Ruffa Gutierrez reached out to Kapamilya star John Lloyd after being involved in a controversy.
“Maliit lang naman ang industriya at may pinagsamahan naman kami,” Ruffa explained.
“I messaged him and I said, ‘I’m offering you my prayers.
"Hope whatever it is you’re going through, malampasan mo ‘yan.’"
John Lloyd thanked her.
“And he sent the message back and he said, ‘I really appreciate you checking up on me,’” shared Ruffa.
“Siyempre sa amin na lang yung conversation namin!” she exclaimed.
The 43-year old actress revealed that thier relationship lasted a year in 2009.
In contrast with his image in television, the videos uploaded showed John Lloyd who looked drunk.
He was with some friends and with Ellen Adarna.
Ruffa's reaction when she saw the video?
“Na-shock at naawa,”
The two remained as friends despite having a romantic past.
“We’re not the best of friends, we don’t hang out, but we have a civil relationship.
"I can say we’re friends, maliit lang naman ang industriya.
"Whatever thing we’ve been through in the past, naayos na yun, matagal na,” she related.
The actress doesn't want to give him advice because of this reason,
“Well, first of all, matanda na siya.
"He knows what he’s doing, if he approves of that, then it’s his thing.
“But me, personally, I’m always very particular about who I’m with.
"I wanna surround myself with good people, with positive people.
"And people who will protect me, and not people that will put me in bad light.
“And, especially, it takes you so long and so hard to build a career to build a life.
"And in one instant, masisira lang."
“Personally, if someone did that to me, naku, patay na siya! As in, patay!”
“Basically, if you, guys, wanna have a good time... itago niyo ang mga cell phones niyo.
“Back in the day kasi, pag lumalabas ako, di pa uso yung cell phones.
"I’m so thankful I was able to have a great happy life na walang nakakaalam.
“In the first place, hindi naman ganun ang trip ko.
“I’m happy that I was able to have a great teenage life.
"Walang social media, walang cameras, walang phones pa back then.
“Now, kailangan talaga doble ingat.”
