Rumor mills are whirling with the story that William Levy and his co-star in Univision's upcoming telenovela "La Tempestad" Ximena Navarrete are dating. But in the recent issue of People en Español, the co-stars addressed rumors of a relationship and outright denied any romantic involvement. They admit to their steamy chemistry on-screen, but insist that it doesn't have any reflection on real life.
"I cannot even say hello to anyone because they [the media] will say we are going out, " said William Levy to the magazine, which previously published photographs of him with Ximena Navarrete dining out in a restaurant in Veracruz.
"We get along very well," said Navarrete of her professional relationship with her co-star. She goes on to explain that she is more focused on her career.
True or false, here are four things you should know about their alleged relationship:
1. Ximena Navarrete is fresh off a break-up. She told the magazine that she is single after breaking up with her ex-boyfriend, Puerto Rican TV host Jaime Mayol.
"Everything happens for a reason, we were together for three years," said the actress. "I'm fine, it not nice to deal with something like this. I'm single, at peace and focused on my work."
2. Mexican showbiz newspaper Basta! reported that insiders on the set of the show report seeing affectionate body language between the two that is not scripted and that they openly share knowing glances.
3. William Levy has two children with actress Elizabeth Gutiérrez and is reportedly still engaged to her. But the proposal took place three years ago and a wedding is yet to happen.
4. Photos of William Levy and Ximena Navarrete dining out have been published, which have added fuel to the rumor-fire.
