We've been wondering for weeks now if Janella Salvador is really dating 21-year-old actor Markus Paterson. I mean, Markus was even present during the bday celeb of Janella's father Juan Miguel Salvador in September! That's GOTTA mean something.
During his guesting on Tonight With Boy Abunda, Markus refused to give a ~straight answer~ when asked if he's indeed Janella's boyfriend. "What we have is between us, and we want to keep it that way. She [Janella] said that she didn't want to have a relationship with the rest of the world, [because] she's experienced that. I want to respect her and what she wishes, too. So I'm not going to say anything to confirm or deny it."
We totally understand and respect this too, especially after Janella admitted that she went through depression after her last relationship.
Markus added that the two of them aren't hiding from anyone, it's just that "right now is not the right time for anything." According to Markus, Janella is also very busy with her teleserye The Killer Bride these days. But when Tito Boy *cornered* him, he admitted that Janella's name is "in his heart!"
When it comes to Janella and Joshua Garcia's onscreen love team, Markus admitted that he got jealous AT FIRST. "Yung unang feeling na...konting selos na butterflies. But when I thought about it, well, it's work. And they're both really good at what they do, and they can create chemistry just like that. They're friends already and Josh is a great guy."
Aww, we love supportive *almost* boyfriends!
