Ever since JM de Guzman announced his TV comeback, he and Angelica Panganiban have been a hot topic of fans who want to see romance blossom between them in real life. The two stars have also been teasing fans with cute photos of themselves on their social media accounts, like this one where they are almost kissing.
Last Friday, in an interview with Boy Abunda on his talk show Tonight with Boy Abunda, JM was asked about his relationship with Angelica. JM appeared as a guest to promote his new TV show, Araw Gabi.
Boy asked, "Kayo na ba, nililigawan mo ba?"
JM replied, "Hindi, magtropa po kami ni Angelica. Kulitan lang po namin ang mga ganyan."
Boy followed up, "So gaano ka-close kayo ni Angelica?"
JM immediately answered, "Yong group of friends po namin, grabe rin po nila ako suportahan ngayon, lalo na nung bago ako, bago talaga ako makalakad sa dalawang paa. Yong concerns, yong pagpapranka nila sa akin, and yong mga mali ko talaga na dati na sinasampal nila sa mukha ko ngayon. I’m really thankful for that."
To clarify, Boy asked again, "So ang sagot po dito ay, 'Hindi'? Hindi nanliligaw si JM? Tropa, kaibigan?"
JM then nods.
The JM-Angelica tandem began when they starred in the hit film That Thing Called Tadhana (2014). At the time, Angelica was in a relationship with actor John Lloyd Cruz, and JM was again linked to his ex-girlfriend Jessy Mendiola.
