Model and “La Luna Sangre” actor Kirst Viray finally aired his side regarding the long-standing rumors linking him and young comedienne-actress Kiray Celis.
In a story by PEP today, December 7, Kirst gave clarifications to their real status, and the issue of him allegedly using Kiray to achieve fame.
So, did Kirst and Kiray ever really become a couple?
Kirst answered, "Actually, sinagot na namin noong naglaro kami ng ‘Minute To Win It’, na we’re friends talaga. ‘Yung closeness naming dalawa, sobrang ganun talaga."
He also said that they are really sweet as friends, but Kirst admitted that they may have sent out mixed signals, causing some people to misinterpret things.
“Paano ba? We’re honest naman, 'yung sweetness namin, hindi talaga sinadya. Never naming pinagplanuhan 'yung mga ganun. Si Kiray kasi, sobrang malambing talaga siya. So ako, hindi ko naman siya inisip na parang may something kaya sobrang close talaga namin. Nag-a-out-of-town kami, ganun pa rin,” he said.
He made it clear he felt no romantic involvement with Kiray, and vice versa. “Same lang kami, equal lang. At hindi siya na-in love,” he said.
Did Kirst use Kiray to get fame?
Kirst denied that he used Kiray for fame and influence in showbiz to make a name for himself.
