DJ Loonyo has developed romantic feelings for Ivana Alawi.
The online sensation made the revelation after netizens accused a non-showbiz girl supposedly caused his falling out with Ivana.
In an Instagram Live broadcast, DJ Loonyo said he and Ivana became close after the prank he joined as the actress’ pretend boyfriend.
Since then, netizens have dubbed their tandem “Loovana.”
“Nung nag-message na si Ivana, ‘Ganito, ganyan… maganda ‘yung challenges mo.’ The feeling was really different. Kahit nagme-message kami ni Claire (name of the non-showbiz girl), the feeling was super different. I can’t understand the feeling — ‘yung kilig, ‘yung pakiramdam,” he said.
“After that boyfriend prank, talagang nag-uusap kami araw-araw. She was consistently helping me with a lot of things na hindi ko alam. She taught me a lot of things especially with YouTube.”
DJ Loonyo said Ivana became his top priority.
“She’s very special to me. To a point na kapag nagme-message siya, automatic talagang masayang-masaya ako mag-reply. Kahit ultimo one line lang message niya, ang haba ng reply ko sa kanya. You can’t hide what you feel,” he said.
He dismissed notion he’s just using Ivana for fame.
“I never used Ivana. Not even a single minute na intention na gagamitin ko si Ivana. Kapal ko naman. Never ako nanggamit ng tao. Para what? Para sumikat or para makuha ‘yung gusto ko? Never ko inisip na ginagamit ‘yun. Alam ni Ivana ‘yan.”
Although they became close, he said it is unfortunate they no longer talk to each other as much as before because of issues being thrown at him.
DJ Loonyo cleared Claire’s name.
“For Claire, I’m sorry to drag your name into this. I’m sorry that people dragged your name because of me. And for Ivana, for causing a lot of trouble in you. Know that I just love you. Know that you’re really special to me. Know that you’re really important to me,” he said.
