MANILA, Philippines - It seems it is not yet time for 50-year-old bachelor President Benigno Aquino III to have a new love, despite his recent confession that he is dating his stylist, fashion magazine editor Liz Uy.
Sources close to Aquino and Uy told ABS-CBN News the President has not been successful in winning the celebrity stylist’s heart--at least, not yet.
During the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) Golden Dove Awards Night, ABS-CBN News tried to get the side of King of Talk Boy Abunda, a close family friend of the Aquinos, but he declined to comment.
Abunda said the President should be the one speaking when it comes to his private life.
Malacañang, on the other hand, maintained its stance not to comment on issues concerning the President’s love life. A Palace official reiterated that they don't want to interfere with his personal life.
Early this month, Aquino confirmed persistent rumors that he and his 28-year-old personal stylist were dating.
There were also reports the 2 were engaged and might get married next year, but both parties belied the claims. - Report from Gretchen Fullido
