Sam Milby refuted speculations that he is courting Maja Salvador anew.
Previous reports mentioned that Maja supposedly alluded to being textmates with an unnamed actor who’s keeping her inspired these days.
Sam, for his part, admitted that he gets to talk to Maja via a “group chat,” but nothing more than that.
When pressed about the issue, Sam explained, “I heard about it. She said na may ka-textmate siya na hindi niya sinabi kung sino.
“So, I don’t know why everyone’s assuming na ako ang ka-textmate niya.
“But, yeah, we are friends.
“She’s someone that I did actually want to go for before. Hindi lang nangyayari.”
For the record, Sam briefly mentioned that he courted Maja years ago.
He said, “Nagparamdam ako [kay Maja dati].
“She’s such a real person. She thinks about a lot of other people’s feelings.
“The way she takes care of people, talagang napakabait na tao.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other entertainment reporters were able to interview Sam after the presscon proper for his concert The Milby Way, held at the Felicidad Mansion in Quezon City, Thursday, October 29.
BRO-ZONED BY SHAINA? Sam, who has been vocal about not having an official relationship for the past six years, was grilled about the status of his love life.
During the interview, he was asked if it’s true that he got “bro-zoned” by Shaina Magdayao when he courted her in the past.
To which, Sam remarked, “I don’t know if it’s considered 'bro-zoned.'
"But, yeah, we’re just friends lang din."
As far as he knows, the Rockoustic Heartthrob clarified that the news him being supposedly “bro-zoned” came about when his friend Enchong Dee mentioned it on Kris TV’s October 13 episode.
But did he court Shaina in the past?
Sam replied, “Before, yeah. But it did not materialize.”
When prodded about the reason why his courtship of Shaina didn’t push through, Sam explained that he was just too shy to pursue her at the time.
“Kasi I’m shy especially when I like a girl.
“I’m a bit more quiet, so yun, that was it…
“I don’t know if we really gave it enough of a chance to see. Bata pa kami [nun].
“But yeah. It just didn’t move further.”
NON-SHOWBIZ GIRL. To date, Sam admitted that he’s “seeing” a non-showbiz girl whom he met through “social media.”
But he refused to give details about the girl he’s currently dating.
Sam said, “It’s too early. Basta I’m just seeing someone.”
