MANILA - Jasmine Curtis-Smith did not shy away from questions regarding her rumored relationship with surfer Jeff Ortega.
On an episode of "Gandang Gabi Vice" aired Sunday, the 22-year-old Jasmine admitted that she and Ortega are already a couple.
"Oo," she simply said.
Rumors about the two first swirled when Jasmine was spotted with Ortega in a photo uploaded by her sister, actress and "It's Showtime" host Anne Curtis. Early April, Jasmine also celebrated her 22nd birthday with her rumored beau.
In the same interview, Anne, who was with Jasmine, said that she approves of Ortega.
"Masaya ako. Mabait talaga. Parang nakikilala ko na siya before pa. Tapos nakikita ko kung paano siya um-effort kay Daddy, kay Mommy ...cute," she said.
Anne, who has admitted to being vocal about her thoughts on the guys her sister dates, was rumored to have been the reason behind Curtis-Smith's split with singer Sam Concepcion.
Her name has since been cleared by Curtis-Smith, who said that her sister "had nothing to do with it."
