John Lloyd Cruz and Ellen Adarna have allegedly parted ways even before the first birthday party of their son Elias Modesto last June 27.
Rumors have now surfaced online that the celebrity couple is now on co-parenting status for their 1-year-old son, despite the public’s view that the two seems to be living in a happy and peaceful life away from the limelight.
In a recent article by PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the news came from the camp of John Lloyd and Ellen that the couple’s relationship went sour even before their son Elias Modesto celebrated his first birthday last June.
According to a source from PEP:
“Birthday pa lamang ni Elias, malabo na. Co-parenting na lang sila. Hindi naman kasi nagbago mga buhay. Mahirap na ganun.”
In addition to that, another source also told PEP.ph that the actress said last month to a close friend of her that she can’t take the actor’s “too weird” attitude.
It was reported last August 4, in a column of the entertainment editor of Pilipino Star Ngayon, Salve Asis, that a “super reliable source” said that Ellen just woke up one day realizing that she does not want to be with John Lloyd anymore.
The source also disclosed that Ellen was the one who wanted to separate from the A-list actor.
Meanwhile, a blind item that recently released on a gossip blog site, said that a furious fight led to an actress breaking up with the actor. The same report mentioned that the actor’s former habit of alcohol addiction was the main reason for their breakup.
But although they did not specify the names of the celebrities involved, many netizens predicted that it was meant for John Lloyd and Ellen, basing on the comments in the said blind item.
Following these rumors, Kadenang Ginto star Beauty Gonzalez was recently seen together with her best friend Ellen Adarna and her son, in a Bangkok Thailand trip without the presence of John Lloyd.
Ellen and John Lloyd started to become close to each other in the ABS-CBN’s sitcom Home Sweetie Home, starring actor and Toni Gonzaga, where Ellen was a guest on the show until she later became a regular talent.
They later surprised many showbiz fans when they publicly manifested their relationship in the last quarter of 2017. Many netizens initially thought that it would be unlikely to these two celebrities to be together due to their personalities and image in showbiz.
In October 2017, Star Magic announced that John Lloyd will be on indefinite leave in showbiz, followed by an exclusive report on PEP.ph that Ellen was already pregnant with the actor being the father.
The celebrity couple tried to be as discreet as possible when it comes to their private life and decided to live in Cebu, until the actress gave birth to their son on June 27, 2018, at Chong Hua Hospital.
