Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 6) — Popular actor John Lloyd Cruz is taking a breather from the limelight.

"ABS-CBN and John Lloyd Cruz have agreed for him to take an indefinite leave of absence to attend to personal matters," the network's Corporate Communications head Kane Errol Choa announced on Friday.

Choa said the 34-year-old actor will return to his home network after his leave, but did not give a timeframe.

"John Lloyd will be taking a break outside the country and will return to ABS-CBN after his leave of absence," he said.

Last month, Cruz was the subject of online buzz as videos of him and his "Home Sweetie Home" co-star Ellen Adarna went viral.

The videos showed the two in a Cebu getaway, wildly singing and dancing with their friends.

The actor had apologized for the videos, but said he did not regret doing it.

Cruz made the rounds of social media once again after posting another photo with Adarna cuddling up to him.
