Derek Ramsay has heard the comments being thrown about his now-viral photo with Ellen Adarna and he’s not having it.
The photo in question was posted by Ruffa Gutierrez, who teased the two by writing “bagay” on the caption. Then much fuss were made over the fact that Derek and Ellen have dated each other’s exes, Angelica Panganiban and John Lloyd Cruz.
In an interview with PEP, the “No Other Woman” actor stated that their photo has nothing to do with that at all. “Ano ba ang dapat kong sabihin sa mga ganun? Hindi naman pumapasok sa isip ko ‘yung mga ganung klaseng bagay, sila [netizens] lang nag-iisip ng mga ganyan.”
“Ang tagal na namin ni Angelica na magkahiwalay,” he added. “Hindi ako nakikialam sa relationship ni Angelica at ni John Lloyd, or relationship ni Ellen at ni John Lloyd, or ni Ruffa.”
In 2009, Ruffa was also romantically linked to John Lloyd, but again, Derek maintained that they weren’t thinking about any of that. “That's their business. Walang pumapasok na ganyan sa utak ko na mga ganyan. When they mentioned that nga to me, parang natawa na lang ako na, ‘Wow! Pinagdidikit-dikit ba ng mga tao ang ganyang klase ng mga bagay?"
Speculations that Derek and Ellen are now dating have also popped up and Derek’s iconic “One More Chance” three-month rule scene with John Lloyd was used as a meme, saying that they have swapped partners.
“All we had was a dinner, we had a fun night,” Derek explained. “Gaya ng sinasabi ko sa iyo, people have their right to express their own opinion, but I really don't know how to react or say sa mga bagay na ganyan na pinagdidikit o nagpapalit-partners lang kami.”
And to everyone putting malice on their get-together: “Hindi naman kami ganyang klase ng tao,” said Derek.
