On October 2016, ABS-CBN announced in a press statement that John Lloyd Cruz will be taking a break from showbiz to attend to personal matters. No word yet has been released on his return.
Currently, John Lloyd Cruz is still on his indefinite leave but is seen most of the time hanging out with his rumored girlfriend and former co-star Ellen Adarna in Cebu. Last 2017, they traveled places together and then went home for Christmas wherein JLC joined the family portrait of the Adarnas, seemingly signifying that he’s part of their family already.
