The model turned actress Ellen Adarna and actor John Lloyd Cruz went on an adventure out of the country and landed at one of the beaches of Casablanca, Morocco. Well, why Casablanca? Let me give you a sneak pick of Casablanca. Casablanca with its incredible crafted buildings the place is consider a hotbed of fascinating architecture.

Then suddenly a voice that resembles John Lloyds can be heard in the video saying “Dun tayo, oh, para malapit sa beach (We should be there, it’s near the beach)”. They even shared that they cooked food together in the place.
This moment that they were spotted hanging out together again the rumors will ignite again. The relationship of the two gained negative reactions of some fans that they yearn for John Lloyd to end up with one of his leading ladies. Well we know where the objections of the fans come from because the two seems to opposite. John Lloyd had typically projected the wholesome boy next door image, while Ellen is known for being a famous party girl. But It seems like it was Ellen Adarna who took away his heart and blew him away. Some may not see the brighter side of the alleged relationship but there are those who point out positivity. They supported the actor’s choice that is to be happy. Even the actor admitted on his Instagram post that Ellen really did something to his soul and he’ll always be grateful.

John Lloyd will be taking a break outside the country and will return to them after his leave of absence.
This couple are sure in romantic relationship due to their numerous romantic post on Instagram. Like the photos of the two hugging each other while sailing, their photos together walking on the beach while holding each other’s hand, their sweet photo together lying on the bed while Ellen is kissing his cheeks but still they continue denying the speculations that both of them are not yet ready to enter into new romance, after both parties break up last year. John Lloyd last relationship was with Angelica Panganiban and on the other hand Ellen Adarna broke up with her boyfriend, the presidential son Sebastian “Baste” Duterte. However the said rumors will continuously fuelled because the two are always seen together out in the public.
