Fans of the real-life couple Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli were in for a bit of disappointment, as the young singer skipped the Star Magic Ball 2017 on September 30 because of a previous engagement.
Actor-model Matteo walked the red carpet in Makati Shangri-la alone, looking dapper in his white suit, but with no Sarah in his arms. However, fans of the couple should’ve seen it coming.
In an interview with PUSH, Matteo affirmed that his pop star girlfriend would not be attending the glitzy annual event of ABS-CBN.
“I am going solo. Wala she has prior commitments and maybe in the future we’ll see.” Then he quipped, “Maybe next, next, next ball.”
Don’t worry though. The triathlete killed the runway with his Joseph Aloysius-designed suit. Aside from being stylish, the white ensemble was made from environment-friendly materials.
“The suit I’m wearing is made of Filipino fabric kumbaga it’s from a tribe in Ilocos if I’m not mistaken and it’s very interesting because it’s an eco suit kumbaga. It’s made by Joseph Aloysius, he’s my buddy and I know it was his advocacy.”
“Sabi ko, ‘Bro, let’s put something together para different’ and he told me about his advocacy. It’s very interesting. He uses tribes from around the Philippines to make his fabrics,”
Matteo shared wit PUSH.
Speculations abound that Sarah was not allowed to go to the bash, just like Cinderella. But for the sole reason that she is not a Star Magic talent, unlike her beau. Network executives were also wary that the couple, fondly called AshMatt, might overshadow other Star Magic love teams, such as KathNiel (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) and LizQuen (Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil), among others.
Rumor has it that this was also why the JaDine tandem were conspicuously absent from the event since they are both signed as Viva Artists.
