LOOK: Arjo Atayde, Maine together in photo posted online
MANILA, Philippines — A photo of Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza posing together was posted in a verified Facebook page of the actor after he confirmed that they were “exclusively dating.”
The two stars posed with a companion in a photo posted on a verified Facebook page of Atayde on Wednesday.
But the actor denied posting the photo, as seen in an Instagram story posted the same day. Atayde said that the Facebook page was not his account.
This was after Atayde confirmed the dating rumors surrounding him and Mendoza last month: “We’re exclusively dating. I’m at my happiest right now.”
While the 28-year-old actor happily announced the real score between him and Mendoza, he also expressed dismay to the online bashing he has received.
Atayde’s mother Sylvia Sanchez also recently appealed to critics to stop bashing and even sending death threats to her son.
Mendoza, 23, is known to be one-half of the phenomenal love team “AlDub” with Kapuso actor Alden Richards formed through noontime show “Eat Bulaga.” /cbb
