MANILA, Philippines – Singer-actress Vina Morales has denied reports saying her sister, actress Shaina Magdayao, and her sister’s boyfriend, actor John Lloyd Cruz, secretly got wed when the 2 went to Europe recently.

“That’s not true, they’re not engaged and ‘yung mga lumalabas na they secretly got married. It’s not true, ang babata pa nila. Ako muna, si ate muna,” Morales told Push.com.ph.

Morales said intrigues like this cannot be avoided because both Cruz and Magdayao are public personalities.

“Basta ako I’m happy for them, si Idan (Cruz’s nickname), eh magbi-birthday na (June 24), happy kami dahil silang dalawa ay happy naman, at the same time, excited for the party na gagawin na close friends and family lang naman talaga [ang dadalo],” she said.

Morales added that she is not bothered because Cruz is always there to defend her sister.

“I can see Idan’s love for my sister. Kaya kaming pamilya ni Shaina wala kaming masabi but only good things for Idan and his family,” she said.

Although Magdayao has kept her mum despite all the intrigues being thrown at her and Cruz, Morales said she will only speak for her sister once she feels that Magdayao is already being aggrieved.

“Idan is there to protect Shaina, nakakaaliw and nakakataba ng puso. But siguro hindi man nagsasalita ang kapatid ko, kung talagang negative na, I have to defend her. Alam namin ang totoo, pangalawa andun si Idan para ipagtanggol siya sa mga lumalabas na isyu sa kanya at andun ang Star Magic para sa kanya. ‘Yung mga tagasuporta niya hindi naman maniniwala. Hinahayaan na lang namin para hindi lumaki,” she said.
