MANILA, Philippines – Actor Gerald Anderson denied a tabloid report that he had a heart-to-heart talk with the mother of Sarah Geronimo during the taping of the actress-singer’s weekly show “Sarah G Live.”

According to a report on the Bandera’s blog site, Anderson was also in the ABS-CBN compound for a pictorial at the same time as the live taping of “Sarah G Live.” The report said he then visited and talked with Geronimo’s mother Divine at a dressing room.

But when asked about the issue by “The Buzz,” which aired on Sunday, Anderson denied that such a meeting took place.

“Hindi ho totoo,” Anderson said.

According to entertainment blogger Darla Sauler, the staff from the ABS-CBN show also said they did not see Anderson at the set of the show nor have they heard about a meeting between Anderson and Geronimo’s mother.

The Bandera article said its source for the information was Anderson’s friend, former “Pinoy Big Brother” teen housemate Fred Payawan, who also supposedly said that Anderson and Geronimo are still communicating with each other.

However, Payawan also denied making any statement to the tabloid.

“The Bandera article quoting me as the source of the story implying a meeting between Gerald and Mrs. Geronimo is completely false. Walang naganap na pag-uusap at wala tayong kinakausap regarding their personal lives. Sa kanila na ‘yun, let's leave it at that,” Payawan said in a statement to Sauler.
