Mara Clara’s Kiray Celis is being romantically linked to Piolo’s son, Iñigo Pascual.
It all started when the young actress tweeted a picture of her and Iñigo some days ago.
Boy Abunda picked-up the issue and asked for Kiray’s explanation during the July 20 episode of Showbiz News Ngayon. In the show’s “Just Friends?” segment last Friday, Kiray clarified that she is not in a romantic relationship with Iñigo and that they are merely good friends.
“Nagkakilala kami sa ‘ASAP’, pero ‘di ko siya pinansin. Napansin ko lang siya nung Star Magic party,” the 14-year-old Kiray said.
Kiray also explained that the picture was taken when she and Iñigo went out to watch Harry Potter and had dinner together with friends and relatives. She also added that they went swimming afterwards.
“Honestly si Iñigo ‘yong nagplano. Nanood na kami ng sine, ‘Harry Potter,’ with friends. Kasama ‘yong family ko. Kasama ko si Mama at saka si Papa.” she said.
Kiray clarified that she and Iñigo are just friends although they have a “term of endearment” for each other.
“Tawag ko sa kanya ‘kuya sexy.’ Tawag niya sa akin ‘ate sexy,’” she shared.
SNN asked Piolo Pascual if he approves the blossoming special friendship between Kiray and his son. The Ultimate Heartthrob had this to say:
“Pinagagalitan ko nga si Kiray e, kasi nagpapaalam ‘tong anak ko gusto kasing umattend sa birthday niya sa sabado. Ewan ko lang kung mapapayagan ko,” he said.
