Amid rumors surrounding her ties with her "My Perfect You" leading man Gerald Anderson, beauty queen and comebacking actress Pia Wurtzbach made her first public appearance with her boyfriend, model and racer Marlon Stockinger, on Tuesday night.

Wurtzbach and Stockinger were hand-in-hand at a Makati mall as they attended a block screening of "My Perfect You," as seen in a video originally posted by Cheska Summer, Wurtzbach's friend and Mercator colleague.

The screening, based on Wurtzbach's Instagram stories, was sponsored by Century Properties, which she endorses. From the same set of temporary photos, Wurtzbach and Stockinger are seen taking turns posing beside a poster of "My Perfect You."

Another photo from Wurtzbach showed they were seated beside each other inside the cinema, while Instagram posts from other guests at the screening had the couple posing beside each other. (See the slideshow of photos below.)

Wurtzbach and Stockinger's public appearance together, at no less than the movie she appears in with Anderson, puts to rest speculation that the couple's relationship may have been affected by rumors romantically linking the "My Perfect You" stars.

That came after Anderson's girlfriend, actress Bea Alonzo, unfollowed both him and Wurtzbach on Instagram, and deleted photos of him and posts promoting "My Perfect You" from her page.

Alonzo has made no comment on that development, and Anderson only gave a brief answer when asked on the status of his "love live," saying, "Ayos naman, steady naman."
