“Hindi ako napipikon, nababaduyan lang talaga ako.”

[I’m not pissed off. I just really find it corny.]

This was John Lloyd Cruz’s answer when asked about the rumors linking him to his fellow Kapamilya star Maja Salvador.

Fans speculated that the two are dating after they watched Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson’s  movie, “How to be Yours”, together. After that, they were spotted enjoying their free time on a beach in Davao.

Their handler, Neneth Rustia clarified in a text message sent to “Tonight with Boy Abunda” that the “One More Chance” co-stars are just friends. She added that if the two are indeed dating, they wouldn’t be posting photos of them together on social media.

As for John Lloyd, he said that their friendship shouldn’t be painted in a different angle by the media.

Philippine Entertainment Portal quoted him as saying: “Nagagamit lang sa airtime sa iba’t ibang show, and we don’t appreciate kasi napakaliit ng bakuran natin.

[It’s just being used in the airtime of the other shows, and we don’t appreciate that because we have a small industry.]

Alam ninyo, dito, lahat tayo magkakasama, magkakakilala tayo lahat dito. Alam ninyo kung ano ang totoo at hindi.

[You know, we’re all together here. We know one another. You know what’s true or not.]

He said that he understands that it’s part of the media’s work but he is hoping that instead of adding confusion to the public, the media would help in spreading the real deal.

When he was asked when he would be ready to enter a new relationship, John Lloyd said anyone wouldn’t know if he or she would be ready to be in a relationship.
