be-mom also reiterated that the public shouldn’t make an issue out of it.
“Yun ang mahirap sa atin [sa showbiz]. Sabi ko nga, as long as hindi siya pumatay ng tao, hindi naman siya nagnakaw. Wala naman siyang ginawang masama, nag-enjoy lang sila,” she explained.
According to Kaye, the only reason why his actions are being magnified is because he’s a “public figure.”
In the end, Kaye appealed to the public to just let John Lloyd be.
“Hayaan na lang. At least masabi niya na na-enjoy niya ang buhay niya,” she said.
The two became a couple while portraying their characters Rovic and Eds, respectively, on the teen-oriented show Tabing Ilog in the late ‘90s.
