According to Mario Maurer's publicist in the Philippines named Joyce Ramirez, the Thai actor, Mario Maurer was advised to keep a friendly distance from Kakai Bautista to avoid any rumors from spreading.
Ramirez even told PEP PH that "Based from my last meeting with the agents of Mario Maurer in Bangkok, they have advised Mario since the year 2013 to keep a friendly distance to avoid rumors of a romantic affair with the comedian... The Thai reps also kept records of news clips tracked in the Philippines and have consulted with their local partners on how to best manage the negative impact (of the false rumor) on the reputation of the actor."
Ramirez even added that "The story [Kakai] has created only in her mind is false, malicious, and delusional."
The comedian, Kakai reacted to the said issue through her Facebook account saying that "Apat na taon na po akong nananahimik never ko pong naipagtanggol ang sarili ko sa lahat lahat po ng panglalait na natanggap ko. Hindi ko po alam kung ano po bang nagawa ko sa kanila bakit ganun nalang ang galit nila sa akin. Pero, sige kung ito lang po ang makakapagpasaya sa kanila, Ibibigay ko na po. God Bless you all."
