So it was true after all.
Heart Evangelista didn't shy away from talking about John Lloyd Cruz during an exclusive interview with Pep, confirming that she and the Kapamilya actor dated back when they were still teens.
Evangelista, who is now married to Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero, came clean about their past fling when asked about whether Pep's report about her being one of Cruz's former lovers held water.
“It was just one of those. ...I was in between -- like, I just broke up with someone at that time and I was gonna meet somebody also. So, it was very brief," she was quoted in saying.
She didn't spill any other details but it is believed that her short-lived romance with Cruz happened before Evangelista and Jericho Rosales started going out in 2005.
In the same interview, Evangelista said she's happy for Cruz, who now appears to be in a rumored relationship with Ellen Adarna.
"He's a really, really good guy," she said. "I'm really happy for him. Actually, I think they're bagay if they're together."
