MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - Actress Shaina Magdayao finally spoke up regarding the status of her relationship with actor John Lloyd Cruz.
In an exclusive interview with Boy Abunda aired on “TV Patrol” on Wednesday, Magdayao belied the rumor that Cruz’s ex-girlfriend, Ruffa Gutierrez, is the root cause of their troubled relationship.
“Tito Boy, Hindi po," she said when asked the question.
However, Magdayao admitted she recently sent a text message to Gutierrez, telling her to leave them alone.
“I told her to leave us alone, gaya ng gusto kong sabihin sa kanya. Ako kasi ‘yung tipo ng taong sasarilinin ko muna, hindi ko muna sasabihin hanggang kaya ko pa, but lately, hindi ko na kinaya.”
According to Magdayao, the reason why she texted Gutierrez was to reply to the latter's message for her boyfriend.
She explained, “Nag-text siya kay John Lloyd right after we left the party, and I replied.”
Both Magdayao and Cruz refused to reveal the real reason behind their current misunderstanding.
“They can speculate kung ano ang gusto nilang sabihin, kung ano ang istorya nila na ‘Ay kaya sila nagkakaproblema, kaya sila hiwalay ngayon dahil kay ganito.’ Wala sa kalingkingan ng kahit na sinong babae ang totoong dahilan ng pinagdadaanan namin ngayon, o kung ano ‘yung totoong dahilan. Sa sarili namin, masyadong malalim, masyadong personal," Cruz said.
Last Monday, Cruz said mending the rift with Magdayao is a "complicated and difficult process."
“Kung paano siya maaayos o magtatapos hindi ko pa alam. Medyo komplikado at mahirap na process ito kaya I can only hope for the best hindi lang para sa akin but para sa aming dalawa, so we can be better people individually,” Cruz told ABS-CBN News.
Cruz denied that his so-called ex-girlfriends were the reasons for their rift.
“Ako na mismo ang magsasabi walang kinalaman si Ruffa or kahit na sinong ex-girlfriends. Basta kung ano ang problema namin, it's between me and Shaina,” he said.
Many believe Gutierrez was referring to Magdayao when she said in her Twitter account recently that “there is no cure for the insecure.”
"No cure for the insecure. Everyone still keeps asking me who I'm pertaining to. Deadma na. Someone said sorry na in her behalf. That's all that matters," Gutierrez had tweeted.
"My gosh panahon pa ni Magsaysay...huwag ka naman mainsecure! There's nothing I can do if my legs are longer than yours."
Cruz had also admitted that his relationship with Magdayao was on the rocks.
"To be honest, hindi maganda ang bagay bagay ngayon. 'Yon lang ang masasabi ko. Ang mga bagay ngayon, they are not looking good," he said.
Cruz, Magdayao and Gutierrez crossed paths during the recent birthday celebration of actress Bea Alonzo and the birthday concert of singer Vina Morales. – Report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
