JK Labajo on Maureen Wroblewitz: We're good friends
MANILA, Philippines – JK Labajo clarified that he and Asia's Next Top Model season 5 winner Maureen Wroblewitz are just friends, after reports came out that they were an item.
In an interview with reporters to promote the finale of A Love to Last on Tuesday, August 29, JK said that he and Maureen knew each other even before she had won the reality tv contest.
"We’re good naman. Of course we’re best friends. Why wouldn’t we go out? Na-meet ko kasi yung mga fans niya, fans ni Claire [Hartell], so andun sila sa set so eventually dun kami nagkakilala.
(I met her fans because her are also fans of Claire [Hartell], so they would be there on the set so envetually, we ended up meeting.)
"This was before that (show she joined) and eventually we became close friends kasi nga (because) we share the same life – how she lost her mom and how we’re both half-German," JK said.
According to JK, Maureen has not changed despite the fame and popularity she has garnered. In fact he finds it amazing that Maureen is still down to earth about her status.
When asked to comment on the obvious chemistry between them in their photos, JK joked that it was only because of Maureen's beauty that he looked especially handsome.
He reiterated that he's not courting Maureen.
“No. She’s my best friend. Someone else owns her heart," he said.
Asked what qualities Maureen has that would make her a good girlfriend, JK said: "Everything about her is great, everything about her. Mabait siya (She's nice), down-to-earth...That fact [alone] – it’s amazing. To think saan siya nanggaling ngayon na (of where she been since becoming) Asia’s Next Top Model pero andito pa rin siya (but she's still here). That’s nice."
He also said while Maureen may look prim and proper on camera, sheis very talkative in real life.
