Last July, actor Derek Ramsay put an end to long standing speculations that he is dating actress Cristine Reyes when he admitted that he is in a relationship with a non-showbiz girl. He repeatedly clarified that he is only friends with Cristine and even vowed not to get romantically involved with any one from show business ever again because “it’s complicated,” as he have experienced with ex-girlfriend Angelica Panganiban.
Today, Ramsay is singing a different tune. The actor has been exchanging sweet nothings with Reyes in photo sharing website Instagram which made some of their followers think that there is something romantic going on between them.
When asked by a follower on his official Twitter account about the rumors and his previous statements regarding getting invloved with someone from showbiz, the actor replied that he is eating his words.
“I did say that I’ll never date someone from showbiz and that I’d never date Cristine coz she is a friend. I eat my words,” Derek said on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Cristine neither confirmed nor deny rumors linking her to Derek during the press conference for her upcoming drama series Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin held on Wednesday. When asked by the press about her love life, the actress said she is single but immediately retracted her statement and said that she is only joking.
On whether she and Derek are already an item, Cristine told members of the press that she can’t answer it just yet and asked them to give her some time.
“Puwedeng bigyan n’yo muna ako ng time dahil hindi ko pa alam kung paano ko sasagutin iyan sa ngayon?” she said.
“Hindi ko talaga alam kung paano iyan sasagutin sa ngayon. I swear hindi ko pa talaga alam. Gusto ko kasi if ever man na may sasabihin ako, alam n’yo yun, lalo na on cam, ano yung sigurado na.” she explained.
According to a report published in Yahoo! Philippines OMG! on Thursday afternoon, Derek confirmed that they are already a couple.
“Yes, we’ve been on for one day,” Derek said in a phone interview with Yahoo! Philippines OMG!
Cristine and Derek became close while filming the box office hit No Other Woman in 2011. They will be reunited in the upcoming movie, My Trophy Wife, with Heart Evangelista and John Estrada.
