MANILA – Former beauty queen Joanne Quintas is not dating actor-politician Joey Marquez, her handler has clarified.

"It's all about business. There is nothing going on between them. Joanne is very much married, and Joey is in a relationship with a non-showbiz girl right now. Please stop the issue. Joanne is busy with her business and living privately," Quintas’ handler said in a text message sent to the “The Buzz.”

Quintas is married to event organizer and entrepreneur Domini Primero and they have three children. Reports said the two are now separated but this information has yet to be confirmed. 

Marquez’s non-showbiz girlfriend, meanwhile, was seen public for the first time during the wake of the actor’s talent manager Douglas Quijano.

Reports about Quintas-Marquez’s alleged affair began after they were allegedly caught dating in a mall in Cubao, Quezon City. Later, alleged photos of them together have been uploaded on the Internet.

Late last week, Marquez denied the issue.
