Finally, in today’s press conference for his upcoming movie, Marco Gumabao directly addressed the rumors linking him to actress-vlogger Ivana Alawi. The two have been the subject of speculations after a video showing them in what seems like a videoke session among friends went viral. In the said video, Marco’s hand is seen comfortably placed on Ivana’s thigh.
“Basically, kami ni Ivana, we’ve been friends for more than a year. Magbarkada po talaga kami and at the same time, we really are close, but we’re just friends,” Marco revealed today after PTV4’s Rise and Shine reporter Aina Medina asked him about the video.
After keeping mum and being vague during the ‘Di Na Muli presscon earlier this month, Marco became specific this time, “I know na maraming naintriga sa video pero magkakaibigan lang po talaga kami.”
VIVA’s TV and movie leading man also clarified that some news reports claiming that he’s inspired by Ivana based on the past presscon had false headlines. Marco said, “It doesn’t mean that when you say you’re inspired it’s always just because of one person. Inspired ako in general. I’m a very optimistic person.”
Marco is currently one of the lead stars of Viva’s November offering, romantic drama movie My Husband, My Lover. Joining him in the cast are Kylie Verzosa, Cindy Miranda, and Adrian Alandy.
My Husband, My Lover
Is it possible to have an affair with your own husband? Veteran director McArthur C. ALejandre, commonly known as Mac Alejandre, explores the seemingly impossible set-up in his new movie, MY HUSBAND, MY LOVER, written by the great Ricky Lee and starring four of the hottest stars of today’s generation, Marco Gumabao, Adrian Alandy, Cindy Miranda and Kylie Verzosa.
Alice (Kylie Verzosa) and Noel (Marco Gumabao) have a happy married life. Alice is a very successful woman and a dutiful wife to his kind and intelligent husband, Noel. But she is also a wild partner in bed to Dennis (Adrian Alandy), her kept man. There is nothing wrong with her marriage, but Alice just feels the need to keep both her husband and lover. Everything is going well until one day, Alice finds out that she’s pregnant. Not knowing who the father is, she comes clean to Noel and Dennis, and this decision completely changes her life. Noel decides to break it up with Alice, and Dennis vows to take care of her and her baby.
Noel has settled in a new relationship with a lawyer named Loida (Cindy Miranda), and Dennis is playing the role of a good husband and father to Alice and her son, even if they found out via DNA test that the kid is Noel’s. The kid suffers from a disease and dies pushing Alice to tell Noel the truth.
This meeting ends in a passionate sex between the legally married couple, who are both committed to their respective partners. The tables have turned and Noel is now the kept man. And things get more complicated when their partners enter the scene to claim what they believe are theirs.T
This project is the latest movie by director McArthur C. Alejandre, the director behind blockbuster adult dramas like The Annulment and In Your Eyes and the high-rating TV series Endless Love, Stairway to Heaven and Marimar. This is also the second time for Kylie Verzosa and Marco Gumabao to work together on a project. Their first project together was VIVAMAX’s original series “Parang Kayo Pero Hindi,” and it’s exciting to see how the chemistry between them has changed since their first project together.
