Just a few weeks after denying rumors that he's in a relationship with Jessy Mendiola, Luis Manzano on Monday eventually revealed that he and the actress are dating.
"Lumalabas kami," Manzano told reporters at the press conference for the third season of his game show "Minute To Win It."
"Kasi kapag-deny ko 'yon ay magagalit kayo sa aking lahat. Mukha naman akong tanga kapag dininay ko 'yon."
"Hindi kami puwedeng mag-deny kasi mayroon kaming pictures online. Parang ang weird naman noon kung idi-deny ko 'yon," he also said, pointing to photos of him and Mendiola at a mall, which were posted by fans online. However, Manzano declined to give more details about his private life.
Mendiola earlier said that they are not hiding anything. She even went on to say that Manzano has a chance with her. When asked to comment about this, Manzano said: "Okay, it's good, thank you very much."
Mendiola has been in the media attention recently after she was voted the "sexiest woman" in the country by readers of FHM Philippines -- a title previously held by Manzano's ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin.
"I don't want to limit women to titles nor statistics, napaka-unfair naman sa kanila noon, parang denumero lang," Manzano said when asked about this. "Yes, it's a prestigious title being hailed as the sexiest pero kapag ni-refer na sa akin parang puting them as statistics and that's very unfair to all the ladies out there."
Meanwhile, Manzano stayed silent when mentioned that Locsin admits that she is still hurting over their breakup.
