Singer JK Labajo took to social media to greet his girlfriend, model Maureen Wroblewitz (now going by just Maureen Wrob), as she turned 23 on Tuesday, June 22.
On his Instagram page, JK shared a photo of Maureen, captioned with his heartfelt greeting for his girlfriend.
"hay ang swerte mo talaga sakin," he began.
"maligayang kaarawan sa aking minamahal! palagi mong tandaan na ako'y andito lang na walang sawang susuporta sa lahat ng mga gusto mong gawin sa buhay. naway makamit mo ang lahat ng iyong mga pangarap, aking maliwanag na bituin! cute mo talaga gigil ako sayo," he said.
In the comments section of his post, Maureen replied with red heart emojis.
It was in 2017 when JK—who made his showbiz breakthrough in 2014 via ABS-CBN's The Voice Kids—was first romantically linked to Maureen. However, the singer quickly shot down the rumors, saying he and the Asia's Next Top Model winner were only good friends.
"No. She’s my best friend. Someone else owns her heart," he said at the time.
Of Maureen, he said: "Everything about her is great. Mabait siya, down-to-earth. Yun lang. That fact only, to think about that, it’s amazing. To think saan siya nanggaling ngayon na Asia’s Next Top Model pero andito pa rin siya. That’s nice. You would be surprised to know na madaldal siya. Makulit. On-cam kasi medyo mahinhin siya, ganyan ganyan. Pero madaldal 'yun."
However, in 2018, rumors linking the two of them resurfaced, after Maureen played JK's lover in the music video of his hit song "Buwan".
In a previous interview with PUSH, JK stressed that "some things are best kept private" when asked about the real score between him and Maureen.
"It all depends, man, it depends on how people see it. Some things are best kept private, you know," he said.
