This was confirmed by the actor himself, according to a report by Pep.ph.
The news first came out in a column written by entertainment editor Salve Asis for Pilipino Star Ngayon published Thursday, February 18.
Asis cited in her report that she overheard the confirmation when TV Patrol anchor Ted Failon chatted with the Honor Thy Father actor during a gathering in the ABS-CBN compound. John Lloyd and Angelica have remained friends, added Asis, in spite of the breakup.
A post made on Instagram may prove the statement. Eagle-eyed fans noticed that our 2007 cover girl recently exchanged messages with @privateidan, an Instagram account allegedly owned by Cruz.
In the same comments section, "Private Idan" left this: "Anong magaling diyan? Kaw talaga. Labo mo."
Panganiban responded as such:
We Googled zleef, but it returned nothing of use. The word could be a part of some sort of secret language shared by the two. The reason for the end of the relationship also remains a mystery at this point.
Rumors that on-screen partners Popoy (Cruz) and Basha (Bea Alonzo) are now together in real life have also been squashed by the 32-year-old Cruz. He denied that he is in a relationship with Alonzo in an interview with Philippine Star. "Hindi po. Magkaibigan po kami. Wala pong [relasyon]."
