Darren Espanto admits he had a crush on Cassy Legaspi.
"I find her pretty din po," the young ABS-CBN performer said during his appearance on the late-night Kapamilya program Tonight with Boy Abunda last November 15.
But he clarified that he isn't courting the 18-year-old daughter of Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi.
"We're good friends po. Hindi ko po siya nililigawan," Darren continued.
"We just enjoy everything that’s going on. Our friendship, of course... It's not something that we’re really focused on right now."
Every now and then, Darren and Cassy hang out together with their friends, including Cassy's twin brother Mavy.
Has Darren met Carmina and Zoren yet?
He said, "I have been with Tita Carmina po sa mga episodes dati on Kris TV as well, pero si Tito Zoren hindi ko pa po nami-meet personally."
DARREN AND JAYDA AVANZADO
Darren also clarifies that he is not courting Jayda, the 16-year-old daughter of Dingdong Avanzado and Jessa Zaragoza.
He is good friends with the young singer and has a separate group of friends with her that includes AC Bonifacio, Kyle Echarri, and Ken San Jose.
Host Boy Abunda asked, "Who do spend more time with? Cassy or Jayda?"
Darren admitted, "Parehas lang naman po. We all have our own circle of friends."
