Kris Aquino denies supposed mall date with Junjun Binay, says she was out with her sons and Vice Ganda
Balitanghali report: Kris Aquino denies "dating" Junjun Binay
In an interview aired by The Buzz on September 5, TV-host-actress Kris Aquino denied reports she went out on a date with Makati Mayor Junjun Binay somewhere in Glorietta 4 on August 30, reports PEP.ph. Photographed and caught on video by Tweetbiz, the two were spotted with Aquino’s sons Joshua and Baby James, along with other people. The video even shows Baby James asking Aquino if Binay is her boyfriend, to which she laughingly says no. Binay has been linked to Aquino ever since she said she would date him under certain conditions,
Aquino claimed she was at the mall to watch In Your Eyes with comedian Vice Ganda, while her sons watched Cats and Dogs and played games at Timezone. "It just so happened Mayor Junjun was also there with his family. Nag-hello sa akin. At lumabas na nagmo-malling kami! Hindi talaga totoo (He said hello to me and then it got out that we went on a mall date! It’s not true)."

Vice Ganda (whose real name is Jose Marie Viceral), backed up Aquino’s comment, according to PEP.ph. "As in hindi sila nagkasama kahit ng limang minuto... Parang nagbigay respeto lang since nasa isang lugar sila at magkakilala sila (Kris and Mayor Junjun only recognized each other’s presence. They didn’t even spend five minutes together at the time)." Vice Ganda, however, confirmed that Baby James asked Aquino if Binay is her boyfriend, and that she denied it. The comedian added that Binay said he is "just a friend."
Aquino, who has filed a petition for her marriage with cager James Yap to be declared nullified, told The Buzz, "In my position right now, kung may makita lang akong katabi, siya na matsitsismis sa akin next... Kaya ko ito itinutuwid kasi na-bother ’yong mga kapatid ko. At sinabi nila i-correct ko daw ito kaagad (In my position right now, I can be rumored to be dating anybody seen next to me. I’m clarifying this rumor now because my siblings were bothered. They told me to immediately set the record straight)."
