Fans of Maine Mendoza can stop speculating now about her relationship with Arjo Atayde. The latter just confirmed that they’re exclusively dating. Looks like he didn’t need that sketchy toy lie detector to expose him on live TV after all.
The admission happened during an ambush interview at the press con of his new film, Tol. “We’re exclusively dating, I’m at my happiest right now,” Arjo told reporters. He didn’t elaborate further on their relationship.
In the past, Maine denied that she’s dating the actor, saying that they’re only “going out as friends.” AlDub fans have been divided on this for a while now. But since Arjo finally confirmed their status, supporters are posting messages for the actor to take care of their idol. (Disclaimer: We don’t know if some of them are mad or just concerned.)
Dear Arjo Atayde, please read my letter to you. Please be careful with Maine Mendoza's heart. I can feel you have her heart now. Also, pls dont challenge the fans. There are fans who have mental problems & might hurt you & Maine. Guard yourselves! God bless u & Maine! Chill lang! pic.twitter.com/9szQ2m3U8d

It's rare to find someone in the industry who's fearless enough to fight for what he feels especially because Maine is a bankable star. Arjo is willing to go through it all for Maine. Atta boy!! Finally a guy with balls! 👏
