MANILA - There was no stopping Sarah Geronimo from answering questions about Matteo Guidicelli, despite her handlers requesting to end an interview Thursday when the personal subject was brought up.
The 25-year-old pop star appeared ready to finally admit her relationship with the actor at the thanksgiving party of her movie "Maybe This Time," as she offered the confirmation without being asked directly whether they are a couple.
Geronimo was only asked if she and Guidicelli really call each other "mahal," following the 25-year-old actor's admission on the matter.
"Oo naman [ganoon po ang tawagan namin]... Sige, sabihin ko na po, boyfriend ko na po si Matteo. Kasi marami ding nagsasabi na paligoy-ligoy... So, gano'n po," she said.
As soon as Geronimo confirmed that Guidicelli is her boyfriend, her handlers asked reporters to wrap up the interview. The actress, however, continued to accommodate questions.
At one point, Geronimo told her handlers that it was okay for the interview to continue, as they were heard repeatedly saying, "Okay na."
Asked why she finally confirmed her relationship with Guidicelli, Geronimo said, "Para naman kasi -- (addressing her handler) 'di, okay lang -- para, 'diba once and for all, may clarity dito sa issue, tapos okay na."
