Actor John Estrada broke his silence after Kapuso actor Derek Ramsay announced cutting his ties with him.
In his YouTube vlog, August 11, Ogie Diaz shared a conversation between him and John via text, revealing the actor’s answer from the statement of Derek.
John has been good friends with Derek before the issue, even playing a huge part in having the latter meet the love of his life, Ellen.
“6 years nga yung friendship namin pero ganun talaga… Tinuring ko siyang parang kapatid ko pero kung ganun lang tingin niya sa pagkakaibigan namin e wala na akong magagawa dun. All is good,” relayed Diaz.
Earlier on Tuesday, August 10, in an interview with Ogie, Derek made it clear that he does not want to be ‘friends’ with John anymore.
“Hindi ko siya kaaway. Hindi ko siya kaibigan. He’s no longer a friend of mine. I just don’t want to associate myself with John.”
His message to John was this: “I just want to avoid any negativity, I’m entering the next chapter of my life…I wish you well bro, but that friendship is definitely out the door.”
The rift between the two was caused by the fiasco involving Ellen Adarna, Derek’s fiancée.
The sexy actress was humiliated after she was alleged to have walked out of the set of John En Ellen.
Ellen and her management and Ramsay denied the claim, but unfortunately, the damage has already been done.
That is when Ramsay realized that “enough is enough.”
Meanwhile, the sexy actress, by her own choice, is no longer part of John En Ellen.
But is it really over?
Hours after the vlog of Ogie was uploaded on YouTube, the two had exchanged comments after the supposed “friendship over.”
In an Instagram post of John En Ellen director Willy Cuevas on August 10, there was a conversation between the two former friends.

First to comment was John who wrote: “Hanep sa kanta yan kumbrader. Parang alam ko kung kanino mo ibibigay yan…”
Derek replied to John by saying, “Hahahahahaha!!! Let me know if kailangan n’yo mag-cameo ako ng Libre Para sa’yo.”
Though John did not reply, Ogie believes that it would be the start of their renewed friendship.
“Feeling ko ito na yung simula ng kanilang pagkakabati,” expressed Ogie.
