BELA Padilla is tight-lipped whether ex-boyfriend Neil Ace is now dating Angel Locsin.
During the Lenten break, a photo of Locsin and Arce with friends taken in Hong Kong surfaced on social media. This fueled speculations that the two are now dating.
At the recent press conference of "Luck At First Sight," which is headlined by Padilla, she confirmed that her ex is dating again.
"Actually, alam ko naman na nagdi-date na si Neil. I didn't ask for specifics, but I'm aware that he's already in the dating scene. I'm okay with that. Super,” she said.
But when pressed if he's seeing Locsin, Padilla said she's not in the position to talk about it and Arce instructed her not to say anything.
"I'm not sure if I'm allowed to answer these questions because he's right there. And he firmly told me not to answer questions about him. Firmly being the operative word. Actually wala na akong say."
Padilla and Arce maintain a professional relationship even though they ended their romance late last year.
He is one of the producers of "Luck At First Sight" and even co-wrote the movie with the actress.
Padilla and leading man Jericho Rosales started shooting the movie December 2016 and the latter witnessed first hand the good working relationship between the ex-couple.
"It is difficult to shoot sa isang setting na magkatrabaho sila. And it's very difficult to talk about it in public. But to be involved and nakita ko sa kanila, they did great."
Meanwhile, this is the first time Locsin is rumored to be dating again after her much publicized break-up with television host Luis Manzano.
In a recent interview, the Kapamilya actress admitted that she's seeing a non-showbiz guy. (SunStar Philippines)
