MANILA – Anne Curtis just laughed off rumors that she and her long-time boyfriend, restaurateur and food blogger Erwan Heussaff, have split up, as reported by popular showbiz blog Fashion Pulis.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News after her “AnneKapal” concert on Friday, Curtis said she doesn't know who is behind the rumors.
“I think whoever started that, nice try of making negative publicity but it's not true,” she said. “I don't know who started it pero at least nalinawan naman kagaad, within the same day. It was clear naman that it's not true.”
Last Wednesday, Heussaff took to Twitter to address the story on the blog, which cited a "very reliable source" in confirming the alleged breakup.
"Thanks for the concern, but let's remember that FP isn't BBC, there are more veracious sources of information out there. We are fine," he said.
Heussaff also reacted to the story's comment on his and Curtis' "behavior" on their respective social media accounts.
"Also, I'm not in showbiz, so my relationship is mine to keep precious and not yours to devour," Heussaff said. "If I don't post about it, that's my prerogative."
Asked why Heussaff seemed sarcastic in his tweets, Curtis said, “He's not showbiz so he does not really get the whole ‘Bakit may tsismis na lumabas?’ Hindi niya pa nage-gets kaya medyo sarcastic 'yung dating nung post.”
She, however, reiterated that both of them are “super fine.”
Meanwhile, Curtis heaved a sigh of relief her second major solo concert at the Araneta Coliseum turned out to be successful.
“Sobrang ikling panahon lang [kami nag-prepare] because every day kami nagte-tape ng ‘Dyesebel.’ That's why may sense of relief kasi kahit na alam kong konting panahon lang 'yung meron kami to prepare, na-achieve naman 'yung kailangan naming gawin,” she said.
Asked what she thinks is the highlight of her concert, Curtis said, “Masaya 'yung opening. 'Yung death-defying stunt ko, I think 'yun 'yung parang surreal. Sobra akong nagpapasalamat sa Araneta for allowing me to do it.”
“To be honest, when I first tried it na ganun kataas, hindi ko magawa 'yung flips. Ayaw pa ng loob ko. To know that it was successful, sobra akong happy,” she added.
Curtis said another highlight would be her duet with Regine Velasquez.
“'Yun talaga ang isa pang bonggang bongga highlight. Pati 'yung kay Sir Ogie (Alcasid), Sir Martin (Nievera), Robert Sena, talagang legit singers. But to sing ‘On The Wings of Love’ with Ms. Regine Velasquez was just crazy,” she said.
