"I'm not courting Angel," clarifies actor Marvin Agustin when asked by Startalk host and talent manager Lolit Solis about rumors that he's pursuing popular young actress and Asian Treasures co-star, Angel Locsin.
"We're okay and we work well together," he adds with a smile.
Marvin also stresses that their relationship is strictly professional. "Magkaibigan naman kami, and we have some things in common, like we're both dedicated to our career and we love what we are doing."
The actor refuses to comment about the issue that Angel's fans aren't pleased with the thought of their idol hooking up with an unwed father. Marvin, as we all know, has twins—Sebastian and Santiago—with former girlfriend Tetet Dy.
Incidentally, this was also the alleged reason why Pauleen Luna opted to cut short her budding romance with the actor.
"Hindi naman po naging problema ‘yung pagkakaroon ko ng anak. Iyon po ay isang responsibilidad na hindi naman natin itinatago," he tells Manay Lolit.
In a separate interview, the GMA 7's primetime princess says her piece about the said issue, "Mas masarap maging single." Angel's relationship with Oyo Sotto ended in December 2006.
