Inigo Pascual has finally spoken about the alleged relationship of his former on-screen partner Maris Racal and former Rivermaya frontman Rico Blanco.
Speaking to Bianca Gonzalez and MJ Felipe for "PopCinema," the singer-actor said that he couldn't be happier if ever the dating rumors are true.
“Wala pa naman akong masasabi pa, wala pa namang nagco-confirm [sa kanilang dalawa] or anything. For me, kung sila, masaya ako kasi siyempre alam ko kung gaano ka-idolo ni Maris ‘yun,” Inigo said.

Inigo also recalled how Maris used to request him to sing Rico's songs, proving how much of a fan she is.
“Noong love team kami ni Maris talagang as in pinapakanta sa akin ‘yung mga kanta ni Rico," he shared. "So, with them being friends, and the fact na nagka-collab sila dati, sobrang supportive ako doon. Kino-congratulate ko siya dahil alam kong sobrang idol niya ‘yun.”
With regards to the controversies surrounding their situation, Inigo believes there's nothing wrong with their alleged relationship.
“Kung ano man ‘yung balita, siguro we should all just be happy for them if they are together. Kasi love is love, and it’s a beautiful thing. And there’s so many people na in love na ganun din ‘yung sitwasyon so if ever man, let’s be happy for them. Wishing them all the best,” he said.
Inigo and Maris, collectively known as MarNigo, were an official love team who were also romantically linked to each other.
In 2019, Maris confirmed on "Tonight With Boy Abunda" that she and Inigo have parted ways on friendly terms after the singer "broke" her heart.
The two then reunited for the movie "Boyette, Not a Girl Yet" in 2020.
