Janella Salvador and Markus Patterson may remain elusive about putting a label on their relationship, but this would not hinder fans from speculating, as hints regarding their real score continue to pour in on social media.
After being photographed together at the birthday party of Markus's mother in Pangasinan last month, the latest sighting of the rumored couple was at another celebration—this time, of Janella's father, singer Juan Miguel Salvador, who turned 56 last Sunday, September 29.
On Instagram, fan account @markusjanellateamreal posted a photo of Janella and Markus with Juan Miguel during his birthday dinner at an undisclosed fine dining restaurant.
A second photo reveals that the three were joined by close friends in the industry, including Star Magic handlers Love Capulong and Gidget Dela Cuesta.
Both Janella and Markus have refused to confirm or deny the rumors claiming they are already a couple, with The Killer Bride star previously stating that she would rather keep things low-key during her guesting on late night talk show Tonight With Boy Abunda.
“I'd rather not release an official statement kung ano man mayroon,” she said.
“Kasi based on my last relationship, based on my experience, it doesn't do me any good na you're in a relationship with someone pero feel mo, you're in a relationship with the whole world,” she added.
In a separate interview with ABS-CBN News, Markus likewise said he prefers to keep the real score between him and Janella private.
"We mean a lot to each other but we're definitely not there yet. What you see is what you get. We're that, pretty much,” he said.
“Kahit showbiz kami or hindi, it's obviously better for a relationship — regardless of what relationship it is — to just stay in between those 2 people,” he added.
