Dawn Balagot is a celebrity endorser turned actress who is the current flame of Albie Casiño. “Hindi naman po ako ang reason kung bakit sila naghiwalay. I have no idea kung anong rason kung bakit sila naghiwalay. I wasn’t in the picture,” she said about Albie’s ex-girlfriend Andi Eigenmann.

Newbie actress Dawn Balagot was seen having sweet moments with Albie Casiño at My Cinema in Greenbelt3, MakatiCity.

The two stars were holding hands after the July 16 private screening of the Cinemalaya entry called The Animals.

When asked if they are exclusively dating, Dawn politely requested that we talk to Albie himself.

We told her that we saw her holding hands with Albie at the venue. Smiling, she said, “Inaaalalayan niya ako.”

Is she single or in a relationship right now?

“I’m not going to say I’m single…no comment na lang,” Dawn said simply.

What does she like most about Albie?

Dawn looked behind me where Albie was standing as he signaled with his fingers. She quipped, “Sabi niya, his looks raw!”

Turning serious, she said about her rumored boyfriend: “He is such a nice guy and sobrang we get along. I love how honest he is and he’s very caring.

“We’ve known each other for more than a year.”

ALBIE'S CONTROVERSIAL PAST. Andi Eigenmann is the recent ex-girlfriend of Albie. The ABS-CBN actress says that her daughter Adrianna Gabrielle is her love child with Albie.

However, Albie has refused to acknowledge fathering the baby and said he would welcome a DNA test to confirm Andi’s claim.

How does Dawn see the issue?

“Of course, I heard about it but it’s in the past naman po. I have nothing to say about that. He has been very open about it.”

Does she have a message for Andi?

“Wala naman po. I see that she’s happy and I’m happy for her.”
