MANILA – Beauty queen-actress Ruffa Gutierrez denied that the foreigner she’s with in Tim Yap’s Instagram photos is already her boyfriend.
In an interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Gutierrez said she and the guy in the photos, whom she identified as French-Israeli entrepreneur Jordan Mouyal, are still “getting to know each other.”
“I met him in Manila. Mabait naman siya. He’s visiting me here now. So siguro lagi siyang nakikita,” she said.
Contrary to rumors, Gutierrez clarified that she and Mouyal are not yet a couple.
“He’s so private. He’s in the IT business, he has a company. Nandito siya ngayon for another week or so and then he goes back. [Walang label], kain-kain lang ng food kapag may time,” she said.
Asked to comment on her mother, talent manager Annabelle Rama, who recently marked that her daughter wastes her money on younger guys, Gutierrez said, “Si mommy para lang may masabi siya minsan ‘di ba… Yung mga nail-link naman sa akin, that’s just puro tsismis.”
In a previous interview, Gutierrez emphasized she is not "officially" dating anyone.
However, Gutierrez, who is part of the Star Cinema movie “Maybe This Time,” said it is still her dream to walk down the aisle again one day.
"Before kasi, ayoko na magpakasal talaga. Pero since ang daming nagpapakasal lately and every time na may nagpapakasal umiiyak ako, sabi ko, 'Ay, I'm really a romantic at heart.' So gusto ko talaga magpakasal ulit," she told The Philippine Star.
Gutierrez was previously married Turkish businessman Yilmaz Bektasin 2003. In January 2011, their marriage was declared null and void.
