Kristoffer Martin sheds light on the rumor that he is allegedly the main culprit for the recent split-up of Bea Binene and Jake Vargas.
“Honestly, that’s funny,” he says. “Of course, there’s no truth to it! Bea is just a friend.”
Speculations arose when it was reported that they were doing mountain-climbing together.
“That’s right! I wouldn’t deny that. But I don’t see anything wrong if Bea and I do the said activity together. It’s our common passion. And we’re not alone by ourselves. We’re with other friends. For the record, we haven’t really gotten out as in twosome. It’s always with a group.”
According to the good-looking Kapuso star, it’s impossible for him to become the third party in the couple’s break-up.
“Bea and Jake are both my friends. I appeal to those who made these all up to please spare me from the controversy. I don’t want my name to be dragged into the picture. As I’ve said, I have nothing to do with it.
“They have their reason why their relationship ended and they’re the only ones who can answer that. Personally, I hate to be a third party and ruin a relationship because I also don’t want that to happen to me!”
How’s his friendship with Bea amid the hot rumor?
“We’re good actually. We’re not affected mainly because we know the truth. Bea and I just laugh it off. We’ve been friends for so long, dating back to our Tween Hearts days. It’s surprising that it’s only now that we’re being linked romantically to each other. Definitely, we won’t let this malicious rumor get into our friendship,” avers Kristoffer.
In fact, given the opportunity, the competent lad is open to the idea of doing a project with Bea.
“Sure! We’ve worked together before in some GMA shows and it was nice, very smooth-sailing. Working with friends on the set is always a pleasant experience. And one more thing, it depends on the management. I’m in no position to choose who my leading lady would be.”
Asked about his love life, Kristoffer admits he’s got none at present.
“Well, it’s my choice! Actually, it’s been awhile since I really wanted to focus on my showbiz career as well as my studies. I’m not in a hurry. I’m certain that the right girl for me will come at the right time…”
There are talks that he and Joyce Ching already reconciled.
“That’s pure baloney! Nothing like that happened. Joyce and I are strictly friends at this point. We have the same perspective: career is on top of our priorities. Our working relationship is fine because we’re on the same page, so to speak,” ends Kristoffer.
Gabby Eigenmann admits he is quite nervous to be back in a villain role in the latest Kapuso prime time soap Pari Koy headlined by Dingdong Dantes.
“I think it’s just normal because my last project before this was Dading in which I was the titular role. It was a huge role for me and I got accustomed already to people calling me Dading when I’m outside. So now that I’m back as a contravida, I’m afraid that viewers will hate me again. Ha-ha-ha!” he states.
But the award-winning actor has no issue going back to a mean character after breathing life to a good one.
“Dading is unforgettable. It’s one role of a lifetime and I’m proud that it became a top-rater during its run. With Pari Koy, it’s a welcome thing for me. I’m known as a character actor. I want to do a variety of roles on screen. For me, it’s simply challenging.”
He worked with Dingdong in Endless Love.
“That’s right! That was years ago. And I was Marian Rivera’s tormentor there. I believe I was effective because many of their fans got angry with me then. But I believe that they’ve also matured at this point. They know that I’m just doing my job,” explains Gabby.
