JM De Guzman denied that he is in a relationship with actress Meg Imperial.

The issue stemmed from a photo of them together which went viral online last December.

The photo depicts the De Guzman and Imperial in what seems to be a private party, fueling speculations that they are now together because of the caption which read, “Love couple.”

De Guzman emphasized that he and Imperial are not a couple.

Hindi po. Siguro hindi pa po dumadapo sa akin. Hindi pa po ako ready sa relasyon. Mas may mga una akong kailangang gawin,” he said.

De Guzman, however, clarified that he is already over Jessy Mendiola, his former girlfriend.

In a separate interview, Imperial admitted that she and De Guzman were in a party together last December but explained that it was not a date.

Yun yung wedding ng friend ko na parang malayong kamag-anak yata nila,” she said.

Asked if their friendship is leading to something romantic, Imperial said: “Hindi ko masasabi kung papunta kami doon pero for now, we are friends and we are still getting to know each other as friends.” (MNS)
