Jake Cuenca has broken his silence amid rumors that he caused a commotion during the recently concluded Star Magic Ball while Jericho Rosales was supposedly giving his acceptance speech for an award he received.
Speaking to entertainment reporters on Monday, Cuenca said it’s not true although he admitted that he had been drinking.
“Definitely I had way too much fun. Medyo naparami ako ng inom so inalalayan ako ng handler ko, ng dalawang road manager ko. Medyo nag-mukha lang na may commotion pero in reality, I was having way too much fun and they just wanted me to go up and rest,” he said.
Cuenca said he was also able to talk to Rosales.
“Wala talaga. Nangyari lang sa ganung instance pero nag-usap kami ni Echo, walang kaproble-problema. It just happened in an instance na nagsasalita siya at doon na 'yung nag-decide sila na paakyatin na ako,” he said.
Cuenca also appealed to people not to misinterpret his closeness to his “Pasion de Amore” co-star Ellen Adarna, who was also at the ball.
“Hindi ko ide-deny 'yung fact na magkaibigan kami ni Ellen talaga. Walang wala. Kung meron akong katumbas, kung may babaeng version ko, si Ellen 'yun. Magkasama kami, me, Mark Nicdao and Ellen. We are really good friends so sana huwag na bigyan ng malisya ng tao 'yun because there’s nothing,” he said.
“Sa hinaba-haba ng tinakbo ng ‘Pasion de Amor,’ if I ever found anyone attractive, it’s always Arci (Munoz). So I just want to put that out there,” he added.
Meanwhile, Cuenca shared that he is now in the process of moving on after he and model Sara Grace Kelley broke up again just recently.
“I’ve always said, hanggang ngayon naman, she will always have a special place in my heart but I have to move forward and she’s doing the same thing. I’ll always respect her and never forget the memories I spent with her,” he said.
Cuenca said he is just grateful that he has a lot of things which keep him busy lately.
“Matagal 'yung process [of moving on]. I’m still going through the process. It’s still hard. Pero salamat sa Diyos may trabaho. Kesa nagmumukmok ka sa bahay or lumalabas ka trying to do things, at least nabubuhos mo lahat ng energy mo sa isang magandang bagay which is work,” he said.
Cuenca is part of an upcoming ABS-CBN series “Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin,” starring Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson.
Aside from the new TV show, Cuenca has also recently finished two movies and he is in the process of producing his first film for the Cinemalaya Film Festival.
