In an interview with Push, Soriano admitted that working with Salvador did make their relationship closer than before. However, he clarified that his intention is purely professional, and not in any way romantic.
“I was just really motivating her. So yeah, the working relationship got close, I got to know a lot about her and her family. I got to meet her mom Thelma and her family, so in that regard yes we got close pero I look at her just like a little sister. Ganun lang talaga” he explained.
Paul said he is not really affected by the rumors. What really gets into him is the fact that this issue is starting to upset Maja.
“Hindi naman nakakapikon. Honestly, what I feel bad about is that Maja feels bad. She’s growing up, she’s still young and she doesn’t need that right now” he explained.
