Sexy actress Ellen Adarna has denied the rumors romantically linking her to hunky actor Derek Ramsay.
On Thursday, January 14, Derek posted a photo of himself on Instagram, with the caption, "Hmmmmmmmmmmm? #ILikeYourEyes."
In the comment section of his post, Ellen wrote: "Makuha ka sa tingin and pickup lines pak!"
Her comment drew mixed reactions from netizens, which prompted the actress to defend herself, saying: "Nag-comment lang malandi agad?"
In a separate comment, Ellen stressed that she doesn't like Derek.
"...Actually di man si Derek ung gusto ko.. parehos kami ng gusto si @galibearstravel yan talaga ung totoo kaya wag kana ma strong jan," she said, in jest, referring to their friend, Gali Gonzaga.
Ellen, 32, and Derek, 44, recently made headlines after photos of them getting cozy at a dinner party made the rounds online.
In a text message he sent to PEP.ph, Derek downplayed the rumors romantically linking him to Ellen.
"Lahat na lang, may issue sa akin. Akala ko ba, ayoko na sa babae and I’m gay?” he said.
According to Derek, it never crossed his mind that he and Ellen would be the subject of rumors simply because of the photos and videos that circulated online.
“Hindi ko na naisip yun, kasi alam mo naman ako, hindi naman ako nag-iisip ng ganyan eh,” he added.
Ellen and Derek are both currently single.
Ellen was previously in a relationship with actor John Lloyd Cruz, with whom she has a son named Elias Modesto, while Derek just recently separated from his last girlfriend, actress Andrea Torres.
