The Kapamilya host Billy Crawford admitted that he is courting Coleen Garcia during the “Buzz ng Bayan” interview on Sunday, January 12, 2014.
Here’s his statement: “Yes, nililigawan ko. She is not my girlfriend yet, and I would love for her to be.”
“Coleen and I are not boyfriend and girlfriend. We are not a couple yet. That’s pretty much it,” Billy added.
They have been rumored that they are now in a relationship after their photo in New York went viral online.
The host-singer admitted that he and “It’s Showtime” co-host Coleen Garcia undeniably met up in New York for a date.
Billy did ask Coleen to watch the NBA match between the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks at the Barclays Center in New York City last December 27. He said that he bought the ticket beforehand and invited the latter to have a dinner after watching the game.
Billy Crawford said: “I know she really wanted to pull away at one point and really just didn’t want to have anything to do with me because of the speculations, because of everyone else speaking on our behalf. Pero ako bilang lalaki, I’ll pursue her. Paninindigan ko. I want to get to know her slowly.”
Here’s what he said to Coleen when he thanked her, “for giving me the opportunity to be myself, to be real and to try to get to know me despite all the things that’s going on.”
“You mean a lot to me. You motivate me into going to work every day and I just enjoy who I am now and I want to pursue of trying to get to know you better. I just want to say I’ll be here for you as a friend or maybe even more. Thank you, that’s all I want to say,” Billy added.
