MANILA – “Sa akin meron, hindi ko alam sa kanya.”
This was the answer of UAAP star Jeron Teng when asked by the entertainment press during Oineza’s 18th birthday party whether they already have a mutual understanding.
This after Teng admitted on national television that he wants to court the teen actress.
Teng, however, made it clear that they are not yet a couple.
“Sa amin na lang siguro 'yun. I won’t deny [kung kami na], open na open naman ako [about my feelings for her]. Super special siya and super proud ako sa lahat ng na-achieve niya. I’m just happy for her and I’ll just be here for her,” he said.
Meanwhile, Teng said he is honored that Oineza chose him to be his escort during her debut.
“Siyempre super happy ako. Nung sinabi nga niya sa akin hindi ako naniwala. Sabi ko ‘Hindi joke yan ah?’ Akala ko niloloko lang niya ako. Pero super happy ako,” the De La Salle University player said.
When asked why she decided to have Teng as her escort, Oineza said: “Wala na rin ako maisip na ibang escort kundi siya.”
This prompted Teng to ask Oineza if this meant that he was just her last choice.
To which, the actress immediately replied: “Ibig sabihin ikaw lang 'yung option. Ikaw lang! Special day kasi ito for me.”
Now that she is 18, Oineza said she hopes her career to flourish more.
“[Ang birthday wish ko], sana more blessings to come and 'yung mga kasama ko ngayon, lahat ng mga special na tao na nandito ngayon, sana makasama ko pa sila in many many more years,” she said.
