The showbiz reporter also bared that the alleged reason for the postponement or cancellation of the transfer is that both camps failed to reach an agreement as regards the talent fee of the actor.
“Sayang, sayang na pagbabalik! Ang init-init dahil totoo namang magaling siyang aktor. At ang tao kapag may bitbit na talento kapag nawala, sa kanyang pagbabalik ay dalawang kamay pa po siyang tinatanggap ng publiko,” Nay Cristy said.

She then said that she heard talks about the actor’s camp and GMA executives failing to agree upon JLC’s talent fee.
“Bakit may kuwento kay John Lloyd na hindi nila pinagkasunduan ng GMA 7, e, TF o talent fee? Sayang naman ito,” she remarked.
The showbiz reporter also said that it’s a pity because people were already eagerly waiting for his return to the limelight.
“Nasayang naman ang kanyang pagbabalik na inaabangan pa naman ng buong bayan dahil John Lloyd Cruz nga siya,” the showbiz reporter opined.
Her program buddy, Rommel Chika, pitched in his thoughts about JLC not having enough exposure on social media.
He then noted the lack of activity on the social media account of John Lloyd.
“E, kasi Nay ang labanan ngayon parang kung sino ‘yung masipag at kung sino ‘yung nakikita madalas sa social media. Hindi active masyado sa IG niya. Hindi siya nagpo-post,” Rommel said.
Nay Cristy then said that the trend now is to be seen by producers and to do that, you need to exert some effort.
“Sabi nila, hindi na uso ngayon ang over exposure. Ang nagkakaroon ng trabaho ngayon ay kung sino ang nakikita ng mga producers. Sayang, sayang na sayang si John Lloyd,” she said.
The showbiz reporter then recalled the supposed plan about John Lloyd and his anticipated return to showbiz through GMA Network.
Rommel then suggested that JLC might just return to his home network, ABS-CBN, because after all, that’s where he started.
He said it would be a pity if John Lloyd would just let his talent go to waste.
Nay Cristy then said JLC returning to the big screen is what exactly what the people want of him.

In a previous post several weeks before, JLC showed his son, Elias Modesto, the joys of simple life during the birthday celebration of the actor’s dad, Luisito Cruz. The actor posted a photo on Instagram showing him, his Dad Luisito, and Elias Modesto in what appeared to be a bamboo and nipa shed located in the countryside. JLC was holding a half-eaten banana that he might have been feeding to his son. The photo also shows Elias looking around as if trying to familiarize himself with the place as his Lolo Sito tries to get him to look at the camera.
In his interview with Karen Davila, the actor was asked about love matters. During the interview, Karen went ahead and asked the actor about his ultimate leading lady, Bea Alonzo. According to John Lloyd, Bea will always be Bea in his life, and that it will always be special to him. However, he went on to clarify that he and Bea never became a thing during the time that they were working together.
