In a special report by Tonight With Boy Abunda, Ellen Adarna answered all the hard questions about her controversial drunken incident at the 9th Star Magic Ball on September 12. When asked if she was indeed drunk that night, Ellen truthfully replied, “I was drunk. Yes, I was drunk. Basta, ‘di ako wasak na wasak. Nakainom.”
Ellen also denied ever leaving her date and Pasion de Amor leading man Ejay Falcon that night, “No, that’s not true. You can also ask Ejay if you want. It’s not true.”
But Ellen did admit to holding hands with fellow Kapamilya actor Paulo Avelino. “Yes, that was true. I grabbed Paulo’s hand because masakit na paa ko.” Ellen shrugged off rumors of her flirting with Paulo, clarifying that the two have been longtime friends, “No, no, no. Of course not! Matagal na kaming friends ni Paulo. We’re just really friends.”
Ellen then squashed all hopes of her and Ejay ever being an item: “I’m actually dating someone right now [who’s] non-showbiz. So please [stop with the rumors].”
Ellen gave a final statement being the true to her uninhibited ways, saying, “For me, wala naman akong ginawang mali kasi wala naman akong sinaktang tao. And I was just there to have fun. It was a party.”
In the same report, Ejay continued to defend his leading lady (and confirmed that he and Ellen weren’t a thing HUHU). As for the people who have been questioning Ellen's actions that night, Ejay says, “Sobrang OK kami [ni Ellen] sa trabaho. Tsaka ‘di naman kami [ni Ellen], so bakit parang ‘yung mga tao big deal sa kanila ‘yung hindi kami magkasama madalas ‘dun sa ball? Alam ko naman ‘yung mga kasama niya mga kaibigan niya rin. Kampante ako nakikita siya kasama mga kaibigan niya.”
