Maine Mendoza and Arjo Atayde have been rumoured to be dating for quite some time now. News became controversial after the two were spotted wearing matching Halloween costumes in an undisclosed public urban bar in BGC, Taguig City. The two however did their best efforts to keep the situation as low-key and as private as possible.
Recently, however, PEP.ph reported that Maine Mendoza finally broke her peace about the subject matter and finally addressing the months of speculation by the netizens and fans. The question was posed during the grand press conference of Jack Em Popoy (The Puliscredibles) last December 6. Of course, the management instructed the press not to ask personal questions during the panel interview that was why several of the news and entertainment reporters opted to wait for one-on-one interviews to ask several other queries to all stars. Included in the roster are Vic Sotto, Coco Martin and of course, Maine Mendoza.
Arjo Atayde, although a cast member of the movie as well, was not present during the press conference. Philippine Entertainment Portal first got a hold of Yaya Dub. When she was complimented on her looks for being blooming, the actress responded by saying that she was happy. When asked whether her heart was happy as well, the phenomenal star answered with an “Oo.”
In the past month, Maine and Arjo have been spotted by the press for a total of 4 times. This was also brought up during the one-on-one interview, which she replied with “Friends kami.” When further asked if the actor was courting her, she denied this claiming that the two of them were going out as friends.
PEP.ph then brought up their public sightings, which Maine answered by saying that they were “Getting to know each other first. Siyempre, paano mo makilala ang isang tao kung hindi kayo magsasama at mag-uusap?” When pressed about how they were getting to know each other, Maine laughed by telling Pep that “Hindi niyo nga tinanong dito [sa question and answer], pero kinorner niyo naman ako!”
She then changed her tone making it harder for the press to ask further about her relationship status with the actor. They tried to ask her how Arjo Atayde was doing, but the actress said that they should ask him instead.
Their movie, Jack Em Popoy (The Puliscredibles) will premiere on December 25 as an official entry for the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival.
