Don’t look now but showbiz heartthrob John Lloyd Cruz has gone on an indefinite leave. 

This was officially announced on Oct. 6 by his mother studio ABS-CBN in a statement stating that their contract star is taking a leave of absence because of personal reasons.

“ABS-CBN and John Lloyd Cruz have agreed for him to take an indefinite leave of absence to attend to personal matters,” the network stated as revealed by Kane Errol Choa,  head of Integrated Corporate Communications of ABS-CBN.

The statement also said the34-year-old actor will take a break “outside the country and will return to ABS-CBN after his leave of absence.”


It was not known how long the leave would be, however, and when he will be back to the country and his weekly sitcom, “Home Sweetie Home,” which airs every Saturday on ABS-CBN.

John Lloyd reportedly flew last Oct. 7, with rumored girlfriend, Ellen Adarna, to an undisclosed destination in Europe.


Both John Lloyd and Adarna also posted photos of what looks like an aircraft cabin on their social media accounts and reports indicated later that they flew to Portugal.


John Lloyd has been making showbiz headlines for several weeks now when videos of him and “Home Sweetie Home” co-star Ellen Adarna went viral during their Cebu getaway.


The two have posted their sweet photos on personal social media accounts but never admitted anything about their relationship status.


More photos of other getaways in other places were also posted by the two, fueling speculations that they were in a romance.


John Lloyd was last seen at the Star Magic Ball on September 30 without any partner but avoided the press in the red carpet.


As this developed, actress Angelica Panganiban was reported to be unperturbed by the controversy surrounding her ex, John Lloyd Cruz, and his rumored paramour, Ellen Adarna, according to showbiz columnist Ethel Ramos.

Angelica looked cool and unaffected at the Star Magic Ball, in spite of people talking about John Lloyd’s arrival; it was reported in the column. 

Both were date-less at the event. Angelica, however, strolled placidly on the red carpet, while John Lloyd chose to skip it, according to the report.

Angelica will soon be facing the movie cameras with Judy Ann Santos in “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes.” She is also seen regularly in the Sunday gag show, “Banana Sundae.” 


Judy Ann, Angelica and the cast of the movie were seen with visiting Hollywood actor Steven Segal and former Ilocos Sur Governor Luis “Chavit” Singson.
