John Lloyd ditches project and gets wasted

KRIS AQUINO'S camp is said to be sore at John Lloyd Cruz for refusing to play the young Ninoy Aquino in the dramatization of her parents' love story in "Maalaala Mo Kaya". He was replaced by Piolo Pascual, with Bea Alonzo as the young Cory Cojuangco. They say Lloydie made a mistake in turning it down as it's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play a historical character like Ninoy. They even berated his political beliefs and accused of him of not loving his country.

The truth is John Lloyd is really a better choice as Ninoy and Cory were both in their early 20s when they got married. Piolo is already 33 years old, so he's quite old for the role. But they should not be annoyed with Lloydie just because he rejected the role. It's still his right to make a choice and we live in a free country, after all. What Lloydie should be bothered about is the persistent news that he's often seen drunk these days. He has admitted before that he used to drink much but he had already stopped it.

The most recent report is that Raymond Gutierrez saw him so drunk at Fiamma Bar in Makati that he couldn't even stand straight. When he informed his Ate Ruffa about it, who's being linked to Lloydie, she said to Lloydie in her Twitter account: "Sayang ka, sayang lahat ng blessings na bigay ng Diyos sa'yo. Mga taong namamalasakit sa'yo, binalewala mo. I only fight for someone who's worth it. If not, then goodbye and good riddance!"

Wonder what John Lloyd, who's also alleged as the reason why John Prats broke up with Shaina Magdayao, can say about this?
