Repost: Interview with Ricky Lo Confirms Trouble Between Janella Salvador and Elmo Magalona, ElNella, No More

By Ricky Lo

Keeping distance, growing apart.

With those four words, Janella Salvador summed up her relationship with Elmo Magalona in an interview with Funfare, one month after that incident in which she sustained bruises in her arm and leg (photos shown during the interview).

“It was not an accident,” Janelle finally broke her silence letting her mom, Jenine Desiderio, initially speak for her (mostly on social media), answering what “the other camp” (Janella’s words) was posting against her. “I decided to speak up now because I want to stop the lies,” added Janella with conviction.

That “incident” happened when Janella and Elmo got into an argument after attending a party hosted by Janella’s friend. Elmo reportedly had one drink too many and Janella admitted that she did drink, too… “Social drinking,” she qualified, recalling that she fought back by slapping Elmo because she felt “disrespected.”

“It was not the first time that he hurt me,” confessed Janella. “The first time happened months earlier. He claimed that he didn’t remember what he did, maybe because he had a drink, and he asked for forgiveness and I gave him a chance. I told him, ‘Next time, don’t bring yourself to the point that you will hurt someone.’ He promised naman that he wouldn’t do it again.”

Putting no label to their relationship, all Janella said was that they were “exclusively dating” and “going out,” although she dismissed rumors that “sleeping over” was involved. Janella has been living independently at a house that mom Jenine bought from Janella’s savings. Known as ElNella, the loveteam has done a TV show and a movie together but after that incident, they were told during a meeting with Star Magic’s Mariolle Alberto that from now on, they would have to work separately (after a project in November that was closed before that incident).

Janella admitted that she has stopped seeing a psychiatrist who had told her that she’s “feeling well,” but she decided to resume the session two weeks after that incident. Nothing “mental” about that, she clarified.

“I know that Elmo has also been seeing a psychiatrist,” added Janella. “He’s seeking professional help. I support him on that. It’s good that he recognized the problem and he’s addressing it.”

In the next breath, she explained, “My purpose in speaking now is not to shame him or to put him down; I just want to correct the lies being spread against me and my mom, and to let the truth out. I thought long and hard before I decided to speak out. I gave (Elmo) the chance to speak up and own up to what he did but it seems that somebody is stopping him from doing it.”

During the interview, Janella said that she has stopped wearing the “friendship necklace” given to her by Elmo.

“For two years,” she continued, “I focused on Elmo and myself. This time, I am giving more attention to myself. He hurt me and I cannot, can never tolerate that.”

She said that she’s happy that her relationship with her mom is improving. They used to bump heads…that is, if you believe Jenine’s soc-med postings to heart.

“We are fixing things,” assured Janella. “We are talking. I may not agree with the extreme way she expresses her feelings but I realized that her intentions are good. At the end of the day, I now know that my mom is there for me.”

Asked pointblank if she still loves Elmo, Janella was quiet for a while and said, “I did say na love ko siya. Hindi naman ganoon kabilis mawawala ‘yon.”

(Note: Funfare texted Elmo Magalona’s mom Pia Arroyo on her two phone numbers if she wanted to air Elmo’s side but she hadn’t replied as of presstime Monday afternoon, Oct. 22. This space is open for whatever she or Elmo wants to say.)

  1. Disappointing yung mga nababasa ko na si Janella pa yung sinisisi. Some people were insinuating na hindi naman daw siya sasaktan kung wala siyang ginawa. Whatever their argument was about, it's NEVER right to initiate physical violence. Yung iba pang fans ng LT nila sinasabi na bigyan daw ulit ng chance kasi sayang naman daw nabuild nilang career together. WHAT THE HECK?! Nagkakasakitan na kilig pa rin nila yung iniintindi??

    1. Kaya nga e. Ang selfish lang. Kung sa kanila kaya mangyari yun baka maya't maya ang posting sa socmed. Di lang pala once nangyari. Pasalamat pa nga mga fans at binigyan ng 2nd chance at nanahimik lang si Janella.

    3. there will never be a valid reason for abusing someone physically. and being in a realtionship with someone doesn't give you a right, neither.

