Former PBB housemates Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber compose one of the powerhouse loveteams in the showbiz industry today.
Maymay and Edward, collectively known as the MayWard, have respective successful careers in front of them and a huge fanbase who got their backs every single time.
However, it seemed like their fans are starting to get divided after rumors surfaced on the internet that Edward is in a relationship with someone else.
Yesterday, April 5, the two surprised their fans after releasing a joint statement at the same time via Instagram announcing that they are in no rush to be in a romantic relationship.
Here’s an excerpt of their message:
“Sa ilang taon naming pagsasama, sa trabaho man at sa personal, pareho po naming na-realize na sa estado ng buhay namin ngayon, we both are still very young, and there is so much more we still want to achieve in our lives.
"We both agree there is no need to rush into anything. This means not having a romantic relationship between us at this point. Pareho po namin na-realize that being the best of friends will even be more beneficial for us. Mas kumportable kami makakapag-trabaho. Wala pong pagbabago. Kami pa din ang magkasama dahil there’s no one else we would rather work with, than each other,”
Their announcement received mixed reactions from the public especially to their fans. Some respected and lauded their decision but others were clouded with speculations.
Rumors have surfaced the internet recently that Edward is allegedly dating model-actress Alexa Intong, aka Lexa Lauraine.
Photos of them seemingly implying that they are together during this quarantine period were also circulating online.
Maymay, for her part, allegedly deleted some photos of her and Edward on her Instagram feed even prompting some fans that she was betrayed by the latter.
The Kapamilya artists have yet to confirm these theories.
