Of course, Sebastian “Baste” Duterte would get asked about former lover Ellen Adarna’s relationship to John Lloyd Cruz.
There have been a lot of rumors going around about the couple and all the presidential son had to say about them is, “Kung masaya siya, okay na ako doon. Nangyari lang talaga ‘yun. Ewan ko… Alam mo 'yung buhay, kapag nangyari na, nangyari na.”
He made the comment in an interview with PEP, where he also said that he’s pretty much used to his name being dragged by intrigue since he grew up being an offspring of no less than President Rodrigo Duterte himself.
“Alam ko naman ‘yun kasi lumaki ako sa politics talaga. Tapos 'yung tatay ko, nung lumaki ako, mayor na siya [ng Davao City], nasa politics na. So, ‘yung mga intriga-intriga, wala na sa akin,” he shared.
You won’t see him fight off rumors either, because he’s just not about that. He doesn’t care what people say and he wants them to know that.
“I do not want to defend myself. Kung masyado ninyo ako pinag-uusapan, kung masyado kayo naiirita o naba-bother sa ginagawa ko, bakit hindi na lang kayo… just try to be me. Gawin niyo na lang para malaman ninyo kung bakit ko ginagawa 'yung mga ginagawa ko,” said Baste.