  2. grabedad ung victim blaming sa social media.. naawa ako lalo kay janella. yang ganyang mentality na yung biktima pa yung sisihin at palalabasin na masama, that's the very reason kaya some people especially women just choose to stay quiet and keep it to themselves.

    3. In the Philippines, victim shaming seems cultural. Transgressions are quickly forgiven and forgotten. So many look the other way, accepting and even justifying men's infidelity and even, abuse or crime. I really wonder why. Women are not at all empowered and many drag other women down.

  6. If this is true, then good for her for standing up. But let’s wait for the other side to air their story if they want to and let’s not be quick to judge. Remember, Elmo’s prior relationships had always been with other showbiz personalities and this issue never happened with any of them. In fact, one of his exes nga manager pa rin mom ni Elmo until now.

    4. A. It also happened to them but decided toto nev speak about any after their break-up.

      B. It never happened to them. But that doesn't mean it also never happened with Janella. People change with age and Elmo might have developed the habit after previous relationships.

      C. Elmo might have had the habit even before but he knew how to control.

    3. Hindi pa rin dapat nilalabas sa SocMed. Yun ang mali ni Mader. Sabi nga ni Janella, disagree siya the way she handled their feud/misunderstanding. Reaching out pa rin ang importante. Maraming paraan than social media.

      Delete
    4. @1:49 Maybe because social media is her last resort. She might have talked to Janella in person but she didn't listen. Binigyan pa niya ng chance si guy right? Baka nga sinabihan na ni momsie niya na layuan pero ayaw makinig kaya ayun. Di natin alam ang effort na ginawa ni mother sa kanya, She was only trying to protect her child. Natural lang sa Ina ang magalit kasi ayaw nila mapahamak ang anak. ^_^

  10. Hindi ko man like yung way ng nanay nitong si Janella, I understand kasi nanay eh. Talak forevs si mudra pero all for her daughter's kapakanan naman. Sabi nga nila may tinatawag na "mother's instinct" kaya siguro ganun nalang pagtutol niya kay Elmo noon. Pero sana after this mag-agree yung mag-ina na stop na yung washing of dirty laundry online lalo na family issues.

  12. It takes a lot of strength to speak out and admit that you are a victim of physical violence and I'm glad she's seeking professional help. I was in abusive relationship before, and it really takes a toll on you physically, mentally and emotionally. I had to go through therapy for years just to get my life back together. Stay strong, Janella.

  13. It's quite sad that people are blaming Janella for what happened. Yes, she had a poor judgement but no one deserves to be physically abused no matter what. She never asked for it to happen to her. Si Elmo ang dapat sinisisi niyo because he can't keep his hands to himself. Malapit nang mag-2019, victim blaming pa rin kayo. Kadiri at nakakatakot way of thinking niyo.

  35. Minsan ang mga fans ng LT dapat mag-isip din. Gusto kasi nila Real ang LT & dapat magkatuluyan pero hindi nila alam kung ano ang totoong pagkatao ng mga idols nila. Meron din silang pinagdadaanan sa buhay. So, pressured ang mga young celebs sa demand ng fans & they stick with their partner kahit toxic na. Management should do something sa ganitong situation kasi kawawa ang buhay ng mga talents nila.

  48. It's really rough getting out of a toxic, abusive relationship. It's good that she got out early enough and that she is empowered. Her mum's support is everything. Hope fans take pause and stop pushing love teams too ardently. There's a lot more behind the scenes and public image doesn't equate with reality.

  51. Hindi ko kinakampihan si Elmo kasi for me ang lalaki dapat wag manakit pero may exception din dahil madami din mga babae na nananabunot, nangangagat at nananampal ng mister or bf at hindi din tama yun. Mas maganda kung parehong hindi violent. Mag hiwalay na lang ng tahimik kung di makatiis sa ugali ng isat isa.

It will not be the same again and they cannot entrust janella to elmo ever again.learn your lesson, janella, and focus on your own strength and capabilities..you are one of the best and most talented in your generation wag mo sayangin ang God-given talent na yan.
