Following the break up of Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo, press reports told that John Lloyd Cruz and Angelica Panganiban had called it quits after their 3 years of roller coaster relationship.
Citing his sources, talent manager Ogie Diaz revealed on his radio program on Radio dzMM that the two broke up last Saturday, January 16.
“Pero they remain friends,” added Diaz.
The latest rumors on the split of Cruz and Panganiban have been circulating following reports late last year that the two were spending less time together due to their busy schedules.
Both Cruz and Panganiban recently denied speculations that they have broken up.
Meanwhile, Diaz also denied the issue that Cruz’s “A Second Chance” co-star Bea Alonzo had something to do with the break up.
Citing a common friend of him and Cruz, Diaz said: “He told me na hindi sila ni Bea at hindi niligawan ni John Lloyd si Bea. Sabi pa raw ni John Lloyd, ‘hindi naging kami. Kami ni Bea ay magkaibigan lang.”
Showbiz news site Pinoy Parazzi, meanwhile, took note of Angelica recently chopping off her hair.
“Nagpagupit ng buhok si Angelica lately and many of her fans took it to mean na hiwalay na nga sila ni John Lloyd,” wrote Alex Brosas on Thursday, January 14. [Angelica recently had her hair cut and many of her fans took it to mean that she and John Lloyd has broken up.]
Brosas also said in his write up that the two broke up because John Lloyd fell in love with Bea during the shooting of their movie sequel “A Second Chance,” which was recently hailed as the highest grossing Filipino movie of all time after earning 566 million in combined international and local box office sales.
“Kahihiwalay lang kasi ni Bea kay Zanjoe Marudo at naging shoulder to cry on daw nito si Papa Lloydie. Ayun, na-develop ang dalawa at hiniwalayan daw ni John Lloyd si Angelica,” he also wrote. [Bea had just separated from Zanjoe Marudo and Papa Lloydie became a shoulder to cry on. Something developed between them and John Lloyd allegedly broke up with Angelica.]
John Lloyd and Bea have been one of the rare successful loveteams that lasted for decades but was never really got together as a couple. This might be the fans’ chance to fulfill the long fantasy of seeing the two romantically involved.
