Maine Mendoza is currently involved in an issue after Jake Ejercito, the son of Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada, posted a photo of a girl covering her face on his Instagram story on Saturday, November 25.
His post went viral all over social media because a lot of people are speculating that the girl was Maine.
The Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), asked Jake about the issue, and he replied via a text message on Sunday night, November 26. He refused to talk about the matter saying, “No comment na lang muna ako.”
When asked if he and Maine are dating, Jake responded, “Hindi rin, hahaha.” Meanwhile, a netizen asked the real status of their relationship via Twitter saying, “Ano ba kayo ni @unoemilio (Jake)? Ang sakit sakit na kasi!”
Maine replied, “Huh? We are friends! May mali po ba doon?” She and Jake first met in January 2016 when they worked together in the noontime show Eat Bulaga’s segment called “Kalyeserye.” It is also where Maine and her love team with Alden Richards started gaining phenomenal fame.
