ABS-CBN on John Lloyd Cruz: He will always be a Kapamilya

MANILA, Philippines – TV network ABS-CBN debunked reports that actor John Lloyd Cruz had approached them to return to work and that they turned him down.

In a statement to the media Friday, June 29, Kane Errol Choa, head of Corporate Communications for the network said that the actor is still on leave.

"There is no truth to reports that John Lloyd Cruz approached ABS-CBN to request that he return to work, and that the network turned him down. John Lloyd is still on an indefinite leave to attend to personal matters."

"ABS-CBN values its strong relationship with John Lloyd built through the years. ABS-CBN’s doors are always open to John Lloyd, and he will always be a Kapamilya," Choa said.

According to entertainment website PEP, reports surfaced that the actor had plans to return to work after a months-long hiatus. John Lloyd himself, however, has not yet spoken about his supposed plan. 

In October 2017, ABS-CBN announced that John Lloyd was taking an indefinite leave from showbiz. This followed news that John Lloyd and Home Sweetie Home co-star Ellen Adarna were dating. (#Couplegoals: The low-key relationship of John Lloyd Cruz and Ellen Adarna)
