MANILA – “I guess so. Oo.”
This was the confirmation from Sam Concepcion when asked on “Buzz ng Bayan” on Sunday if he and Jasmine Curtis are now officially a couple.
Host Boy Abunda asked the singer-actor the candid question to clarify surrounding reports that Jasmine’s elder sister, actress Anne Curtis, confronted him at Vice Ganda’s birthday party last month.
Although he has already spoken about it before, Concepcion reiterated that he and Anne have already settled the issue and are now okay.
“Yes, there was a confrontation that happened. She did go up to me and she talked to me. Hindi ko naman po sasabihin na hindi nangyari 'yun. Pero all for the good of everybody, naiintindihan ko siyempre. Kasi kung ako may nakababatang kapatid, siyempre gusto kong i-test 'yung manliligaw,” he said.
The singer-actor, however, explained that he did not expect it to happen that’s why he appeared shocked as was earlier reported by an online entertainment site.
“Nung nangyari po 'yun, my friends who were also in the party said, ‘Halika na, I think we should go.’ I was a bit of shocked and I just kind of… umalis na lang din ako,” he said.
As far as he knows, Jasmine’s family likes him as he has a good relationship with the actress’ parents.
Prodded if he thinks Anne also likes him for her sister, he said, “I think she’s for Jasmine’s happiness naman. Siyempre she does her part to stand up for her.”
Meanwhile, Concepcion played down intrigues linking him to his “Mirabella” co-star Julia Barretto.
“[Julia and I] work with each other for ‘Mirabella.’ Lumaki nang lumaki 'yung storya. Even she said hindi niya alam kung saan nanggagaling 'yung intriga,” he said.
In an earlier interview, Barretto said she only sees Concepcion as a big brother since they have worked together back when she was still young.
