MANILA – Ellen Adarna finally broke her silence weeks after she made headlines for supposedly getting drunk during this year’s Star Magic Ball and for allegedly leaving her date, actor Ejay Falcon.

In an exclusive interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” during its pilot episode on Monday, Adarna admitted she indeed had a few drinks but stressed that she was still aware of what she was doing.

“Yes, I was drunk basta hindi ako wasak na wasak. Nakainom lang,” she said.

As to supposedly leaving Falcon, Adarna said: “No, that’s not true. You can also ask Ejay if you want. It’s not true.”

Adarna, meanwhile, explained the video where she can be seen holding hands with Paulo Avelino during the party, while Falcon was nowhere in sight.

“Yes, that’s true. I grabbed Paulo’s hands because masakit na 'yung paa ko,” she said.

Dispelling rumors that she was flirting with Avelino, Adarna said: “No, of course not. Matagal na kaming friends ni Paulo and we are just really friends. I’m actually dating someone right now. He’s non-showbiz. For me, wala naman akong ginawang mali kasi wala naman akong sinaktang tao. I was there to have fun because it was a party.”

On Saturday, Falcon denied that he and Adarna are not okay after the Star Magic Ball incident.

Falcon said he sees nothing wrong that Adarna was seen with Avelino during the gathering of stars because they are all good friends.

"Alam ko po magkaibigan talaga sila ni Ellen. Lumalabas labas din sila na grupo, kasama sila Solenn (Heussaff). Nagkakasama na rin sila talaga sa grupo. Nakikita ko sa mga pictures and nakukuwento rin nila. Kaya [hindi ko maintindihan kung] bakit parang iniintriga ng mga tao,” he said.

Falcon said nothing has changed since they made headlines because of what happened during the party.

“Sobrang okay kami. Sa trabaho, ganun pa rin naman. In-explain ko na sa Instagram ko 'yung nangyari sa ball. Hindi naman din kami so bakit parang 'yung mga tao, big deal sa kanila na parang hindi kami magkasama madalas sa ball?” he said.
