MANILA, Philippines – Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero admitted that he met actress Heart Evangelista twice but stressed that it wasn't a date but a "meeting."
"I wish (we are dating) pero 'no.' (But) yes, we saw each other twice," he told Kris Aquino on the morning show "KrisTV" on Monday.
"Kapag 27 years old ka siguro 'yun ang tawag doon going out on a date. Pero kung 42 years old ka ang tawag doon ay meeting, nag-meeting lang kayo, " Escudero explained.
Evangelista earlier admitted that she went out with the senator twice.
Escudero said right now, he is not seeing anyone after his marriage with estranged wife, Christine Elizabeth "Tin Tin" Flores, was annulled.
He added that he and his ex-wife remain friends for the sake of their children.
"Ang usapan kasi namin hindi naman kami showbiz, hindi na kami magsasalita tungkol doon. So, huwag na nga (pag-usapan)," he told Aquino when asked about his annulment.
Escudero is Aquino's guest co-host on "KrisTV" for five weeks.
