Host-singer Billy Crawford confirm about the real deal between him and his “It’s Showtime” co-host Coleen Garcia in an interview on the “Buzz ng Bayan” last Sunday (01/12/2014).
“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,” he said.
Crawford also admitted that he and Garcia indeed met up in New York for a date.
“It’s vacation time. The ‘Showtime’ family, we all had different places to go. I was talking to Coleen and I said I was going to New York to see old friends, to see my family. And then Coleen said, ‘Oh, I’ll be in New York too, with my friend.’ And then later before leaving, I found out that Ryan Bang was also going to New York. We met up with Ryan as well,” he said.
“But to be honest with you, yes, I did ask Coleen to watch the game with me before leaving. I bought the tickets beforehand and I said, ‘You know what, I would love to go there in New York and actually spend time with you, to watch the game and have dinner,’” he explained, referring to the NBA match between the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks at the Barclays Center in New York City last December 27.
But Crawford was quick to add that Garcia was never the third party that led to the break-up of his relationship with former girlfriend, singer Nikki Gil.
“I kept my mouth shut. I didn’t talk. I think that was my fault. But ako, pinanindigan ko 'yung sa akin and kung ano ang alam ko, and Coleen is definitely not part of my past relationship at all,” he said.
