MANIAL – Janella Salvador has finally broken her silence on the recent breakup of her onscreen partner, Elmo Magalona, and actress Janine Gutierrez.

In an interview at the sidelines of the 2016 PMPC Star Awards for Music and TV on Sunday, Salvador denied that she has anything to do with the split.

“Yung reaction ko diyan, wala. As long as I know na wala naman akong ginawang masama, I’d rather stay out of it kasi I’m really not involved naman talaga,” she said.

Asked if she feels bad for Magalona and Gutierrez, Salvador said: “Of course, I do. I’m always going to be here for Elmo, siyempre more for Elmo because he’s my friend. If I have to comfort him, I’m going to be here naman.”

Is she open in case Magalona decides to court her now that he’s no longer in a relationship? “Tignan natin. We need time,” she briefly stated.

Salvador said he likes Magalona because “he is very caring as a friend and he will always think of others too.”

Ever since they were paired together in “Born For You,” Magalona and Salvador have been subject to romance rumors. They even attended last Saturday's Star Magic Ball together.

The two have repeatedly downplayed these, but admitted that they do enjoy the close friendship that they have.
