"Nag-apologize sila [Director Paul Soriano] and everything is okay now. There's no reason naman na magalit pa," said John Prats about the interview of Direk Paul with The Buzz last Sunday, September 16.
John again explained to Entertainment Live yesterday, September 22, why he got upset with Direk Paul's "no comment" reply when he was asked about Camille Prats's pregnancy.
The actor said, "Well, siguro pwede nating sabihin na ayaw nga niyang mag-comment. Ang "no comment" kasi, di ba, siyempre parang ang dami niyang pwedeng ibig sabihin. Parang kapag tinanong mo ako ang sinabi ko na "no comment" ang dami mong maiisip, pwedeng maglaro yung isip mo.
"So yun lang naman ang point ko na sana noong natanong siya, nagsabi na siya ng diretso, yung totoo, para at least tapos na."
Meanwhile, John also clarified that the issue did not affect his friendship with Toni Gonzaga, Direk Paul's current girlfriend. He also did not intend to not to talk to her when the issue came out. "Siyempre hindi niya ako tinawagan so hindi ko rin siya tinawagan until now kasi siyempre gusto namin mag-usap kami ng personal," said John.
He also said that it was not true that he was avoiding Toni last Sunday, September 16, in ASAP, which is why he was absent during that day. He narrated, "Sinabi nga ni Toni [sa Entertainment Live] na, ‘Tomorrow magkikita kami sa ASAP.' Sinabi ko na, ‘Hindi mo na ako makikita kasi may sakit ako.'"
John then described that their friendship has not changed. He said, "Sa amin naman ni Toni, wala namang mababago, e. Like yung sa family namin, never namin siyang nasama sa issue. Walang atraso sa amin ni Toni. Wala din akong atraso sa kanya, alam mo yun? Wala naman din akong dapat ikatakot or reason para magtago ako sa kanya."
And as his final message to Toni, John said, "You know, Toni that I've always been here for you. Alam naman natin na ang friendship natin ay talagang malalim. My family loves you so ganun pa rin, walang pagbabago. I'm looking forward na magkita tayo at makapagtsikahan."
For Direk Paul, John asked him to love and take care of his best friend. "Direk Paul, ina-accept namin, I accept your apology. Kumbaga ang sa akin na lang ngayon, e, just take good care of my best friend. I'm sure you'll do. Yun lang, keep loving Toni kasi sobrang amazing ang taong iyan," said John.
