"Pinoy Big Brother" winner Ejay Falcon
MANILA, Philippines – Actor Ejay Falcon denied that he is avoiding Robin Padilla after his nipped-in-the-bud romance with the action star’s eldest daughter Queenie.

In an interview with “The Buzz” aired on Sunday, the "Pinoy Big Brother" winner said there is no truth to that rumor because he and Padilla still greet each other when they cross paths in ABS-CBN.

Falcon said he also remains friends with Queenie even if their romance did not blossom.

“Yung samin ni Queenie, talagang hanggan doon lang. Magkaibigan naman po kami eh. Napakamarespeto ko kasi sa kanila, lalo na kay Kuya Robin and siyempre kay Queenie,” he said.

Queenie and Falcon first worked together in the movie “Tum: My Pledge of Love,” a Bollywood-style movie directed and starred in by Padilla and his wife, TV host-actress Mariel Rodriguez.

They were also co-stars in the television series “Momay.”

In his past interview, Falcon said Queenie was the closest girl in his life.

"Sa ngayon best friends kami ni Queenie. Kumbaga siya ang pinakamalapit na babae sa akin. Hindi ito dahil sa teleserye pero si Queenie kasi, siya ang pinakamalapit na babae sa akin," Falcon said at the time.

Queenie has since quit show business for her Muslim religion. She said she finds inner peace and direction in life in Islam.

Falcon, on the other hand, remains a contract artist of ABS-CBN.
