ARE Presidential son Sebastian “Baste” Duterte and sexy actress Ellen Adarna in a relationship?
This after entertainment and fashion website Fashion Pulis posted a photo of Duterte and Adarna kissing each other.
It did not say when or where the picture was taken.
Yesterday, the management team of Duterte issued a statement on the photo of two kissing personalities.
“As the management team of Mr. Baste Duterte, we do not meddle in personal relationships of the celebrities we handle. They are entitled to be close to any persons they choose to. As for Baste, he is not married and he doesn’t label his relationships,” said Betchay Vidanes, head of Vidanes Artist Management, in a statement released to ABS-CBN.
The kissing photo got mixed reactions from netizens.
In April, Adarna admitted to ABS-CBN that she was in a relationship with a foreigner.
“Wala nang ligaw-ligaw pa basta dating lang, tapos kami na,” said Adarna, one of the former lead stars of “Pasion de Amor.”
Adarna was previously linked to actor Ejay Falcon when they appeared together in the hit Kapamilya afternoon series. But Adarna dumped Falcon.
The sexy star is the eldest child of the owner of a popular chain of motels in Cebu.
In June, Baste denied romantic links with Adarna.
In an exclusive statement issued to the late-night program “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN, Baste said: “May common friends kami kaya kami nagkasama-sama. Pagkakataon ko na ring magpasalamat sa kanya kasi very vocal s’ya sa pagsuporta sa papa ko during the campaign. Ganon lang ka simple. Pero expected ko na rin na intrigahin kami.”
Adarna, 26, also denied the rumors between her and the presidential son.
Baste is the third and youngest son of President Rodrigo Duterte by ex-wife Elizabeth Zimmerman. He has two children.
His siblings are eldest brother Paolo, vice mayor of Davao City, and lawyer Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio, mayor of the same city.
