MANILA, Philippines – Fresh from the shoot of ABS-CBN's upcoming television series “Princess and I” in Bhutan, actor Enrique Gil finally broke his silence on reports linking him to actress Kim Chiu.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News during a pictorial for the show, Gil said it is not true that he is courting Chiu.

“Hindi totoo iyan. Lumabas [yung balita] nasa Bhutan kami noon. Wala, hindi talaga,” he said.

Gil said it is true that he and Chiu had an exchange of text messages in the past but he stressed that they are really just friends.

“Before nagka-text lang pero wala [talaga],” he said.

Chiu said the same thing when she was interviewed on “The Buzz” last week.

“Teka lang. Nahihiya na ako. Friends naman kami. Minsan nagkaka-text lang. Nakikipagkaibigan naman siya sa akin kasi nagkikita naman kami sa 'ASAP,'” she said.

Aside from Gil, Chiu is currently being linked to actor Xian Lim.

Gil, on the other hand, is being teased to his “Princess and I” leading lady Kathryn Bernardo.
