MANILA, Philippines – Actor Enchong Dee denied rumors saying he and actress Julia Montes are already a couple.

In an interview with Push.com.ph during the thanksgiving party of the cast and staff of “Maria la del Barrio” on Tuesday, Dee said he and Montes were just catching up with each other when they were seen together during the recently concluded Star Magic Ball.

“Wala naman kasi para sa amin, nagsayawan lang kami. Wala siya talagang ibig sabihin. ‘Sige tara, let’s enjoy the night!’ Wala talaga siya yung parang, ‘Okay gagawin natin ito para may something.’ Wala talaga,” he said.

“Hindi talaga kami nagkaka-kita-kita at all. It was a time na [pwede kami magkasama]. Actually, nakasama din namin si Kathryn (Bernardo), Diego (Loyzaga), tsaka sila Albie (Casiño). Kasi sila din yung mga bagong kaibigan ko na hindi ko naman talaga nakakasama even outside work. So perfect timing na Star Magic ball. Katulad ng sinasabi ko, it’s a gathering so yun ang perfect time,” the actor added.

According to the Push.com.ph report, the two were seen cozy on the dance floor after the program. Their common friends even teased them as a pair.

Montes got romantically linked with Dee after they were seen by reporters in a restaurant in Quezon City publicly.

Both, however, maintained they were not dating and just hanging out as friends.

Aside from Dee, Montes has been romantically linked to singer-actor Sam Milby and Gawad ng Urian's Aktor ng Dekada awardee Coco Martin.

Dee, on the other hand, has been rumored to be dating on-screen partner Erich Gonzales and young actress Kim Chiu.
