In a press conference for his biscuit endorsement, actor John Lloyd Cruz admitted that he and his girlfriend Shaina Magdayao are still trying to work on their relationship despite still not being “officially together”. Cruz said that he doesn’t want to add anything further since he wants to protect her relationship with Shaina after the controversies that their relationship went through.
“Ako masyado akong naging open siguro sa media — sa public — ng personal life ko na parang naging out of control ang nangyari. So right now, kung anuman ang gusto kong ma-achieve, siguro the best way to protect it siguro for now is to keep it to myself and let it be as private as possible,” the actor said.
The Actor further added that he and Shaina are in a stage of realizing and discovering the importance of their relationship and said that he is happy with the status of their relationship. “Maayos naman kami. Even shortly after everything that happened eh maayos naman kami. At kung anuman ang naging problema, I had to attend to it, [to] everything especially kung related sa family. So ‘yun lang ang ginawa ko. For now, that’s really all I can tell you. Maayos kami, wala naman kaming problema. We are okay, we spend time together pero that’s all I can tell you,” he said.
When asked if his relationship with Shaina is worth a second chance, John Lloyd said “yes” adding that artists like them are also normal people who want normal relationships with the people closest and dearest to them.
Cruz also admitted that he and Magdayao are still “in touch” and in fact planning to invite Shaina for a vacation trip with his family this Christmas.
