Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. has denied that he bought a house for former leading lady Jennylyn Mercado.
"Sa totoo lang hindi ko na siya nakikita. Huwag ‘yong tira ng tira dahil nakakasira kayo ng buhay ng may buhay," Revilla told “SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon.”
In a previous interview, Mercado already said there was no truth to that rumor, adding that she saw no reason for the senator to give her a house.
The controversial house is said to be located in Quezon City. Rumors said Revilla bought a house for Mercado, a single mother, after their movie “Resiklo” in 2007.
According to Mercado’s manager, Becky Aguila, the house is a rent-to-own type and the actress is the one paying the rent.
