MANILA -- KC Concepcion is clueless as to how rumors romantically linking her to Phil Younghusband started, saying the only instance they ever spoke was during a televised interview more than a year ago.

The 28-year-old actress addressed the rumor in an interview with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe, shortly after a press conference held Thursday for the Metro Manila Film Festival entry, "Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story."

"Honestly, ang tagal ko na ring naririnig 'yan," Concepcion said, when asked to explain her supposed ties with Younghusband. "Ayoko na nga mag-comment about it, kasi nakakapagod na rin 'yung tsismis na wala namang pinaggagalingan."

She continued, "Ako, unang-una, wala akong... Hindi ko siya kilala. I mean, once ko lang siya nakausap siguro, which is 'yung interview pa with 'yung girlfriend niya at the time."

Concepcion was referring to the defunct ABS-CBN talk show "The Buzz," which she co-hosted from 2010 to 2011. Younghusband's girlfriend at the time was actress Angel Locsin, who confirmed her breakup with the football player in October this year.

In denying rumors linking him to Concepcion last week, Younghusband similarly mentioned the interview, saying it was the only time he ever met the "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" actress.

Publicity stunt?

As to how the rumor about her and Younghusband surfaced, Concepcion mentioned the possibility of it being a supposed publicity stunt for Locsin's upcoming series.

The "One More Try" star is set to make her drama series comeback via "The Legal Wife," which also stars Maja Salvador, Jericho Rosales and JC de Vera.

"Ang hindi ko rin alam kung part 'to ng promo ng magiging teleserye ng ex-girlfriend niya," Concepcion said, referring to Younghusband and Locsin. "Pero sana naman, huwag na nila ako idawit or isama sa gano'n kasi may mga iba namang nangyayari sa buhay ko."

"Parang hindi ko na kailangang bigyan pansin 'yung ibang bagay na... Napaka-busy ko rin. Ang dami kong ginagawa, bakit ako tsinitsismis?"

Concepcion clarified, however, that she bears no ill feelings toward Locsin or Younghusband. "I have nothing against him. Pero hindi ko siya... Pati si Angel, hindi ko naman siya... Hindi kami magkaaway, hindi rin kami close, so hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling."

"Baka naman may mga tao sa paligid na gusto kaming i-connect, o gusto kaming sirain, or siraan," she added. "Pero wala talaga kaming konek, so hindi ko talaga alam kung bakit kailangan akong isama sa ganyan. Alam naman nilang wala."

In a separate interview early this week, Younghusband was asked on the possibility of having a romantic relationship with Concepcion. The Azkals striker brushed off the question, saying he is "still in love" with Locsin.
