Janella Salvador has admitted that she's been seeking help from a psychiatrist after allegedly being physically hurt by onscreen loveteam Elmo Magalona who she was "exclusively dating".

In an interview with Philippine Star, the young actress-singer shared she was mistreated by Elmo in two separate incidents. “The first time happened months earlier. He claimed that he didn’t remember what he did, maybe because he had a drink, and he asked for forgiveness and I gave him a chance. I told him, ‘Next time, don’t bring yourself to the point that you will hurt someone.’ He promised naman that he wouldn’t do it again."

Meanwhile, the second incident reportedly took place during an argument after attending a party. This time, she fought back by slapping the actor.

Janella explained she's not speaking up to "shame" Elmo. "I just want to correct the lies being spread against me and my mom (Jenine Desiderio), and to let the truth out," she said. "I thought long and hard before I decided to speak out. I gave (Elmo) the chance to speak up and own up to what he did but it seems that somebody is stopping him from doing it.”

The "Mahal Kita Pero" singer also revealed she's been going to a psychiatrist and so has Elmo: “He’s seeking professional help. I support him on that. It’s good that he recognized the problem and he’s addressing it.”

But a reunion between the two seems unlikely for now. “For two years, I focused on Elmo and myself. This time, I am giving more attention to myself. He hurt me and I cannot, can never tolerate that."
