Actor Matteo Guidicelli with singer-actress Sarah Geronimo
MANILA, Philippines -- Actor Matteo Guidicelli insists he is just friends with singer-actress Sarah Geronimo amid rumors romantically linking the two Kapamilya stars.

"We are friends, that's it," Guidicelli told reporters during the launching of his newest endorsement LINE with Jessy Mendiola, with whom he had a "special relationship."

Guidicelli also denied that he courted the singer and stressed that he has no plan to pursue her. "We are just friends po," the actor said.

Asked if he still has a crush on Geronimo, the actor again repeated the line: "Wala po. We are just friends."

Aside from co-hosting "Sarah G Live," Guidicelli was also part of Geronimo's concert abroad.

Last week, Guidicelli's former leading lady Mendiola stressed that Geronimo had nothing to do with their alleged "break-up."

"Nahihiya nga ako kay Sarah kasi palagi na lang siya ang nadadawit sa pangyayaring ito. May nagti-tweet sa akin nagagalit. Hindi po siya kasali. Siguro nagkataon nagkaroon sila ng show in the States and wala, ayaw ko siyang isama sa nangyayari kasi hindi naman po talaga," Mendiola said at the time.
