Actor Piolo Pascual has confirmed that he and actress Shaina Magdayao have been exclusively dating for the past 5 years.
Shaina and Piolo have been rumored to be dating since 2012, when they were spotted together after an ASAP concert tour in Singapore.
In a statement given to Boy Abunda, however, Magdayao downplayed Pascual's declaration, saying that he has been a "great friend [she] can always count on." Instead, she said that they were "very special" to each other.
"Just for the record, he is free to date anyone he wants, the same way I'm free to date anyone I want," she was quoted saying.

" Magdayao added that it was "too soon to label things officially" and concluded that she was "thankful" for his presence in her life.
"Whatever Shai and I have, it's really something that we value.
When asked about the real score between them, Sam Milby said that he doesn’t want to do something that could destroy their friendship. Although they are not exclusively dating yet, Sam Milby noted that their friendship is growing and he is happy about it,.
The 30-year-old actor wanted to keep mum about their relationship, admitting that he doesn’t know how to answer questions so he was sometimes misinterpreted. Kilala niyo ako, hindi talaga ako magaling sumagot sa mga tanong.
But for Shaina, who said she is happy being single, it’s more important that she and John Lloyd are okay the way they are now (they’re friends, she said, but not close). Bakit ka pa gagawa ng friction with any other individual?
I’m just here, sa showbiz, sa mundong ito, to work,” she said.
