Ivana Alawi Denies Rumor Linking Her To Bacolod City Mayor Albee Benitez

Ivana also clarified that she is in a relationship with a “respectable businessman”

Kapamilya actress Ivana Alawi has firmly denied any romantic involvement with Bacolod City Mayor Albee Benitez amid the rumor linking them.

In a Facebook post on February 10, Ivana addressed the allegations, stating, “I tried to stay quiet at dumedma na lang dahil sa paniniwala ko na hindi ako dapat magsalita lalo kapag alam ko na wala akong ginagawang masama.

“But because of the false accusations and hurtful words that are being thrown to my Mom and Mona, kinailangan ko nang linawin ang mga bagay.”

Ivana emphasized that she is not the girlfriend of Albee, asserting that this would be the “first and last time” she would address the rumor.

Hindi po ako ang nasasabing girlfriend ni Mayor Albee Benitez,” she said. “I met him when I had work in Bacolod. He was very accommodating and friendly. At hindi lang sya ang politikong nakilala ko at naging kaibigan.”

However, Ivana clarified that she is in a relationship with someone who brings her happiness.

“I am currently seeing someone who makes me happy. All I can say is that he is a respectable businessman and not a politician,” she said. “Sana this helps clear my name and clarify all rumors. Maraming salamat.”
