JM De Guzman and Jessy Mendiola insist that they're better off as friends


081011-jessyjm_main.jpgAfter months of being romantically linked to each other, it seems that JM de Guzman and Jessy Mendiola are no longer an item. In a recent interview with Push.com.ph, Jessy revealed that she had a talk with JM where she told him that they’re better off as friends. As it is, they’re both busy with their rising showbiz careers and a relationship would just stand in the way.

Ewan ko, baka busy siya sa work. Tsaka ako, ayoko muna talagang mag-boyfriend. Sinabi ko sa kanya na talagang ayoko munang mag-boyfriend. Sabi niya, ’Ah, o sige, friends na muna tayo,’ ganon. Hindi ko nga alam kung nanligaw. Hindi naman nanligaw, nakipag-friends lang kasi the same kami ng friends eh,” said the former Sabel star.

But JM claimed that Jessy didn’t have to turn him down since he’s not courting her in the first place. “Hindi, wala, nag-propose ba ako? Hindi naman. Para namang nag-propose ako. Nagsabi ako sa kanya na nagagandahan ako sa ’yo and I like you, pero hanggang dun lang.” JM further explained that it’s not because one of them got attracted to someone else. “Wala namang nagyari to begin with, kaya wala namang dapat isipin. Sa ngayon hindi na kami nakakapag-communicate. Pero dati nakakapag-tweet lang,” stated JM in an interview with Push.com.ph on the set of Mula Sa Puso.

While it’s true that they enjoyed a few kilig moments in the past, JM realized that entering a relationship with a fellow artist is not something to be taken lightly. “Inaamin ko naman na nagkagusto ako kay Jessy. Pero sa sitwasyon ko ngayon at sa buhay ng artista, hindi madali ang pagpasok sa isang relasyon. Unless kung beterano ka na, or matagal na siguro sa industriya. Pero sa ngayon ayaw ko muna.

When asked how he feels about recent reports that Azkal member Paolo Pascual has expressed his admiration towards Jessy, he simply replied, “Talaga? Wala, okay lang. Single naman siya. Wala naman akong hurt feelings. Trabaho muna ang dapat atupagin.”
