The rumors linking Aljur Abrenica to Kylie Padilla started when the “Machete” hunk surprised the “Tween Hearts” star during her 18th birthday celebration. Two weeks ago, Kylie had spent the day with the abandoned children under the care of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
But according to the “Machete” hunk, he and Kylie are just friends.
“Marami na ring nagtatanong sa akin n’yan. Kami po ni Kylie ay magkaibigan lang. Kumbaga po ay mas nakikilala namin ang isa’t isa. Magkaibigan lang po talaga kami,” Aljur said in a phone interview with “Showbiz Central” yesterday.
Aljur added that his birthday surprise for Kylie was merely a friendly gesture.
“Sinabihan lang po ako at hindi na ako nagdalawang isip na magpunta talaga dahil gusto ko maging parte ng kaarawan n’ya,” he said.
Is it possible that Aljur is denying the romantic allegations because he’s scared Kylie’s father, Robin Padilla, would find out what’s going on between them?
“Wala naman po sigurong dapat ikatakot. Wala kaming hinahangad na masama,” he said.
As for score between him and “Machete” leading lady Bela Padilla, Aljur said: “Magkakaibigan lang po talaga kami. Wala pong espesyal na namamagitan sa isa’t isa.”
So what are his plans for Valentine’s Day if there is no budding romance between him and the two young Kapuso actresses?
“Ang plano ko po talaga ay magkaroon ng dinner with family. Pero kung papayagan ako ay meron akong isang iimbitahan talaga pero sa amin na po yun,” Aljur said.
