Derek On Angelica's Instagram Photo With Lloydy: 'Let's Be Happy For Her'

MANILA, Philippines - Derek Ramsay appears to have truly moved on from his split with Angelica Panganiban, having merely shrugged off news of his ex-girlfriend posting a picture of herself and actor John Lloyd Cruz on Instagram recently, seemingly confirming ongoing rumors about them being an item.

"I don't know if they are together but Angel looks happy. Lets be happy for her," he simply tweeted after some fans asked him about the photo.

The actor-model was quick to defend Panganiban with some fans labeling her a "cheater."

"Pls don't be like that. Lets be happy for Angel. She isn't a cheater," Ramsay posted.

Ramsay confirmed his breakup with Panganiban last May. He went on to plead for people to not make it an issue.

"People fall in and out of love everyday; it's not a crime, it's just a fact of life," he said. "Let's move on."

The uncouple was together for five years.

Prior to Ramsay's announcement, rumors about him having called it quits with Panganiban were already being circulated widely. Not a few wags have pointed at Cruz to have supposedly caused the falling out as he purportedly romanced Panganiban during a weeklong film shoot in Vietnam.

In an interview on "The Buzz" last June, Angelica neither confirmed nor denied the issue but simply said, "Mahirap bigyan ng ibig sabihin, bigyan ng kulay. Kung ako magbibigay ng kulay, baka mag-iba. Hayaan muna natin. Hindi ko alam kung anong mayroon bukas."

At one point, she vowed, "Kung magiging special siya [Cruz] o e 'di makikita niyo, malalaman niyo."

Fans now deem the Instagram picture as the actress' long promised confirmation of the romance even as Panganiban herself almost gave it all away by tweeting thereafter: "never ako nag deny."

Cruz, on the other hand, continues to keep his silence on the matter.
