Jennylyn Mercado Denies Benjamin Alves Is Courting HerKapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado is denying that she is being courted by Benjamin Alves. She said they are just teammates in the triathlon and she doesn't know why they are being linked.
Even when she was still with Luis Manzano, she already knew Benjamin, Jennylyn said. She added that not because she's single, every single man will be linked to her.
The rumors started because Benjamin visited her when she was hospitalized while taping for "Rhodora X." Jennylyn laughed at that and said the whole team visited her. There were about thirty of them, the actress said.
Right now, Jennylyn is enjoying her singlehood. "Mas masarap naman, single. Wala ka ng ibang iniiisip kumbaga family, sarili mo lang, tapos career, 'yon lang."
There is another guy being linked to Jennylyn--Luis Alandy. Jen said it might be better if Luis will be the one to answer that question. She agreed with what Luis said that he should be friends with a girl first before courting her.
Jennylyn is not ready yet to enter into a relationship. It's just been months since her relationship with Luis Manzano ended. "Wala e, di ba kung hindi talaga handa, huwag mong pilitin."
It's not that she hasn't moved on from Luis yet. The truth is, Jennylyn is just enjoying her single life. It's also not right to enter into a relationship when she just ended the last one.
She also wants to prove that her life doesn't evolve around her romantic relationships. "Talun nang talon sa isang relasyon, kumbaga hindi lang naman iyon yung nakakapagpasaya sa akin e." She is always kept happy by her family and her son, Alex Jazz.
She has moved on from Luis. In fact, she is actually ready to work with him and Angel Locsin, his current girlfriend. Luis and Angel broke up three years ago, but reconciled after Luis ended his relationship with Jennylyn.
Even though she has no boyfriend now, she can safely say that she has moved on from Luis. She is enjoying life now even without someone to make her feel giddy.
Also, Jennylyn has no time to go on dates and go out with guys. She is always taping for "Rhodora X" and she has no time for such things now. Instead of going out on dates, Jennylyn would prefer staying at home and spending her time with Alex Jazz.
She is so busy that she hasn't had time to even work out. Her followers on Instagram would notice that she hasn't gone to the gym. "Kasi kumbaga kesa sa i-workout ko, ipapahinga ko na lang kasama ko pa yung pamilya ko sa bahay."
