Coleen Garcia admitted that she is still not comfortable with the massive attention that she is drawing from the media and the public after Billy Crawford confessed on national TV that he has feelings for her. She also revealed that she becomes really shy every time the TV host-singer shows her sweet gestures on It’s Showtime. “I get shy because I am a very shy person, people know that,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
On the chances of them committing to a relationship anytime soon, Coleen remarked that it’s too early to tell, saying, “I’m just giving everything time.” She stressed that she doesn’t want to rush things between her and Billy at this point. “I’m just taking everything slowly because there's really no need to rush. There’s no need to jump into anything [immediately],” she stated.
After Billy revealed that he is courting Coleen, the latter received negative comments as it fueled rumors that she was the reason behind Billy’s breakup with Nikki Gil. With all the furor, Coleen said she tries to maintain a positive disposition and focus on those who stood by her side and did not misjudge her. She extended her gratitude to her supporters, “Thank you so much for the support. Thank you for the never-ending love that you guys give me and I love you all so much also.”
In January, Billy revealed on Buzz ng Bayan the real score between him and Coleen. “Yes, nililigawan ko. She is not my girlfriend yet, and I would love for her to be,” he said.
In the same interview, Billy clarified that the It’s Showtime darling had nothing to do on why he called it quits with Nikki. “I kept my mouth shut. I didn’t talk. I think that was my fault. But ako, pinanindigan ko 'yung sa akin and kung ano ang alam ko, and Coleen is definitely not part of my past relationship at all.”
