Are Jessy Mendiola and JM De Guzman dating?


052711-jessy_main.jpgRecently, showbiz insiders have been saying that Jessy Mendiola and JM De Guzman are going steady since they have been spotted together several times already. But contrary to the circulating rumors, the former Sabel star claimed that they haven’t gone out yet except with their common friends. “We go out in groups eh. I met him sa taping ng Banana Split three weeks ago. Tapos merong nangyari sa Twitter na naglolokohan kami kasi ang tawag sa akin baby. Ewan ko, inaasar lang nila ako na baby girl or baby kahit sa Star Magic, yung handler ko and road manager ko ganun din. Kaya akala siguro nila may nangyayari sa amin ni JM,” said Jessy in an interview with Push.com.ph when she was launched as the newest Timex endorser last May 25.

When asked if JM has started courting her, Jessy explained that it’s too early to say what his real intentions are. Based on her previous experiences, she often gets confused when a guy is into her or not. “Yan nga ang problema sa mga boys e. Kasi hindi mo alam kung nanliligaw sa ’yo or hindi. May problem ako sa ganyan kasi may iba gusto makipag-friends tapos yun pala manliligaw pala. Yung iba naman ligaw agad tapos we end up being friends. Gusto ko manliligaw agad.”

But of all the guys who are romantically linked to her, she admitted that she’s attracted the most to JM. “Crush ko siya. Iba siya sa mga lalaking nakikita ko. Gusto ko sa kanya yung pagiging mysterious at tahimik niya tapos moreno pa. Oo nga, cute naman siya pero hindi ko alam kung approve siya sa inay ko. Siyempre gusto ko kapag nanligaw merong approval. Pero naloloka ako sa mga blind item! Saan nanggagaling yung mga yun,” she exclaimed with a laugh.

Jessy also refuted recent reports that she was seen with Gerald Anderson strolling inside a mall in Makati and with JM in his car. She insisted that she’s not the type who would deny an issue that has basis. “Unang-una, bakit ako makikisakay [sa car ni JM], may car naman ako. I don’t know anything about that. Ang dami-daming blind item ngayon. Meron yung nakita daw akong may kasama sa Greenbelt na kung sinu-sino. Tapos merong time naglalakad ako sa Glorietta kasama ko P.A. (personal assistant) ko [pero ang lumabas] kasama ko daw si Gerald. Sabi ko, ‘Ay, babae na pala si Gerald,’ kasi ang haba ng buhok ng PA ko. Kung totoo man, bakit ko itatago e nakita na kami ng isang tao. Pero hindi talaga e. Yun nga nagulat na lang ako  napagkamalan [pa si Gerald na kasama ko].”

Given a chance though, is she ready to enter a relationship at this point in her career? “Hanggang M.U. (mutual understanding) lang muna. Pero kung seryosong relasyon, huwag muna. Committed ako sa projects,” she stated.
