MANILA,Philippines- Actor-dancer Rayver Cruz on Thursday admitted that he is the reason behind the controversial rift involving sultry actress Cristine Reyes and Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, the 21-year old actor confessed that he told Reyes about Geronimo's remarks during ASAP XV dress rehearsals.
“Oo, ako naman kasi yung nagsabi talaga kay Cristine and kasi gusto ko lang maging honest sa tao. Sa tingin ko, wala namang mali ‘dun and wala naman akong ginagawang masama,” said Cruz.
Though he refused to give further details, Cruz defended himself, “Sa tingin ko naman kasi ito yung tama kaya ginawa ko. Alam ko na ito yung makakabuti sa lahat.”
When asked about the real score between him and Reyes, Cruz replied, “Actually napakarami ko pong sinagot kay Tito Boy and nahuli niya po ako and para sa akin mas maganda kung abangan niyo na lang po at panoorin sa The Buzz kasi sinagot ko lahat ng tinanong sa akin.”
On Sunday, Reyes took to the microblogging site Twitter to vent her anger against a female “ASAP XV” co-host. Reyes did not reveal her name, but she hinted that the object of her fury is a "drama princess" in the entertainment industry with a "goody image."
Suspicions that she was referring to the Box Office Queen were confirmed after the latter’s personal assistant, Anna Dasig, spoke up to defend the actress-singer.
Also on Twitter, Dasig said Reyes shouldn’t have given meaning to Geronimo’s statement about how a man is always being chased by a sexy woman if he is a good dancer.
Based on the sultry actress's tweets, it was that remark that caught her ire.
Showbiz insiders said Geronimo made the remark during the dress rehearsals for the musical variety show “ASAP XV.” The show's mainstays – John Prats, Gab Valenciano, and Rayver Cruz -- were reportedly rehearsing a dance number.
Reyes, who was once voted as FHM’s sexiest woman, went steady with Cruz.
Cruz was linked to Geronimo, lead star of “A Very Special Love” and “You Changed My Life,” but they both denied any romantic relationship.
