Markus Paterson has spoken up on the rumors that he and Janella Salvador have called it quits.
In an interview with Cinemanews, the RISE artist opened up about his current state with Janella when asked about the status of their relationship.
“Our relationship status is definitely something that people are asking about. But as of now, I’m gonna let her do the talking on this status… but we’re both very good," Markus said.
“We have [a] very good relationship with each other. So let’s just leave it like that for now,” he added.
While he didn’t directly address the rumored split, Markus was happy to say that his heart is very much happy and at peace now.
“Ang puso ko ngayon? Ang masasabi ko lang, masaya. Magaan in a lot of ways," he said.
“I’ve come to terms [with] a lot of things this year so far. I just can’t wait to grow more and learn more about everything in life, my craft, relationship, fatherhood. I’m so young and I can’t wait to just become the best version of me,” he affirmed.
Breakup rumors surfaced when netizens noticed that the two have stopped posting about each other on social media. Their last post together was from January when they celebrated the New Year's Day.
However, they seemingly "debunked" the speculations when Markus greeted Janella on Mother's Day last May.
The “Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series” actress also posted a birthday greeting for the singer on her Instagram Stories last June 3, saying how she'll always root for his "success, well-being, and happiness."
Janella and Markus have a one-year-old son named Jude Trevor.
