Speaking to reporters at the sidelines of the fashion event Style Origin at Glorietta Mall in Makati City on Thursday, Rivera denied that she and Karylle are not in good terms, citing their chance meeting.
"Actually, ang lagi ko ngang sinasabi, wala namang naging problema sa amin ni Karylle. Nagkataon lang na ex niya si Dong (Dantes) at naging boyfriend ko si Dong," Rivera said.
After three years of being a couple, Dantes and Karylle broke up in September 2008, amid rumors linking the actor to Rivera, his new leading lady at the time.
The "It's Showtime" host is now reported to be in a relationship with singer Yael Yuzon, while Dantes and Rivera have been officially a couple for years now.
Karylle reportedly referred to her recent pleasant encounter with Rivera as a "blessing," pointing to the latter's warmth.
Recalling their meeting, Rivera said, "Nag-smile lang ako sa kanya, kasi wala naman talaga akong problema sa kanya, e."
