Heart Evangelista neither confirmed nor denied if she was indeed sharing a romantic relationship with Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, who on Oct. 5 admitted that the Kapuso actress is his girlfriend.
In an interview aired on “24 Oras” the same day, Heart said she’d rather keep things, most especially her love life, private.
“Actually, masaya ako, natutuwa din ako dahil hindi pala ako ang klase ng tao na mahirap mahalin. At the same time, we enjoy each other’s company. And we’re getting to know each other,” she said.
The “Luna Blanca” actress admitted that her past relationships taught her not to spill too much information to the public. “Natutunan ko sa nakaraan ko that in any kind of relationship, pag naging publiko siya, madaming mga nauunang intriga. And so, maganda na yung ganito na I’m a bit private.”
Consecutive sightings of Escudero, 42 and Heart, 27, hogged headlines the past months. Escudero, however, insisted that they were “meeting” and not “dating.”
It was on Kris Aquino’s daily show “KrisTV,” where Escudero served as guest co-host, that the solon aired the much-awaited revelation.
Aquino asked Escudero, “Is Heart Evangelista your girlfriend?,” to which he answered, “I would like to think so, yes.”
Following Escudero’s admission, Heart took to social networking site Twitter what seemed to be her take on the issue.
“Masaya at natutuwa ako na hindi pala ako yung klaseng Tao na mahirap mahalin and at the same time that were getting to know each other more..,” she posted Friday afternoon.
Escudero’s marriage with Christine Elizabeth Flores was annulled recently. Heart, on the other hand, ended her almost two-year relationship with Brazilian model and actor Daniel Matsunaga.
