John Lloyd Cruz Is Tired Of Issues Surrounding His Relationship With Angelica Panganiban; Clarifies That They Are HappyKapamilya actor John Lloyd Cruz can't help but be irritated with negative rumors surrounding his relationship with girlfriend Angelica Panganiban. He said they are truly happy with what they have, and they have been okay ever since they got together earlier this year.
He admitted to being offended by the issues coming out about them. He usually received text messages asking if they were okay; and he would wonder why questions like that arise.
"Right now, my life has never been better. Kahit naman in the past months, wala namang isyu talaga. You know, ‘yong sa amin ni Angelica na pilit ginagawan ng isyu, nakakasawa na nga."
He said the media may be the one to blame as to why such issues surface. Cruz said it may just be boring to see them doing fine with their relationship that people create rumors and issues that didn't really happen.
But the weight of clarifying these issues with their families and their friends fall on their shoulders, the actor said, reminding people they also have loved ones who care about what they hear from the media. Such unfounded rumors eventually make people believe that what it said are true, Cruz insisted.
"Kagaya ninyo, tao rin kami na may family, may family abroad, na kapag nakarinig ng mga balita na hindi maganda, nag-aalala. So, that’s weight on us, on our shoulders."
It baffles him as to why people love spreading rumors about him and Panganiban when they have generally been quiet about their relationship.
Cruz insisted they are okay now, and they haven't encountered any problems that would suggest otherwise. Even their families get along well together.
In fact, he is planning a trip to Thailand together with his cousins, brother and Panganiban. He wanted to take some time off from work and spend time with his loved ones, especially after the back-to-back birthday celebrations he had last month.
On June 22, Cruz spent his birthday with Billy Crawford, Luis Manzano and a few close friends during a celebration thrown for him by a brand he endorses. On June 23, Panganiban threw a secret birthday celebration at the Le Pavilion in Pasay City for her boyfriend and their families and friends.
During that time, Cruz said he couldn't ask for anything more since everything he has hoped for were present that night. He recounted that Panganiban rented inflatables, Velcro wall and air hockey tables for his party.
That June 23 celebration was personally organized by Panganiban herself. "So, kung lalaki ka, napakalaking bagay na no’n. I think you would understand kung ano ang sinasabi ko. It was a magical moment for me, for myself on my very special day together with all the closest [people] in my life."
For the past years, the actor said he has been so blessed that it's hard to ask for a reward for himself. Yet, he had not forgotten to thank the people who supported him.
"Every birthday naman is always a good time to give back, especially sa mga nagmamahal sa 'yo at sumusuporta sa 'yo, to the fans especially. I know it sounds cliché, pero kung wala namang fans na sumusuporta sa 'yo, di ba, saan ka pupulutin."
