Mario Maurer and Cacai Bautista
MANILA, Philippines -- Despite her initial denials, comedienne Cacai Bautista indeed fell in love with Thai superstar Mario Maurer, her close friend Maja Salvador revealed.
Salvador confirmed this when she and Bautista appeared on "Gandang Gabi Vice" on Sunday.
"Oo, may pag-iyak, may pag-walling," said Salvador, "kasi lumabas ang isyu."
"Nag-worry lang ako. Iniingatan ko din si Kuya, worried lang ako," Bautista explained.
Rumors linking Bautista to Maurer circulated online last February.
At the time, Bautista admitted that she was hurt by certain reactions to their supposed relationship. Among them were allegations that she was only using the Thai heartthrob to boost her popularity.
Bautista and Maurer said they became close friends over the course of filming of "Suddenly It's Magic," the Thai actor's first movie for Star Cinema.
