StarStruck winner Jennylyn Mercado succumbed to her emotions during an interview with Startalk aired yesterday, August 11.
"Siguro hindi ko kailangang mag-deal sa problem nila kasi that's their problem and not mine," sobbed Jennylyn uncontrollably.
Rumors had it that the young actress is currently in a state of depression brought about by the conflict that transpired between her manager Becky Aguila and GMA-7 regarding co-talent Angel Locsin's controversial transfer to ABS-CBN.
"She's my very good friend," Jen said about Angel. "Okay naman kami. Ayoko lang makialam, basta pag may problema siya, lagi lang akong nandito for her. But siyempre, iba ‘yung problem na hindi puwedeng pakialaman."
Many fear that Jennylyn might carry the brunt of the unfortunate incident as she is still very much under the care and supervision of the Kapuso Network. As of the past few days, various talks had surfaced saying that GMA-7 had cancelled and pulled out Jennylyn from most of the projects initially intended for her. GMA-7 vehemently denied all the accusations and assured Jennylyn that she has nothing to worry about.
"Iba ‘yung situation ko and situation ni Tita Becky [and] ‘yung situation ni Angel, so hindi kami pare-pareho. Kumbaga, ang nagha-handle sa akin, GMA and si Tita Becky. And si Tita Becky is always there to support me..." Jen broke down, unable to continue her statement.
"Hindi naman mapipigilan ‘yong situation kasi manager ko si Tita Becky and siyempre, lahat tayo may nagagawang mali. Siguro let's just pray that everything would be okay.
"Hindi nila [GMA] ako idinadamay sa mga probema namin ni Tita Becky, kasi ‘yun nga, case-to-case basis. Problema nila, hindi ko problema ‘yon," she continued.
Jen's lovelife is also under constant attack. According to rumors, she and boyfriend Patrick Garcia are said to be always arguing, aside from malicious talks that Patrick often spend the night at Jen's house.
"We're so together and we're in good terms naman. Ewan ko siguro normal lang na nagkakatampuhan pero ‘yung away it's not true," dismissed Jen.
She never denied that Patrick comes to her house often but only just to visit her and not what the rumors were suggesting: "May trabaho naman ‘yung tao. May bahay naman ‘yon. Dumadalaw sa bahay siyempre boyfriend ko, pero hindi natutulog."
