Ellen reveals true reason why she and John Lloyd split

FOLKS have been asking why John Lloyd Cruz and Ellen Adarna called it quits after they had a son named Elias, but no one was willing to talk. Now, in an interview with Preview Magazine, Ellen admits she’s the reason why they split.

“I had so many issues that I haven’t resolved and I was projecting it on him,” she says.

Obviously, she suffered from post-partum depression after giving birth to Elias on June 26, 2018 and this was aggravated by her dad’s passing away, making her feel she was stranded in a black hole. She then had to undergo a mental healing program in Bali, Indonesia.

“I now feel I’m in a very good place,” she continues. “I can say I’m 100% okay. I feel my environment has changed and my relationship with him has changed without me asking him to change. So I was just really the problem. How I viewed it, my thinking pattern was the problem.”

She and John Lloyd are now co-parenting their son. “My son needs him as much as he needs me. I see their relationship and I see how happy my son is when he is around. So that’s why I also have to work on myself. Kasi if I have animosity towards his father, damay pa ‘yung bata sa mga issues ko.”

Ellen now feels she’s well enough in coping with her personal problems and she has gone back to work. She’s now taping a new sitcom, “John and Ellen”, with John Estrada, to be shown on TV5. Co-starring with them are Ronaldo Valdez, Long Mejia, Faye Cuevas (who’s also the executive producer) and introducing Angelina Cruz, the daughter of Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano. It’s slated to start airing on the last week of January on TV5 and Cignal TV.
