MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - Actress-host Kris Aquino got upset with Makati Mayor Junjun Binay over statements he made in a Philippine Star interview.
In her official Twitter account, the President's youngest sister said she was surprised when Binay told the Philippine Star that they were dating.
"He was asked if we were dating & he said yes we’re good friends & confirmed our justin bieber concert w/ our respective kids,” she said in her Twitter account.
Aquino said that since separating from her husband, star cager James Yap, she has never gone out on a date with anyone.
"In the 14 months since my separation, I haven't dated anybody. I thought Jun & I were friends but after what I read I've come to the conclusion a gentleman doesn't really say stuff like that especially when it can be read as 'patama' to his friend," Aquino added.
She also said that Binay's "witty" statements about marriage and separation started their rift.
"There's a quote attributed to him about marriage, separation & remarrying. I know he tried to be witty, but it offended me," Aquino said.
In the Philippine Star article, the Makati mayor admitted that he and Aquino had gone out together and were dating.
"Yes, we are good friends. We saw the Justin Bieber concert together, and by gosh, when you’re with Kris, everybody wants to have a picture with her,” he said.
Asked if marriage is still a possibility after the death of his wife, the mayor replied: " “Why do people marry? Because of lack of knowledge...Why do people separate? Because of lack of experience...Why do people remarry? Because of loss of memory.”
Aquino said the mayor apologized for his statement. However, she said she came to realize that it would better for them to avoid each other.
"In conclusion, nag sorry si Jun last night but I guess it's truly best for us to just avoid each other so no more talk about us," Aquino said.
As of posting, these tweets on Aquino's Twitter account had already been deleted.
In a recent interview, Aquino revealed that the mayor is already dating somebody else.
Aquino made the statement to end speculations about her and Binay.
She stressed that there is nothing going on between them except friendship.
She said she is not yet ready to enter into another relationship after separating from her husband of 5 years, James Yap.
