Markus Paterson broke his silence after speculations that he laid his hands on Janella Salvador made rounds online.
This, after Janella’s interview with Ogie Diaz resurfaced amid the issue of their breakup. In the said interview, the actress herself opened up about her trauma with drunken men.
“Actually, ‘yung naging trauma sa ‘kin hindi ‘yung physical part e. I have never talked about this. I won’t go into detail na lang pero ‘yung part na na-trauma ako for some reason is being around drunk people, drunk men. Pag lalaki, tapos lasing, tapos wala sa sarili, doon ako na-trauma,” Janella said during her interview with Ogie back in February.
“Siyempre he’s [Markus Paterson] younger, hindi niya maiwasan na gusto niyang mag-enjoy minsan. Hindi niya naman din kasalanan na may trauma ako pero we’re trying to work on it,” she added.
Fans became even more convinced that the relationship of the couple did not end well after the Markus’ statements seemingly alluding to Janella circulated on Twitter.
"Anong susunod na relationship? Susunod na relationship? Kung may lessons ako sa mga relationships ko, it's never to f---ing date someone in the industry," Markus said.
Markus posted on his Instagram stories, revealing that he will address the allegations in an upcoming podcast.
“Saw some tweets circulating. FACT: I have NEVER, and WILL never lay my hands on a woman. My parents raised me right. I’ll address the rest on the podcast,” he said.
Janella confirmed that she is now a single mom in a recent appearance on Bernadette Sembrano’s vlog.
"Talagang nilalaban ko iyon. At the end of the day, alam kong kaya ko naman siya. As much as I love the people around me who are always there to help me, I always want to know na kaya kong gawin. I don’t want it to sound bad kasi, pero I can rely on myself na hindi ko kailangang humingi ng tulong sa iba," Janella said.
"Siguro kasi I saw my mom growing up, kung paano siya,” she added. "She was able to raise us on her own. So siguro na-embody ko rin kung paano siya. I wanted to be independent as well.”
