Is President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III dating someone new, only days after he said his love life is practically "zero"?
After being linked to Filipino-Korean TV host Grace Lee, Aquino is now being linked to another Kapuso — actress Iza Calzado.
Some people reportedly saw the two on a date after the birthday party of singer Ogie Alcasid, according to a report on 24 Oras' Chika Minute last Monday.
The report said Alcasid introduced Calzado to some of Aquino's friends, who in turn introduced the actress to the President.
However, Alcasid denied the rumor that the two are dating.
"Hindi sila nagde-date. Nagkakilala lang sila sa party," Alcasid said.
According to the same report, Calzado's manager Noel Ferrer also denied that Calzado and the President are seeing each other. Meanwhile, Aquino's camp has not said anything about the rumor.
Malacañang on Tuesday refused to comment on the matter.
"Parang Wikileaks ‘yan eh. We don’t comment on the President’s social life so I will not comment on that," said Ricky Carandang, head of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office, at a press briefing in Malacañang.
In his speech to Filipino communities in Beijing Thursday last week, Aquino likened his love life to soda brand Coca Cola, saying that it changed from being "regular," and then "light," and now "zero."
Since his breakup with two-year girlfriend Valenzuela City Councilor Shalani Soledad in 2010, the bachelor President has reportedly dated a few women, including stylist Liz Uy, a friend of his celebrity sister Kris Aquino.
