MANILA - De La Salle University star Jeron Teng on Thursday confirmed that he is now dating courtside reporter Jeanine Tsoi.

In an interview on morning talk show "Magandang Buhay," Teng gamely opened up about his personal life months after his breakup with young actress Jane Oineza.

Last week, Tsoi, a UAAP courtside reporter, got a big surprise when Teng visited her on her birthday. The athlete also posted a photo of him and Tsoi as he greeted her on her special day.

Asked if he and Oineza have remained friends, Teng said: "Ah, di ko alam. Okay naman siguro."

Without directly talking about his past relationship with Oineza, Teng gave his take on why some relationships don't always work out. 

"Siguro 'yung differences lang, it's the way na lumaki ka, 'di nagkakaintindihan, not meant to be, the way you look at things," he told the show's host Karla Estrada.
