Teen King Daniel Padilla vehemently denied that the alleged viral “kissing photos” showing him with Kathryn Bernardo at an airport that made rounds recently on the micro blogging site Twitter is truly what it looks like.
In a press conference held last week for their upcoming movie, Daniel has finally spoken up and cleared the issue once and for all. Although he admits that he is aware of the said photos, he said, however, that he was not kissing Kathryn.
The Teen King said he often squeeze Kathryn’s face and makes fun of it. Yet, he said, he is not allowed to kiss Kathryn. “Diyos ko naman. Bawal yun dito,” he said.
(“I’m not allowed to do that. That’s prohibited,” he said.)
The supposed “kissing photos” transpired during the time that the famous Philippine showbiz love team had just finished the four-stop “One Magical Night” tour in Canada with fellow Star Magic artists Kim Chiu, John Lapus and Marcelito Pomoy.
One of the photos shows the young actor holding Kathryn’s neck with both hands in an angle wherein the actress’ back was to the camera; obstructing her and Daniel’s faces.
Earlier, Kathryn said on an interview that what was captured on cam was just among their ‘light moments’ where the young actor was making fun of her face through soft squeezes on her cheeks which he usually do.
The Teen Queen also cleared that she does not have any problems with Daniel being “clingy” or touchy because they are very comfortable with each other.
Meanwhile, the famous tandem, popularly known as KathNiel, will be having its newest movie, featuring two of the showbiz industry’s icon; Lorna Tolentino and veteran actor Gabby Concepcion as co-stars.
Star Cinema, ABS-CBN’s movie outfit,’ briefly described the movie, which will be directed by Rory Quintos, as a ‘romance about people who are broken but faithfully search for healing.’
