When the credits rolled for the television coverage of the Star Magic Ball 2017, many were left wondering why John Lloyd Cruz was noticeably absent from the red carpet.
Did he skip the event entirely? Apparently, not.
The actor was spotted inside the Star Magic Ball proper, as seen in photos shared by Star Studio Magazine.
It remains unclear whether he decided to dodge the red carpet over concerns about his controversial relationship with Ellen Adarna, or he was simply late to the event.
Regardless, Cruz was pictured all smiles as he looked over the buffet offerings while wearing sunglasses.
