- Jake Ejercito put an end to rumors linking him to Maine Mendoza. In his interview in Philippine Star with columnist Ricky Lo, he clarified the real story behind his controversial Instagram story where he posted a girl covering her face. AlDub fans immediately suspected it was Maine because of her watch. He was then bashed by netizens.
“Maine and I were in a group having fun, so I wouldn’t consider it a date. For me, it is a date if there’s only the two of you, the two of us,” he explained. “Maine is just a friend,” he further added. (Philippine Star)
