Controversial on-screen partners Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes are now exclusively dating, a television report said.

The report said Rivera and Dantes would often eat out and watch films especially during their free time.

Rivera herself admitted to “Chika Minute” that the two of them would go out in order to relax and get away from work.

Rivera added that the actor would normally decide on what film to watch.

Rivera is said to be the reason Dantes and his former girlfriend, singer-actress Karylle, split up. Rumored also had it that Rivera was carrying Dantes’ baby.

At the height of the controversy, Rivera has repeatedly denied her reported romantic relationship with Dantes. Karylle, on the other hand, has maintained that Rivera was not the reason for the break-up.

On the pregnancy rumor, meanwhile, both Rivera and Dantes had denied the issue.

"As much as possible I really don't want to get into the middle of everything. Ang sa akin lang I'm always for the truth and the truth will set you free," Dantes told abs-cbnNEWS.com in a previous interview.

Rivera and Karylle, daughter of Zsa Zsa Padilla, almost got involved in a verbal tussle after the singer had allegedly insinuated in her “The Buzz” interview that Rivera was pregnant.

A teary-eyed Rivera publicly admitted that she was hurt after watching Karylle’s interview. Karylle, meanwhile, denied that she made such insinuation.
