After (eventually) winning Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach has been thrust into the spotlight — which means her past romances are officially the public’s interest now!
Right on the heels of her win, buzz surfaced on Monday that the 26-year-old might be dating the president of the Philippines, Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III!
But what’s really going on between them??
The recently crowned winner has been romantically linked to Benigno since the spring, even teasing the possible courtship in March when she appeared on Kris’ talk show Aquino & Abunda Tonight!
Playing coy about the extent of her relationship with the prez, she said at the time:
“I know him. I talk to him, yes. He’s very fun to talk to.”
But on Monday, the president’s talk show host sister, Kris Aquino, set the record straight! The royal romance isn’t real!
At least, one side of it isn’t…
Kris shared that while she and her three other sisters thought the pageant beauty was good for their 55-year-old brother, Wurtzbach didn’t really seem to be into the idea of dating him!
The talk show host said:
“She could have denied [that they were dating]. I don’t think she liked Noy ├óΓé¼┬ª I think she entertained him but the thing is, you can tell from her character [that she’s] single-minded.”
Maybe she just wasn’t interested in dating a man over twice her age — or too focused on the upcoming competition to think about dating!
Regardless of the non-romance, the president’s office extended a congratulations for Pia’s win! Read the full statement (below)!
“Today, the whole country unites in celebration over Ms. Pia Wurtzbach’s coronation as Miss Universe in the 2015 pageant in Las Vegas, USA. Throughout her journey, Ms. Wurtzbach showcased to the world the characteristic beauty, intelligence, and elegance for which Filipinas are renowned. In the first few moments of the original announcement, she showed tremendous poise and control, and even more tremendous graciousness when the real verdict was finally announced. We congratulate her for this success as the third Miss Universe of the Philippines, following in the footsteps of Ms. Gloria Diaz and Ms. Margie Moran-Floirendo.”
