Ballsy Aquino-Cruz says P-Noy is exclusively dating stockbroker Len Lopez
Ballsy Aquino-Cruz has revealed that her brother President Noynoy Aquino is exclusively dating Deutsche Bank stockbroker Len Lopez, reports PEP.ph and ABS-CBN News.
"Good for him," she said at the birthday celebration of Senator Jinggoy Estrada on Saturday. "She’s very nice."
The President’s celebrity sister Kris Aquino earlier said that he is exclusively dating someone she refused to identify. "I would like to leave it at that because the girl is already starting to (become) comfortable with us," Aquino said. "Kasi baka sabihin ng babae kahit okay si Noy kung magkakaroon naman siya ng sister-in-law na kasing daldal ni Kris, eh huwag na. So ibigay na natin sa kanya ’yon (The girl might be okay with Noy but she might not want to have a sister-in-law as talkative as me. Let’s give it to her)."
A friend of Lopez who refused to be named told YES! in the magazine’s March 2011 issue that the "very private" stockbroker "turned off her phone" when the news about her and the President broke.
"She’s really very intelligent and highly independent," the source told YES! "She’s very stylish. Easily, she’s one of the most sophisticated women I know... She loves to eat. She’s always the first person to know where to eat, both here and abroad." The source added, "She’s well read, well bred and well fed."
Asked why Lopez has remained single, the source told YES!, "She’s a golden child... She can afford to have standards."
The source also told YES! about Lopez’s passion for reading and said, "One of her favorite authors is the Turkish author Ohran Pamuk." YES! wrote, "Although her reading list suggests a serious personality, Len also lets her hair down once in a while. Her secret pleasure, our source tells us, is watching the Twilight saga."
