MANILA – Kapuso actor-host Alden Richards and co-star Maine Mendoza or “Yaya Dub” have already met in person five years ago, according to rumors. A photo of the on-screen couple has even circulated in social media.
The photo supposedly showing Alden and Maine together was reportedly taken in an event held by Candy magazine.
Alden and Maine’s loveteam, AlDub, has been featured in noontime show Eat Bulaga’s ‘Kalyeserye.’ Since the popular tandem only interacted using a screen, with Alden in the studio and Maine in the streets, it was said that the two have not yet met in person.
Alden, for his part, claimed that he has yet to see Maine face to face.
“The good thing about po this tandem, Miss Jessica, personally po hindi pa kami nagmi-meet [ni Yaya Dub],” he said in an interview with journalist and host Jessica Soho.
(The good thing about this tandem, Miss Jessica, is that we still haven’t met personally.)
But with Alden and Maine’s photo together going viral, several netizens began to ask whether the on-screen couple has indeed not yet seen each other personally or if this was just a gimmick of the noontime show.
