Jake Cuenca finally broke his silence to the press on the rumors he walked out of the Pasion De Amor cast guesting on Gandang Gabi Vice.
At the press launch of his new teleserye, the actor was quick to admit he did walk out of the taping but it was with a valid reason.
His ex-girlfriend, Chanel Olive Thomas, was in the audience as one of the candidates of Miss Earth Philippines promoting the pageant.
“Nagulat ako. Siyempre bago tinawag ang mga pangalan namin, pagsilip ko sa pintuan, nakita ko ‘yung ex ko. Nandoon kasi lahat ng candidate’s ng Miss Earth. I just didn’t want to put my ex-girlfriend in that situation,” he shared.
He further added, “Hindi sa hindi ko kaya. Naging gentleman lang ako na ayaw ko ilagay sa alanganin ‘yung tao, lalo na moment niya ngayon na mag Miss Earth,” the actor added.
Jake admitted he approached Vice Ganda and apologized on the situation. He said the comedian understood where he was coming from.
“Nag-apologize ako kay Vice. Wala namang harm done kasi alam niya kung bakit ko ginawa ‘yun. At the end of the day, nakatulog ako ng maayos kasi I did what a gentleman should have done in that situation,” he said.
