• Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola are ‘going out’
  • Manzano said they can’t deny because there are photos of the two of them online
  • Mendiola revealed Manzano started courting her around May this year

For the first time since rumors linking them to each other begun, ABS-CBN stars Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola revealed the real status between them.

Manzano said it would be weird if he denied that they are indeed going out because there are photos of two of them circulating online.

Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) quoted him as saying during the launch of the new season of “Minute To Win It: The Last Man Standing” on Monday, July 11: “Di kami puwede mag-deny because we have pictures online. Ang weird naman kung ide-deny ko iyon na may pictures online, kasi anything else, gagamitin against me. Sabi nga, isa sa pinakabugbog na statement bawat hearing yung  ‘I invoke my right against self-incrimination.”

[We cannot deny it because we have pictures online. It would be weird if I would still deny it when there are pictures online because anything else, they’ll use it against me. As they say, one of the most overused statements in every hearing is ‘I invoke my right to self-incrimination.’]

According to an article published by Rappler, after the 35-year-old actor-TV host made his admission, Mendiola revealed that Manzano started courting her around May this year.

She shared that the two of them have been friends for quite some time now before Manzano began to show his interest in her.

She emphasized that neither of the two of can truly explain how things happened because they just happened.

The ‘FHM Sexiest Woman’ for this year described Manzano as a gentleman and very mature individual and added that ‘any girl would be lucky to have him’.

When she was asked if she’s ready to enter a new relationship, Mendiola answered: “We’ll see.”
