Luis Manzano puzzled by rumor linking girlfriend Jennylyn Mercado to Paolo Contis

By Pilar Mateo, · Friday, September 28, 2012


Luis Manzano was at a loss when the media asked him Thursday night about the rumor he and girfriend Jennylyn Mercado have parted ways because she allegedly caused the breakup of Paolo Contis’ marriage to Lian Paz.

During the press conference for his latest movie “This Guy’s In Love with You Mare”, the actor and game show host gamely addressed the issue and dissected it from all sides.

First, he proclaimed that he and Jennylyn are not only doing fine, their relationship is “getting serious”.

Luis was unequivocal: “Hindi kami nagkakalabuan ni Jen. Not even for a single day na may nangyayaring ganoon sa amin. Kaya maski ako nagulat kung bakit may nasulat o nag-sulat na on the rocks na raw ang relationship namin. Ngayon pa na mas sigurado na ako where I am.”

He was more dumbfounded by the news than Jennylyn was. “Ako ang mas nagulat sa balita. Things were blown out of proportion. Nagsalita na si Jen about it,” he said.

Jennylyn, of course, refuted the rumor just as Paolo himself did. Luis is aware that she and Paolo worked together in the GMA series “Futbolilits” last year. “And during that time, dinadalaw ko na siya sa taping nila. Nakakagulat lang na ang maging balita eh nagkakalabuan kami,” he said.

Curiously, Luis revealed that he was so bothered by the rumor that he called up Lian. Although he was mum on the details of their conversation, he thought it necessary to clear the air for all parties involved.

“Siyempre, it was para ma-clear lahat ng mga kumalat at lumabas na wala namang katotohanan. Gusto rin naman siyempre naming marinig ang side ng bawat isa. And at the end of the day, maging maayos ang lahat. Like, everyone’s going through something,” he said.

Luis also defended Jennylyn against accusations she snubbed a recent presscon organized by the Belo Medical Group on her behalf just so she could avoid being grilled about her alleged affair with Paolo. The fact of the matter was she was in hospital.

“The day before the presscon, sinabi na niya sa akin na medyo masama ang pakiramdam niya. Nung mahirapan na siya huminga, nagpadala na siya sa hospital dahil 38 na rin ang lagnat niya. Inakala na ng iba, umiwas siya,” he said.

The actor is thankful to Paolo for clearing Jennylyn’s name. “Alam ko, Paolo also has a lot in his mind. Kaya mas naa-appreciate ko ‘yung nagawa niya pa for Jen. Na siya namang nararapat,” he noted.

For Luis, this whole rigmarole has obviously been much ado about nothing. What he is most thankful for is the state of his relationship with Jennylyn, which ought to silence all doubters and cynics.

“We both know we still have a long way to go. Pero more than I, mas mahusay siyang mag-alaga. Kung tungkol sa level where we are now, I can honestly say, we are in a very serious relationship already,” he proclaimed.
