It's not uncommon for single celebrities to get hounded by dating rumors. For instance, Barbie Imperial was linked to Daniel Padilla earlier this year after a netizen posted a photo of Barbie visiting Daniel's mother Karla Estrada and sister Magui Ford at their home.

Months after Daniel referred to the cheating speculations as "nonsense," Barbie herself has also broken her silence on the issue in her latest YouTube vlog. "Noong nangyari 'yung chismis na 'yun, siyempre nahiya ako ng una kay Kath kasi ano iisipin niya? Pero kasi ako po, pumunta ako ng bahay ni Tita Karla kasi first, kaibigan ko si Tita Karla and si Magui kaibigan ko rin," she said.

Barbie further explained that she only visited Karla to ask for advice regarding her recent breakup with Diego Loyzaga. "Noong pumunta ako doon, ka-ka-break lang namin actually ni Diego noon," Barbie shared. "Pumunta ako kay Tita Karla kasi wala si Mama dito and ayoko kasi na 'pag ka-ka-break ko lang, emotional ako, pupunta ako ng gimikan, iinom—hindi ganon. Lalapit ako sa parang mom talaga mag-advise."

In fact, Daniel wasn't even in the house when Barbie went there. "For fair 'yung advice, si Tita Karla kasi, kilala rin niya si Diego, parang anak-anakan rin niya 'yun. So pumunta ako doon na wala nga si DJ doon," Barbie added.

"Walang truth 'yun and nirerespect ko yung kung ano yung meron si Kath and DJ. And sa lahat naman ng couples, nirerespeto ko 'yun," she concluded.

Barbie also slammed other rumors linking her to actor Xian Lim. ICYDK, both of them were spotted at Hotel Rosario Mati last May, leading netizens to assume that the two were romantically involved. 


"May raket kami noon and siyempre isang hotel lang para madaling pumunta doon sa event mismo. So siguro if sasabihin mo nag-check in kami ng hotel, oo, naka-check in talaga kami ng isang hotel. But that doesn't mean na isang kwarto kami," Barbie clarified. She then quipped: "T'saka ang bobo naman namin, nagpa-picture talaga?"

Dating rumors aside, Barbie claims that she's happy to be single for now because she can focus on her work and family.
