Miguel Tanfelix confirms he dated Bianca Umali, Barbie Forteza, Kyline Alcantara
Miguel Tanfelix revealed that he had romantic relationships with Kapuso actresses Bianca Umali, Barbie Forteza and Kyline Alcantara, and is currently pursuing one with Ysabel Ortega.
Tanfelix opened up about his dating history during his interview for “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” on Thursday, Feb. 9. TV host Boy Abunda showed photos of the celebrities that were romantically linked to Tanfelix in the past, and asked the young actor to talk about his relationships with them.
First in Abunda’s photo compilation was Forteza, who Tanfelix admitted he courted and got into a relationship with.
“Pino-post ko po siya dati. Naging kami po,” he spoke of Forteza. “Hindi po kami magkasama ng show dati…So ‘pag may taping siya, pinupuntahan ko at nagdadala ako ng pagkain.”
(I have posted about her in the past. We were together. We were starring in two different shows then, so whenever she had a taping, I visited and brought her food.)
Abunda proceeded to the next celebrity, Umali, and asked Tanfelix, “Are you friends [with Bianca]?”
“Yes, magkaibigan po kami,” he responded. “Naging kami po ni Bianca.” (Yes, we are friends. Bianca and I were together.)
Abunda recalled how Tanfelix asked permission from Umali’s grandmother to court the actress at the time, but speculations that he stopped courting her later arose among fans after Umali shared a cryptic post about betrayal. Alcantara was apparently dragged into the issue as she starred with Tanfelix and Umali in the 2017 TV series “Kambal, Karibal.”
“Hindi naging maganda [‘yung paghihiwalay namin ni Bianca] (We had a bad breakup),” Tanfelix continued, to which Abunda made a follow-up, “Did it have anything to do with Kyline [Alcantara]?”
“Siguro ‘yung dahilan ng paghihiwalayan namin, ‘wag na tayong mangdamay ng ibang tao. Irespeto natin ‘yung ibang tao,” said Tanfelix. (Maybe it’s better not to drag other people into the reason behind our breakup. Let’s respect other people.)
Tanfelix then spoke about Alcantara and confessed that they “had something special.” When Abunda reiterated his question whether or not the actors had an official relationship, Tanfelix answered affirmatively.
“[Ang] naaalala ko ay lagi kaming magkasama noon sa ‘All-Out Sundays.’ Do’n kami nagkadevelop-an,” he shared. (From what I remember, we were always together during “All-Out Sundays.” It was where we developed feelings for each other.)
Tanfelix also noted that he is open to having a friendship with Alcantara, but he’s not quite sure if the actress feels the same way.
Last on Abunda’s list of celebrities was Ortega, who Tanfelix said he is courting at the moment.
“Nililigawan ko po si Ysabel and nanay niya,” Tanfelix told Abunda, referring to the actress’ mom Michelle Ortega. “Nag-aaral po siya ngayon and gusto kong bigyan siya ng time. Kung maging kami man ngayon, baka maging distraction lang ako sa law school niya.”
(I am courting Ysabel and her mom. [Ysabel] is currently studying [law] and I want to give her the time [to focus on her studies]. If we ever make our relationship official now, I might be a distraction to her.)
Tanfelix also said that he and Ysabel are very open to each other, adding he believes he already has an 8.9/10 standing in pursuing the heart of the actress.
Tanfelix and Ysabel will be starring together in GMA 7’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the hit anime “Voltes V.” /ra
