MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino has set the record straight about TV host Grace Lee.

"Kaibigan natin," Aquino said in an interview with Bombo Radyo.

It is the first time the President spoke about the status of his relationship with Lee following reports that they have stopped "seeing each other."

When told about Lee's preference that the President be the one to set the record straight about their relationship, Aquino said: "Kaya nga, sabi mo one word. O two words: ‘[mag]kaibigan kami."
