MANILA, Philippines -- Actress and host Kris Aquino said she believes that the photo posted by actress Angelica Panganiban last Sunday, showing her with John Lloyd Cruz, was made with the consent of the actor.
While the photo doesn't confirm anything, Aquino said it only shows that Panganiban and the actor are now closer.
"I don't think they are saying na kami na but I think sinasabi nila na 'yes we are getting closer.' And wala namang masama doon because both are very much single and both have the right to have their happiness," said Aquino on her morning show "KrisTV" on Wednesday.
Aquino is a good friend of Panganiban, having worked together in the horror film "Segunda Mano."
After months of being linked together, Panganiban went public in hinting that there is something between her and Cruz when she posted a photo on her Instagram showing she spent her day with Cruz.
Panganiban broke up with actor Derek Ramsay last May, while Cruz just called it quits with actress Shaina Magdayao.
Meanwhile, comedienne Melai Cantiveros does not believe that there's something going on between Cruz and Panganiban.
"Ano ba ang ini-isyu nila? Bawal na ba ang picture ngayon dito sa Pilipinas? ...Normal lang naman ang mag-picture, pero char-char lang naman 'yon, pwede namang mag-char char. Ang mga tao huwag sobrang serious," Cantiveros said, also on "KrisTV."
Cantiveros and Panganiban are part of ABS-CBN's gag show "Banana Split.
