Kapuso actress Gabbi Garcia and Kapamilya actor Khalil Ramos were spotted at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig City earlier today, April 28.
The young stars were rumored to be a couple back in early 2017, but both denied the allegations through separate interviews with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
Gabbi and Khalil described each other as "really good friends" after they met at the debut party of their common friend, Kapamilya actress Julia Barretto, in 2015.
Gabbi told PEP.ph in a May 2017 interview, "Close kami since 2015.
"Nagkakilala kami sa debut ni Julia nung 2015.
“Pinakilala kami ni Kathryn Bernardo. Kasi, nasa table ako nina Kathryn.
“So, lahat nag-uusap-usap, ganyan.”
She admitted that the rumor about her and Khalil being a couple surprised her.
She remarked, "Ano ba yun? Saan nanggaling yun? At saka nakakatawa.
“Kasi, pumutok yung balitang yun, nakita lang kaming magkasama.
“'Tapos, biglang ganun na agad.”
Meanwhile, in a July 2017 interview with PEP.ph, Khalil said he had never courted Gabbi.
He said, "We’re good friends, nothing more to it.
"Sometimes I hang out with her family, because I’m close to her family.
"We hang out with sila Julia and our common friends. That’s it."
Khalil and Gabbi were first spotted together in Hongkong last November 2017, when the actor-director and his production team shot the music video for Gabbi's first single, "All I Need."
