YOKOHAMA, Japan?Yes, they?re dating. And yes, he has broken up with Valenzuela Councilor Shalani Soledad.
President Aquino confirmed reports Friday night that he and celebrity stylist Liz Uy were seeing each other.
?We have been spending some time together as our schedules allow it. But I guess at this point, that is the extent of it,? he told reporters who asked him to comment on reports from Manila of the blossoming romance between him and the 28-year-old former love interest of actor John Lloyd.
?Is there anything wrong with that?? he said when initially asked if he and Uy were going out on dates.
Mr. Aquino also said at first that he was ?meeting a lot of people.?
Asked later whether he was courting her, Mr. Aquino did not give a direct answer.
?I?m just recovering also from a recent engagement and there are many things to attend to,? he said.
At one point, after he was told that celebrity manager and TV host Boy Abunda had confirmed he and Uy were dating, the President retorted that Abunda was ?not my spokesman.?
