Angelica Panganiban finally addressed rumors linking her to John Lloyd Cruz.
The Kapamilya actress was linked to John Lloyd right after Derek Ramsay confirmed his break-up with Angelica. Yahoo! Philippines OMG! reported last May 31 that the two were seen together “looking ‘very sweet together’ and ‘appeared to be holding hands’” at a restaurant in Rockwell, Makati City.
Another report claims John Lloyd was spotted at Angelica’s condominium lobby.
However, when asked by ABS-CBN’s “The Buzz” in an interview aired Sunday, June 10 how special John Lloyd is to her, Angelica said: “Wala naman kami sa ganoong level. Nagtatrabaho lang kami. Sa ngayon, hanggang dun pa lang 'yun, magkaibigan kami. And 'yun lang yun.”
“Kung magiging special siya, e di makikita n’yo, malalaman n’yo. Kung maging matalik kaming magkaibigan, e di magiging special siya,” she added.
Angelica also said she and John Lloyd have been friends for a long time.
“Matagal na naman kaming magkakilala. Matagal na kaming magkaibigan. Mahirap bigyan ng ibig sabihin, mahirap bigyan ng kulay. Kung ako ang magbibigay ng kulay, baka mag-iba. So hayaan muna natin. Hindi ko alam kung ano ang meron bukas e.”
She further said, “Siguro kung meron akong natutunan, ang natutunan ko yung ma-appreciate ko kung ano ang meron ngayon. Hindi ako mag-eexpect ng kahit ano kasi masakit yun. So, day by day lang, dahan dahan ako.”
“Yun ang medyo imposible na talaga mangyari. Medyo hindi na ako yun. Hindi ko naman lubos maisip na gagawin ko yun,” Angelica explained.
Angelica asked people not to give meaning to her friendship with John Lloyd.
“Pagod na pagod pa yung heart ko ngayon. Wag muna, wag muna,”she said. “Wala akong ibang daanan kundi yung path na masaya. Pag dinala ko yung sarili ko sa malungkot, malulugmok lang ako. Alam ko naman na magiging okay ako e.”
Has she moved on from her break-up with Derek?
“Ayos lang. Steady lang ako,” Angelica said. “Mas maganda kasing mag-move on, e... I think mas maliwanag yung future ko.”
Derek defends Angelica
Meanwhile, in an interview with TV5’s “Paparazzi: Showbiz Exposed” on Saturday, June 9, Derek defended Angelica over the rumors.
On reports that the two were seen in Angelica’s condominium building, Derek said: “Alam n’yo guys kung totoo yan, ang daming nag-picture n’yan.”
“John Lloyd Cruz is John Lloyd Cruz. He's the most popular actor in the country. If he walks around Eastwood, there'd be a lot of people showing pictures of John Lloyd and Angel. I know that's not true,” he added.
The actress also dismissed reports linking her to the break-up of John Prats and Bianca Manalo.
“Ang nakakalungkot lang, bata pa lang ako kaibigan ko na si John, e. Pangit na bigyan ng ibig sabihin yun, ng malisya yun.”
‘Hindi na ako yun’
Asked about the reports claiming John Lloyd was seen in her condominium building, she said: “Yun nga, e. Kasi parang lahat ng mga kaibigan ko… Hindi ko naman masisisi yung mga tao kasi pwede na siyang bigyan ng meaning ngayon e. Kasi kung dati siguro ito nangyari, hindi naman siya bibigyan ng meaning kasi in a relationship ang mga tao noon.”
She added it’s impossible for the two of them to been seen holding hands, more so kissing in public.
