In a recent interview with ABS-CBN News, Richard Gutierrez and Lucy Torres' only daughter said that her relationship with the "Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7" alum is strictly platonic. They're just friends, nothing more.

She said, "It’s fine with me [na ma-link kay Marco] because I know him well. He’s a really good friend of mine and I am grateful that I have a friend like him. We are not dating."

She continued, "My family knows him well. My parents think he’s a very good influence but right now, we both have priorities and dating is not one of them.”
And it's also of note that Marco has yet to make moves to take their friendship to the next level.
“Hindi naman po nanligaw si Marco in the first place," Juliana insisted, "we are really just friends."

Rumors linking the two young rising stars began when Marco was spotted having dinner with the Gomezes last April. That same month, he attended Juliana's senior prom as her date.
