Jake Ejercito denied the rumors of him and Maine dating, following his viral Instagram story post on Saturday, November, 25.
In his post, it showed a girl covering her face which fans speculated to be the Dubsmash Queen, Maine Mendoza, merely basing on the watch she’s wearing.
Pep tried to get Jake’s side on the issue by sending him a text message. He was asked to confirm if it was really Maine on the photo, and he bluntly replied: “No comment.”
The issue has since been a trending topic on social media. According to Pep, they sent the former President’s son the message on Saturday, but he was only able to respond Sunday night.
“No comment na lang muna ako.” This was Jake’s statement.
As a follow-up question, he was also asked if he was dating Maine, but he again replied: “Hindi rin, hahaha.” [Also, no. hahaha.]
On the other hand, Maine admitted that the young man was just a friend by answering a hurting fan who’s asking for the real score between her and Eat Bulaga Kalyeserye co-star, Jake. “Huh? We are friends! May mali po ba doon?” [Is there anything wrong?]
