MANILA, Philippines – Celebrity stylist Liz Uy would not confirm rumors that she is dating director Lino Cayetano.
During the opening ceremony of a jewelry store in Greenbelt 5 in Makati on Thursday, Uy was put on the spot and asked by ABS-CBN News about the real score between her and Cayetano.
Obviously caught off guard, Uy laughed off the question and clarified that she is very much single.
Sought for a Valentine’s wish for Cayetano, since the lovers’ day is just around the corner, Uy said: “For world peace. That’s my only wish. Siguro next time na ako magwi-wish ng ganon. For now, world peace talaga.”
Last December, Queen of all Media Kris Aquino confirmed in her official Twitter account that Uy is dating a new guy.
This was affirmed by a number of Twitter users who posted that they have seen Uy and Cayetano together before and after Christmas.
Uy, however, said she does not mind being single this Valentine’s Day because she has her friends whom she can spend the occasion with.
Asked if she is pressured to have a special someone, she answered: “Walang deadline. Ang love naman hindi mo mapipilit eh. Hindi mo rin siya i-e-expect. Dadating lang siya talaga.”
The celebrity stylist also declined to give any statements regarding her alleged failed romance with President Benigno Aquino III.
“Actually, sorry po ah pero kapag mga questions regarding the President, I want to respect him and I don’t want to answer anything na lang. Hindi na lang po ako sasagot basta may link kay Mr. President,” she said.
Asked about her former boyfriend, John Lloyd Cruz, she said they are now friends.
“Wala na po akong comment. Matagal na po sa buhay ko si John Lloyd. Lumang luma na. For me wala na po talaga akong, hindi naman sa walang care, pero wala na po akong masasabi sa buhay nila kasi kanila naman iyon eh. I think respect lang hindi na ako magsalita. I really wish him happiness kung sino man ang partner niya ngayon. For me basta happy siya, kasi we’re really friends now. We’ve become friends,” said Uy. - With a report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
