MANILA -- Singer Erik Santos on Monday clarified his reported relationship with fellow singer Angeline Quinto.

In an interview on "KrisTV" on Monday, Santos stressed that what they have is more than friendship but not yet romantic love.

"Hindi ko masabi (na in love) but there's magic," Santos told host Kris Aquino. "Iba kasi 'yung feeling kapag in love ka. Iba 'yun. Next level 'yon."

"Not in a relationship yet but more than friends. Definitely it's more than friends," he added.

Asked to comment on reports that they have exchanged I love you's to each other, Santos explained: "Pwede namang mag-I love you na wala pa sa relationship, hindi ba?... Kasi we started as friends. Friends pa lang kami ay naga-I love you na. So parang nasanay na kami ng ganoon. Everytime na nagte-text kami, may I love you."
