Sam Milby is courting Jessy Mendiola, a revelation that came from Sam himself during the “The Buzz” interview last Sunday.
Jessy Mendiola and Sam Milby first worked together for a “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episode which aired last year.
Jessy was rumored to be the ex-girlfriend of Matteo Guidicelli while Sam was linked to Shaina Magdayao.
“Nililigawan ko si Jessy. She’s aware. I did let her know my intentions, yes. I like her, she’s beautiful. I like her simplicity. Hindi siya maarte,” – Sam said on the interview.
But when asked if Jessie is too young for him, Sam answered “I think a lot of times she’s misunderstood too. Masyado siyang bata pero she’s mature for her age. I can’t say na I know her that well but the times that I’ve hung out with her have been fun.”
Sam is 29 while Jessy is 20, a nine years difference.
When the “The Buzz” asked Jessy about Sam’s admittance, the actress made an statement through text message.
“Single ako at single siya so bakit naman hindi. Pero we go out lang naman and hang. Nothing super serious since alam niya priority ko ang career ko. He’s a very sweet and nice guy so I don’t want to close any doors naman and why not let him get the chance na makilala ako and ganoon din ako sa kanya,” – Mendiola said.
“Let’s see how it goes na lang,” the actress further added.
Jessy Mendiola will be the lead star of abs-cbn’s upcoming teleserye – Maria Mercedes.
