As the controversies unfold on celebrity couple Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano's relationship, when talent manager Alfie Lorenzo recently said in an interview that Montano was kicked out of their house by Cruz.

But according to columnist Dolly Ann Carvajal, known as Cesar Montano's best friend belied reports that Cruz asked her husband to leave their house after she discovered that a number of her gifts are now in the hands of aspiring actress Krista Miller.

In an interview, she admitted it is true that Montano is now staying in a hotel but denied that it’s because Cruz asked him to leave their home.

“It was blown out of proportion. Kasi nagra-rush siya (Montano) ng Alfredo Lim story na may playdate na, February 27. So he has to stay in a hotel doon sa Manila area,” she explained.

“Natiyempo lang siguro na pumutok ang balita. Siguro kailangan din magpalamig. Pero 'yung palayas, knowing Sunshine, siguro hindi naman niya magagawa iyon,” she added.

She still hoping that the couple could resolve this matter.

“Siguro may tampuhan pero not to the extent na maghihiwalay. They've come this far, 12 years [of marriage] and three kids. They've been through worse... Bigyan na lang natin sila ng respeto, privacy to sort things out and in God's time a-answer-in din niya iyan,” she said.

“Natural naman iyon sa mag-asawa. Alam naman natin na si Buboy is playful by nature so minsan nami-misread siguro ng babae ang signals. Tapos si Sunshine, being very emotional, na-provoke siya. I know when the time is right, magsasalita rin sila. But the way that I know them, sa dami nang pinagdaanan nilang bagyo, hindi isang starlet lang ang talagang kayang paghiwalayin sila,” she said.
