John Lloyd Cruz Speaks Up About Alleged Lovechild

MANILA – John Lloyd Cruz said anyone claiming to be someone’s child should take the right steps to reach out to his parent, instead of making allegations through “blind items,” as in the actor’s case.

The actor allegedly brought his alleged kid with him to Los Angeles, but introduced her as his “niece.” John Lloyd however, simply laughed at the lovechild issue saying, “Kasi ang sinasabi, 16 siya ngayon. Dapat 15 ako noon na-conceive soya, parang hindi ko naman yata magagawa yun.”

Cruz faced reporters on Wednesday shortly after a press conference launching his fourth year as an endorser of snacks brand Magic.

Cruz also said rumors about his family ties are not new to him, noting that in the past, there were claims that he is not biologically related to his father.

“Hindi naman [ako naiinis sa mga ganyang tsimis], kasi medyo common na ‘yan sa amin. Dati nga, meron pang nagsasabi na hindi ko raw tatay ‘yung tatay ko, eh!” he said, laughing.
