Marco Gumabao is friends with Jake Cuenca.
It is as such that he thought it best to call him up first before engaging in a love scene with Jake’s girlfriend, Kylie Verzosa for Viva’s “My Husband My Lover.”
He told us: “Syempre, I had to ask him for his blessing kasi kahit sabihin nating trabaho ‘to, as a gentleman and as a brother to him, I felt I had to.”
And how did Jake react?
According to Marco, Jake texted him back and told him: “Bro, you have my blessing, galingan n’yo,”
Of course, he obliged.
According to Marco, as passionate as the love scene might appear onscreen describing it as “mainit talaga,” he made clear everything was executed “professionally” and “in good taste.”
In any case, Kylie appreciated Marco’s gesture.
She said: “Sobrang na appreciate ko ‘yun with Marco. Even Jake said tama ang ginawa ni Marco and Jake was grateful. He was the one who told me that Marco called him up.”
The former beauty queen is happy that her boyfriend has no qualms about her doing the deed at least onscreen.
She maintained, “I always appreciate it that Jake supports my decisions in my career.”
