Luis Manzano shut down speculations that he had overlapping relationships with ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin and current girlfriend Jessy Mendiola.
The 36-year-old TV host-actor gave this statement after announcing on Instagram that he and Jessy celebrated their first anniversary as a couple last June 25, 2017.
However, some netizens barraged him with accusations that he was dating Jessy even when he was still in a relationship with Angel.
Quashing speculations that he two-timed Angel with Jessy, Luis posted a statement on the Jessy's Instagram thread last night, June 26.
Addressing his bashers, Luis fired back: “TO EVERYONE ASKING OR PRETENDING TO BE 'DETECTIVES', i was already single January palang around 2 days after the star wars force awakens showing here.
“So that's crystal clear
“so don't pretend to know it all when all you see/read/know are from tabloids or social media
“if you still can't understand that e di kayo na may problema”
The Hollywood film Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiered in Philippine cinemas on January 8, 2016.
Based on Luis’s statement, he and Angel broke up as early as January 10, 2016.
As for his relationship with Jessy, the The Voice Teens host insisted that they only grew close when they had the chance to “hang out” during his birthday April last year.
He said, “the first time we got to really hangout was my birthday last year. kung may iba kayong alam na mas alam pa sa amin, aba, e di kayo na!”
It was on January 26, 2016 when PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) first reported about Luis and Angel's rumored breakup.
While they reportedly tried to work things out, Angel confirmed the following month that she and Luis have indeed called it quits.
Jessy, for her part, previously said that Luis started courting her sometime in May last year.
But it was only on December 11, 2016 when the couple admitted that they're officially in a relationship.
