Enrique Gil denied rumors that he was going out with Kapamilya actress Bangs Garcia. Stirring speculations were Enrique and Bangs’s photos in Japan which made rounds online.
In an interview with Enrique at the Mirabella press conference, he explained that they simply bumped into each other in Japan. “Nagkita kami sa Tokyo, may show siya doon. Ako naman for vacation lang. Kasama niya yung boss niya, yung naghahanap rin ng trabaho for me. Sabi niya, ‘Enrique, since andito ka, gusto mo rumaket ka na rin? Bukas may show kami.’ Sabi ko sa mom ko, ‘Sige, daan na lang kami at may pang-shopping pa ako,’” he shared adding that, “Doon nagsimula iyon at sana matapos na ang tsismis about Bangs Garcia.”
Have they seen each other again after they got back to Manila? “After nun, wala… minsan pag nadadaan lang sa ASAP, that’s it,” he shared.
The 21-year-old Mirabella star, who recently revealed that he’s still positive that someone special would come in his life eventually, underscored that he hopes to focus more on his love team than anything else as of the moment. “Wala pa talaga. Siguro when the time comes, dun ako magko-commit. Pero love life, love team muna saka yung work na ginagawa ko. Pero pag dumating talaga, siyempre open naman ako diyan,” he said.
The King of the Gil is currently being paired with Julia Barretto in Mirabella.
Despite playing a supporting role after assuming a couple of titular roles on his last two soaps, Enrique is just glad and grateful that his talent is being given value by the management. “Masaya, blessed. Ang daming artists, pero ilan lang ang nabibigyan talaga ng opportunity na maipakita ang galing [at] ang talent. ‘Pag may ibinigay talaga na opportunity sa iyo, kailangang ipakita mo talaga. Go lang,” he claimed.
