A year after going public, TV show host, Luis Mansano and ‘Maria Mercedes’ star Jessy Mendiola’s relationship was very recently rumored to be on the rocks.
In an interview with Pep, Luis immediately denied it; adding a reminder to the public not to believe everything they read, see or hear from the internet because even his mom, Lipa City Representative, Vilma Santos texted him asking about his relationship with Jessy.
But Luis was not able to stray away from other questions like whether or not they are planning to get married. He described his relationship with Jessy as “very steady” when ABS-CBN interviewed him.
“Napag-uusapan namin, we are planning,” said Luis with regards to settling down. He also did not fail to mention their huge age gap and recognizes the fact that she’s young and still has responsibilities for her family and wants to do a lot of things for herself. He doesn’t want to take that away from her so he respects her timetable the same way she respects his, Pep reported.
And while on the subject, he also took the time to defend Jessy from the people bashing her for not being there to take care of him when he got a foot fracture while hosting ‘The Voice.’ He said she was out of the country for work and not for a vacation. He added that his injury wasn’t that serious at all. He also put emphasis on how much of a loving caring girlfriend Jessy is to him.
