MANILA -- After hinting about a "heartache" to explain her decision to cut her hair short, host-actress Kris Aquino clarified that Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista is just a "friend."
On Instagram, Aquino also apologized to Bautista for mentioning him in her social media account.
"I got home & saw all the Gatorade waiting for me. Thank You HB! (Sorry I broke my rule about not mentioning him in my IG account. We're not a 'couple' but we are the BEST OF FRIENDS. And in this uncertain world, we're sure to be FRIENDS FOR LIFE. That's actually what we started as, it's where we are most comfortable being, and for whatever tomorrow may still bring, true & lasting friendship is always the best foundation," said Aquino, who was rushed to a hospital on Tuesday afternoon due to dehydration.
"May I quote my favorite song? 'Thanks to you for teaching me how to live, putting things in perspective. Teaching me how to give, and how to take, no mistake...' I grew up a lot this 2014 & he had a big role in what I am today. #noregrets #stillbelieveinlove #someday GOOD NIGHT," she added.
Aquino had recently confirmed dating Bautista while appealed for privacy. But the two reportedly have called it quits, according to entertainment editor Ricky Lo.
