MANILA -- “Martha Cecilia's Kristine Series" star Zanjoe Marudo dismissed rumors saying he is a bad influence to Rayver Cruz.

Zanjoe said it is a natural thing for men to sometimes have drinking session with friends.

He added they went out to grab some drinks in the US, but Rayver had allergies with alcohol that is why the news was blown out of proportion.

Rayver, for his part, dismissed the rumors too and said that Zanjoe has been a good friend of his for quite some time now. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
