Camarines Sur Governor-elect Luis Miguel "Migz" Villafuerte and singer-actress Sarah Geronimo
MANILA – Camarines Sur Governor-elect Luis Miguel "Migz" Villafuerte denied on Tuesday that he is courting singer-actress Sarah Geronimo, saying he just wants to be friends with the country's Pop Star Princess.
“Hindi po nililigawan. Gusto ko muna siya makilala, maging kaibigan, and we’ll see from there,” he told dzMM.
The 24-year-old Villafuerte, however, admitted that he sent a bouquet of flowers to Geronimo back in 2011.
“Medyo na-link po tayo kay Sarah the past few years dahil ako po’y nagpadala ng bulaklak dahil gusto ko siya maging kaibigan,” he said.
Villafuerte is the youngest governor in the country, winning the Camarines Sur gubernatorial race in the May 13 elections over his grandfather, Rep. Luis Villafuerte.
Geronimo, also 24, was previously romantically linked to actors Rayver Cruz and Gerald Anderson.
Both actors were reported to have been "discouraged" to pursue Geronimo due to the alleged disapproval of her parents.
