Netizens are asking if Zanjoe Marudo and Ria Atayde are an item. Sylvia Sanchez-Atayde, the latter’s mother, revealed that the two are still not officially together, but they are dating.
On October 9, via an interview, Korina Sanchez-Roxas asked Sanchez-Atayde if the rumors romantically linking Atayde and Marudo–is true.
“And talking about Ria, naku, may mga kuwento sa kanila ni Zanjoe Marudo. Totoo ba, galing sa nanay? Malalaman natin ang totoo. Ano ang totoo?” the host Sanchez-Roxas inquired.
“Ang huli naming pagkikita ni Ria, nag-usap kami — kasi hiwalay na kami ng bahay, e, solo na siya — ang sinabi niya, hindi pa raw.
“Pero, nagliligawan. Parang nagpaparamdaman, ganoon. Pero hindi ko masabi na oo talaga, kasi wala pang pag-amin, e. Wala pa talaga,” actress Sanchez-Atayde answered.
Marudo and Atayde co-starred in the 2017 series, My Dear Heart.
In August this year, pictures of the two in New York circulated on social media platforms, which sparked rumors of them being in a relationship.
Neither has addressed the rumors regarding the real score between them.
