"We're not a couple. We're hanging out."
This was what Azkals striker Phil Younghusband said in a taped interview aired on The Buzz on Sunday regarding rumors that he and actress Bangs Garcia are already a couple.
Talks about them being an item surfaced after a photo of them posing together with a fan made rounds online. Something which Phil addressed saying that, “"I'm hanging out with Valerie Garcia. We enjoy each other's company and we get on really well.”
The Buzz reported that the two were introduced to each other by a friend. But even if they are “hanging out” the Fil-British football player maintained his stance that they are not yet officially together.
"I would never lie... We're enjoying hanging out and we're happy, I'm happy," he said.
Phil was previously in a relationship with The Legal Wife star Angel Locsin while Bangs has been linked to Enrique Gil lately after they were spotted together in Japan, something which she clarified to be untrue.
