MANILA – De La Salle University basketball star Jeron Teng maintained that all is well between him and young actress Jane Oineza despite their respective hectic schedules.
Teng is currently gearing up for the upcoming season of the UAAP, while Oineza is busy with her series “Nasaan Ka ng Kailangan Kita” and the upcoming movie “The Love Affair.”
In an interview with ABS-CBNnews.com on Wednesday, Teng said he and Oineza will not let work get in the way of their “friendship.”
“We still communicate naman and we see each other. Nag-uusap kami and nagkikita from time to time,” he said.
“I’m just happy with all the blessings she’s been receiving,” he added.
The Green Archer also said he also does not get jealous of Oineza’s onscreen partners. “For her, it’s work eh. I don’t have any plans naman of joining showbiz like acting. She just does what she needs to do,” he said.
To prove he is supportive of the actress’ career, Teng assured that he will watch “The Love Affair.”
“Bibili ako ng maraming tickets. Bibilihan ko lahat ng family ko and teammates ko. Pipilitin ko silang lahat manood,” he said.
But will he be attending the movie’s premiere night?
“Actually hindi ko alam. Siguro kung free ako, pupunta ako. Kung free, as in libre 'yung schedule ko,” he said.
Meanwhile, Teng also shared that he and Oineza indeed met up in Dubai early this year. However, he denied that the meeting was planned.
“Nauna ako doon. I was with my family then tapos she also went din with her family. We also have fans there so we met up na lang and had a get-together,” he said.
Teng has been vocal about his feelings for the actress, fueling rumors that they are already a couple. The two, however, stressed in separate interviews that they are not yet together but they do enjoy each other’s company.
