Richard Poon Reveals Ongoing Romance With Maricar Reyes

Currently the envy of many men is big band crooner Richard Poon who has proudly divulged being in a blissful romantic relationship with actress-model Maricar Reyes.

Poon made the big reveal himself in a recent interview on "KrisTV" detailing, though rather vaguely, the date they became "official."

"Just last July... I think July 1st," Poon stammered.

Upon prodding of show host Kris Aquino, the singer went on to say that he just might "seriously" consider marrying Reyes in the near future.

The singer promised to always try and make Reyes happy. "I'm a man myself. I have my own shortcomings and all, but I will try my best, everything that I can [do for her]," he said.

Poon and Reyes first met in 2009 while doing the music video for his single "You And I." At the time Reyes was embroiled in a big scandal relating to the release of several amateur sex videos that purportedly involved her and Hayden Kho Jr.

Poon, on the other hand, was then parrying malicious insinuations relating to his sexual orientation following his curious declaration on the now defunct talk show "Entertainment Live!" that he'd rather be linked to Sam Milby than to Valerie Concepcion.

A year later, Poon announced his intention of courting Reyes.

Asked what prompted him to reveal his pursuit of Reyes, Poon told PEP, "There's nothing to hide."

But he was non-committal when asked if Reyes approves of him publicizing his ardent pursuit of her.

"I think we've discussed it once or twice," he said. "Ako, I respect her for every decision she has. If she chooses to be silent, then, for me, if she's that important to me, I'd give her that space she needs. But if ever one day she shocks all of you by saying something about me, wow, I'll be the happiest man."

More than her good looks, Poon said he is drawn to Reyes' innate kindness. "She's a good person if you really get to know her," said he.
