Last month during a trip to El Nido, Palawan along with other celebrity friends to celebrate Kathryn Bernardo’s 26th birthday, Joshua Garcia started getting linked to basketball athlete Trina Guytingco when photos of them together were posted on social media. The 24-year-old actor denied being in a relationship with the Ateneo Blue Lady Eagles team member in an interview during the Star Magic 30th All Star Games last May 22.
“Tropa yun. Barkada namin yun nila Daniel (Padilla). Nagkataon lang kasi siguro na yung time na yun, siyempre partner partner sila and kami yung parehas single kaya parang yung tropa tropa namin may pag-push. Pero tropa yun si Trina,” he clarified.
When asked if they would be going on another trip together again in the future, Joshua admitted, “Hindi pa ulit. Last namin yung El Nido. May mga plano kami pero hindi puwede sabihin (laughs).”
During the interview, Joshua also took the opportunity to congratulate his rumored girlfriend because of the Gilas Women’s basketball team’s gold medal win in Hanoi, Vietnam.
“Congratulations pala kay Trina kasi nasa SEA Games siya ngayon eh. Naglalaro siya ng basketball,” he shared.
Joshua explained that his decision to stay single is not set in stone but only because he is taking advantage of his blessings at work.
“Kasi ang daming magandang nangyayari sa taon ko eh. Kusa na lang dumarating yung trabaho eh. Yung love life hindi ko naman sinasarado yung sarili ko dun eh. Pag may dumating and parang smooth and okay kami, parang same wavelength kami, okay naman. Kung darating, darating. Pero kung hindi naman, hindi naman kailangan magmadali,” he admitted.
