Remember that time when Enrique Gil got drunk in an airplane and reportedly harassed Jessy Mendiola while they were on a flight for their ‘ASAP’ taping? The incident caused Luis Manzano to defend the actress and since then the two have become quite close.
Fans were quick to claim that the two immediately dated following the incident. That was back in September of 2015. By July 2016, ABS-CBN News reported that Luis finally admitted there was something going on between him and Jessy.
According to him, “Lumalabas kami. Kasi kapag-deny ko ‘yon ay magagalit kayo sa aking lahat. Mukha naman akong tanga kapag dininay ko ‘yon.”
Their relationship was met with controversies because Luis had just ended his relationship with Angel Locsin while Jessy just broke up with JM De Guzman.
After admitting they were together, the two started to post more pictures of each other on Instagram. They were accompanied by sweet captions and followers and fans of the two sang praises for their burgeoning relationship.
In fact, Jessy also appeared in Luis’ show, ‘Minute to Win It,’ as a contestant. The two were unable to show any kind of public display of affection, but the chemistry between them was described as “palpable.”
Just like many celebrity couples, Jessy admitted that her relationship with Luis started on rocky ground because she was initially tagged as the one who caused the breakup between him and Angel — something which the actress vehemently denied.
Now, the two are happily enjoying their lives, as evident in Luis’ latest Instagram post.
He posted a picture of two cockroaches making love with the caption, “Ang ipis na may lovelife at sex life, please tag a friend na tinalo pa ng ipis” with a series of laughing-with-tears emoji.
