Baste Duterte Breaks His Silence on Ellen Adarna-John Lloyd Relationship

The relationship of Baste Duterte and Ellen Adarna was no secret. Though Baste and Ellen did not confirm it, the latter’s posts on social media and President Duterte’s pronouncements about his objection to the relationship were enough. Now that Ellen has moved on to John Lloyd Cruz, what can Baste Duterte say about it?

In an exclusive interview with PEP, the president’s youngest son sounded unaffected. Past is past. There is nothing anyone can do about it.

“Kung masaya siya, okey na ako doon,” Baste Told PEP. “Nangyari lang talaga yun. Ewan ko… Alam mo yung buhay, kapag nangyari na, nangyari na.”

He told PEP that’s just how he is – a very private person. He does not reveal much about himself because he doesn’t feel the need to do so. He values his privacy and this is also the reason why he doesn’t post anything about himself on social media. 

Besides, Baste thinks there isn’t really nothing special about him that people would want to know. He is just an ordinary person who happens to be the son of the president of the Philippines.

“Aside from me being the president’s son, there’s nothing really special about this,” he said. “It’s just like a guy that happened to have a father who’s a president. Just that’s it. Pero sa akin, wala. There’s nothing to really celebrate.”

Posting on social media is not his ‘trip’, the young Duterte revealed. And he thinks social media is not the right venue to really know him.

“Mas more on gusto ko yung tao na nakakausap ko intimately. Gusto ko yung ganoon,” Baste revealed. “Ayoko yung ipapakilala ko ang sarili ko. I promote myself on social media to show people na I am this, I am that.”

“They will never get the real me unless they talk to me,” he added.
