Jolo Revilla is courting actress Melissa Ricks, the young actor’s mom, Lani Mercado, said. In her interview with “The Buzz,” Mercado also confirmed that her son brought Ricks to a recent family gathering.

“Siguro parang nililigawan pa. Kasama namin siya noong anniversary naming mag-asawa. We had dinner. Sinama siya ni Jolo,” Mercado, who is married to Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., said.

When asked if she approved of Ricks, Mercado said: “Any mother would love to have her as a girlfriend of her son.”

In a separate interview, meanwhile, Jolo was vague when asked to confirm the reports. He did not deny though that he sent her food during one the young actress’s tapings.

Jolo said: “In love , maybe. Basta masasabi ko masaya ako ngayon.” -ABS-CBNnews
