Matteo Guidicelli Says Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo Is Just A FriendKapamilya actor Matteo Guidicelli denied he is courting Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo. He also clarified the rumored relationship between him and "Paraiso" co-star Jessy Mendiola.
News came out recently that Guidicelli has been crushing on Geronimo, and they became close during a show in the United States. Geronimo earlier said they were just friends.
During the launch of the social messaging application Line in Makati City, the actor clarified he and the singer-actress were merely friends. He also said he is not courting Geronimo, whose parents have been known for being strict.
When it comes to Mendiola, his co-star in ABS-CBN's "Paraiso," Guidicelli said he has yet to watch the video wherein the actress described their relationship as "almost there."
However, they didn't pursue their romantic link because of their busy schedules. The two became close during the taping of their show. They were even together in Guidicelli's family-owned resort in Cebu during the actress' birthday.
Guidicelli thanked Mendiola for her kind words, and said he will watch that video first before commenting about her interview.
The actor said he will never forget the times he spent with Mendiola on the set of "Paraiso." They were able to bond for six months, and he added it would be a privilege to work with the actress again in the future.
Mendiola, however, will be starring in the remake of Mexican telenovele "Maria Mercedes" with Jake Cuenca.
Although Guidicelli said he and Mendiola were very close, some reports claim they "broke up" via a telephone call. It also said the actor was the one who initiated the breakup.
Guidicelli quickly clarified such reports, and said that he is just focusing on his career now and his new-found sports activity--triathlon. The actor was a former car racer.
He will have several projects with ABS-CBN, including "Biggest Loser," "Iron Man" and "Galema" with Andi Eigenmann.
The actor didn't want to comment on the issue of him arguing with one basher on Instagram after that said "basher" questioned his sexuality. He dismissed the incident.
