MANILA, Philippines -- Host-actress Kris Aquino made it clear that she is not in any "secret relationship," putting an end to rumors that she is dating a Brazilian model and a doctor.
Reacting to rumors that she is secretly dating Daniel Matsunaga, her co-star in the Metro Manila Film Festival entry "Sisterakas," Aquino said she has not seen the Brazilian model for months.
"Maybe because they have a teleserye coming out," the "Kris TV" host said, referring to what she thinks is the reason why the rumor continues to spread. "But the thing is, after the 'Sisterakas' premiere, I've never seen him."
Aquino also denied that she is dating a doctor, as rumors say.
"Kung doctor, gusto ko 'yon. Gusto ko talaga doctor. Pero no, it's not true, wala," she said.
Last month, tabloid papers reported that Aquino and Matsunaga are already an item, and that they are just keeping their relationship a secret from the public.
Last year, Aquino denied dating Matsunaga, stressing that she wants to have an older man as her next boyfriend.
In January, Matsunaga thanked Aquino for the latest strides he has made in his career.
He considered Aquino as a blessing coming off his recent successes.
"Kris gave me a huge opportunity, she's really mabait, she's really nice to me, and I really appreciate it. God really uses people... especially in my life here right now, that's why I'm really thankful," he said.
