MANILA - "We are here as good friends." 

Diego Loyzaga and Sofia Andres were quick to clarify romance rumors as they walked down the red carpet of the Star Magic Ball 2016 held at the Makati Shangri-La Saturday evening. 

Loyzaga opted for a more simple look, wearing a straightforward black tuxedo by Francis Libiran matched with a crisp, white polo, while Andres was clad in a black beaded gown with a plunging illusion neckline designed by Pepsi Herrera. 

The pair have repeatedly downplayed fan clamor for them to start dating, maintaining that they are just really close friends who enjoy each other’s company.

Back in July, Loyzaga referred to Andres as his goddess after the actress defended him over his controversial bar brawl. The two are set to star in an upcoming series, which will begin taping in November.
