"Ha? Pare ang tawagan namin ni Ehra. Super-close kami ni Ehra. Hindi ganun ang samahan namin. Platonic ang relasyon namin ni Ehra. Walang malisya!" an animated Jeremy Marquez told PEP (Philipppine Entertainment) contributor Rey Pumaloy when teasingly asked on the true nature of his relationship with sexy actress Ehra Madrigal.
The entertainment columnist was making a pass on the issue that Jeremy was seen in Boracay locking lips with Ehra, which consequently blew his chances with another young actress, Karel Marquez.
"Maganda ang friendship namin ni Ehra. Masaya kaming lumalabas na magkakaibigan. Close ko rin yung kapatid niyang si Michelle Madrigal. Ang pangit naman noon na tinatalo mo pati 'yung kaibigan mo! Para ko na ngang mga kapatid yun, e," explained the young actor.
Many were saying that if not for the rumored Boracay incident, Jeremy and Karel might be an item now as the young actress/VJ was said to be showing signs of interest during the early stages of their friendship.
"Lahat ng bagay na sinusubukan mo, gusto mong mag-workout. Mabait si Karel, wala akong masasabing hindi maganda sa kanya. Kaya lang talaga, mas maganda kung friends lang kami," elaborated Jeremy.
During the Kapusolympics last Saturday in Marikina, many could not help but notice the discomfort shown by Jeremy and ex-girlfriend Alessandra de Rossi whenever they were near each other.
Jeremy refused to comment about it, though it was obvious during the event that Jeremy wanted to strike a conversation with Alex and, perhaps, make an effort to bring things back to normal after their break-up.
