MANILA -- Luis Manzano and Angel Locsin, who both recently separated from their respective partners, prefer to keep mum on the possibility of getting back together, four years after their split.
The 32-year-old TV host, in a recent interview on "Buzz ng Bayan," did not give a direct answer when asked on his ties with Locsin, explaining it may complicate matters.
"It's very, very hard to comment on that kasi siyempre may pinagdaanan rin naman si Angel at ako rin, and to comment on that, siguro it will fuel certain flames na iwasan na siguro natin dahil baka mabigyan ng hindi magandang interpretasyon," he said.
The 28-year-old actress recently separated from her boyfriend of over a year, football player Phil Younghusband. Locsin confirmed the breakup in late October. They became a couple in May 2012.
Manzano also confirmed his split with actress Jennylyn Mercado late last month. They would have celebrated their second anniversary last October 18.
Coincidentally, Locsin and Manzano confirmed their breakup in October of 2009, four months after their actual separation.
Asked on the possibility of getting back together with Manzano, Locsin, in a separate interview also aired on "Buzz ng Bayan," similarly put off giving a direct answer.
"Baka 'yon po ang hindi ko masagot sa ngayon. Sa ngayon po, I'm very happy doing what I love most and helping people out," said Locsin, who at the time was taking part in the relief efforts of Philippine Red Cross for the victims of the recent typhoon.
"Hindi nalang muna ako nag-iisip kasi kakagaling ko lang rin naman po ng breakup so medyo mahirap po ngayon ang sitwasyon," she said.
Both Kapamilya stars were asked to comment on the matter after TV host Kris Aquino, on her talk show "Kris TV," teased Locsin about rekindling her romance with Manzano.
