ACTOR Derek Ramsay dismissed rumors romantically linking him to Queen of All Media Kris Aquino.
The Kapatid star clarified that he’s just good friends with the television host.
“There’s no relationship. No, there is no relationship going on. Hindi ako nanliligaw, we’re friends, hindi kami,” he said.
According to Ramsay, his friendship with Aquino started when they did a San Miguel TV commercial shot in 2005.
They worked together a couple of times and reconnected again as friends recently. He added that the mother of two would usually ask him for advice.
“I gave her guy’s point of view. I asked her advice the other day from something, that’s why she posted ‘Thanks for giving me the opportunity to be there for you also’ because I’m really there for her,” he said.
To recall, rumors linking the two started when Aquino posted the aforementioned message on her official Instagram account.
She also included a quote, “For every girl with a broken heart, there’s always a boy with a glue gun” on the said post.
The actor further clarified reports that they’ve been spotted together several times. Ramsay said they never had breakfast together and went out to have drinks.
They also attended the birthday party of Vice Ganda together.
“We had a drink out and we posted picture. We’re not hiding anything,” he said. “We posted the picture on Instagram about it. We took it out when people are reacting.”
Ramsay said that if he’s close or spotted with a woman, it does not automatically mean he’s dating her.
“I just wanna say if I get seen out with a woman, does it mean na may intention na agad ako na ligawan?” he added.
Aside from the 37-year-old actor, Aquino is also linked to Bataan Governor Abet Garcia and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista. (MNS)
