MANILA, Philippines – Rumors romantically linking Kris Aquino and Lino Cayetano surfaced anew after the two were spotted arriving together at the birthday party of Daniel Padilla last Friday.
Cayetano was Padilla's director in “Growing Up,” while Aquino starred with the young actor in the highest-grossing movie of all time, “Sisterakas.”
According to a reliable source of “The Buzz,” Aquino and Cayetano arrived at Padilla’s house in Quezon City at the same time.
While Cayetano proceeded to talk to Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, “The Buzz” caught on video how the TV director stole glances at Aquino while she was talking to Padilla’s mother, actress Karla Estrada.
The two also left the party at the same time.
The source of “The Buzz” said Cayetano escorted Aquino to her car first before leaving the place.
Rumors of a romantic relationship between Aquino and the director started in January, following his guest appearance on the host's morning talk show "Kris TV."
Asked in a previous interview how his friendship with Aquino developed, Cayetano said, "I met her before through Liz Uy (fashion stylist, also Cayetano's former girlfriend), tapos sa ABS nagkikita kami, then more and more nag-uusap kami."
"Sa akin, it's simple lang -- we're friends. If there's anything more to it, siguro people will know naman, if that ever happens," he added.
On the possibility of working with Aquino on a project, Cayetano added, "Yeah, for sure, I would love to work with her. Ako, I'm attracted to strong and smart women. My ate (Senator Pia Cayetano) is like that, so wala naman problema sa akin 'yun."
