MANILA, Philippines - ASAP XV's Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo broke her silence on reports saying that she has broken off her relationship with dancer-actor Rayver Cruz.
"Paano naman mangyayari yong magbi-break kami na hindi naman kami naging kami," Geronimo said during a press conference for her latest endorsement "555 Corned Tuna" with actor John Lloyd Cruz.
The Pop Princess said she and Rayver are just friends and that Rayver is dating someone else.
Geronimo also cleared speculations that Rayver gave up pursuing her because of her strict parents.
"Sila mommy at daddy para sa akin na maging committed nag-aaral pa ako at may career pa ako, basta kami ni Rayver ay magkaibigan at lahat ng kaibigan ko ay espesyal sa puso ko pero hindi," she said.
Geronimo also spoke about the recent exit of singer Rachelle Ann Go from ASAP XV allegedly because the latter was not given enough exposure on the show because of Geronimo.
Geronimo said that all the artists in ASAP XV are given enough time to showcase their talents. "Ah! Ano ba naman 'yan walang ganyan. Alam niyo sa ASAP bawat artist ay nabibigyan ng pagkakataon na magawa kung ano ang gusto nilang gawin, yung mag-perform at kumanta," she said.
Geronimo said that she really felt sad when Go decided to move to a rival network.
"Siyempre sobrang mabigat sa loob sabi ko nga magkakasabay kami magkasama kami sa isang management sa VIVA," Geronimo said.
As a friend, Geronimo just wished her friend all the luck in her new show. "I'm hoping na aalagaan siya doon at mas magiging maganda at magkakaroon siya ng growth as an artist as performer naniniwala ako na lahat tayo, ang Diyos ay may planong napakaganda para sa atin at lahat naman everytrhing happens for a purpose," he said.
"I'm always here for her. Kami, hindi kami mawawalang mga kaibigan niya at mahal na mahal namin siya," Geronimo said.
Geronimo also denied reports that she was offered a P30 million contract to move to GMA-7.
Geronimo said she hasn't heard of any offer, and she is really clueless about the said report.
"Ha? wala wala," she said.
Reports even said that her management VIVA turned down the offer because they are grateful to ABS-CBN for giving Geronimo big breaks in her career.
"Hindi ko po alam, to tell you honestly wala po akong alam sa mga negotiations sa mga ganyang offfer," Geronimo said.
Sarah, also known as the Box Office Queen, might do a musical series with actor-singer Sam Milby.
