After Shaina Magdayao’s birthday celebration on ASAP last Sunday December 15, where Piolo Pascual joined her onstage, Philippine showbiz was abuzz with talk about the two. There have been rumors that the two are exclusively dating because they have been seen together on several occasions.
Shaina, however, denied this and said she doesn’t want to assume that it is anything but friendship. “Hindi po kami. Gano’n pa rin mabuting kaibigan pa rin siya sa akin. Actually, ayoko naman mag-assume sa pinapakita niya sa aking kabutihan, mahirap naman po yun and hindi ako ganong klaseng tao, but of course, (we’re) just very thankful sa friendship na binibigay niya sa akin.”
Despite talks of their closeness, Piolo explained that his son Inigo isn’t well acquainted with Shaina yet. “They get to see each other, [they’re] acquaintances, pero wala talagang usap. Siyempre yung bata would like to spend more time with me.
Shaina’s movie with Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay is one of the most popular entries to the Metro Manila Film Festival this year.
