MANILA, Philippines – Box Office Queen and Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo has lauded John Lloyd Cruz for admitting his relationship with Shaina Magdayao.

Geronimo, who was once rumored to be dating Cruz, noted that it is painful for any woman to be publicly denied by her boyfriend.

The singer’s statement has prompted the entertainment press to tease her, but she quickly maintained that Cruz, her leading man in romantic-comedy films “A Very Special Love” and sequel “You Changed My Life,” is just a friend.

She also shot down any claim that they are more than friends. In addition, Geronimo said she harbors no ill feelings toward Cruz.

Rumor has it that Cruz wooed the actress-singer while they were doing their movie, only to stop when the filming was over. Cruz and Geronimo have repeatedly denied the rumor.

Geronimo and Cruz, hailed Box Office Queen and King, will top-bill another movie now that the singer has completed filming “Hating Kapatid” alongside Judy Ann Santos.

“Hating Kapatid” is expected to be Santos’s last film before she takes a long break from show business to focus on her family.
