After his controversial statement in the first episode of the new video podcast “Boys After Dark” wherein he warned fellow celebrities “never to f***ing date someone in the industry,” Markus Paterson clarified what he had said and whether he was on good terms with his ex, Janella Salvador.
“Going back to episode one and the recent backlash of that, I would like to keep this short and sweet,” the young actor said at the start of the video podcast’s third episode, “WTF Moments and Deep Regrets In Life.”
“If I could go back in time and change what I said, honestly, I would not. I stand by what I said because what I said comes from my past, from my truth, and that’s my honest opinion about my future potential relationships,” he stated. “Secondly, huwag kayong mag-assume. Okay? Let’s not jump to conclusions or anything because you kinda are.”
He then assured everyone that he “respects” Janella and will always “love her.”
“Thirdly, I respect Janella to the utmost of my ability, the woman that she has become, the mother that she has become. I will love her forever. She has given me the best gift of my life,” he added.
He brought her up again towards the end of the episode to drive home the fact that they are still good friends and are focused on co-parenting their son Jude.
“Me and Janella, we are good. We are friends. We are co-parenting because, obviously, our priority is Jude. She’s an amazing mother and I’m trying to be an amazing father,” he expressed.”The fact that she’s the one that gave him to me, I will never not love her. Maybe not romantically anymore but she will always be a huge part of my heart.
Markus cohosts “Boys After Dark” with his fellow male Rise Artists Studio artists Anthony Jennings, Jae Miranda, Gello Marquez, and Aljon Mendoza.
