Is the mounting tension between Kim Chiu and Maja Salvador’s characters on the ABS-CBN primetime soap Ina Kapatid Anak also happening off-screen?
In an interview after Tuesday’s presscon to promote the Book 2 of the series, Kim was asked on the rumored romance of her Ina Kapatid Anak co-star and best friend Maja with her ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson.
“I was shocked and surprised. I didn’t expect this will happen,” she candidly admitted to being taken by surprise by the turn of events.
Kim said that “(Maja) asked permission from me. And I said, ‘Bakit kailangan pang magpa-alam, wala naman kay Gerald?’ Wala na talaga.”
“There’s nothing wrong with it (romance) as both of them are single. Let’s just be happy for the both of them,” she said, before adding, “and nakakalungkot lang kasi yung friendship na sayang,” referring to her and Maja’s friendship.
Kim clarified though that “I’m not being bitter over whatever is happening between them. Parang nalungkot lang ako kasi yung taong sinabihan ko nung down ako, parang kinain niya lang yung sinabi niya.”
Maja, in a separate interview at the same presscon, wouldn’t confirm whether she was dating Gerald or not after it was reported they were seen together at a luxury resort in Albay last December. “I can’t answer that…Maybe you should ask him (Gerald),” she said.
