Nadech Kugimiya denies secretly dating model; Assures she’s just a friend
“Nadech Kugimiya” maintains he’s not courting model “Kimberley.” She is only a friend that he once worked with, and has known for over a year now. There is nothing beyond friendship. He admits that this news had an impact and affected his NY fanclub, but he has explained to them already. He disputes exchanging rings with Yaya. The status of their relationship is still the same. As for if there will be development in the future, let’s wait and see.
He once came out and claimed that he doesn’t want to play on social network because he doesn’t any problems. However, recently there are pictures between leading actor “Nadech Kugimiya” and half caste model “Kimberley Veitch” where they are conversing in a teasing manner, making the majority of people misunderstand. Having the chance to see Nadech at the “23rd Annual Suppanahong Award” he explains the situation. He also maintains that this girl is just a friend he’s known for a long time now, and definitely not courting.
Let’s ask about the news with the model, the girl named Kimberley, what’s the deal?
It’s nothing. She’s a friend I’ve known for over a year now, because we worked together. We haven’t talked continuously. I talk to her in a manner like another one of my overseas friends.
Does it confuse you that the news is implying between you and Kimberley is boyfriend and girlfriend?
I think that people may interpret it in many different ways, I can’t forbid from forming their own thoughts on this. But based on our comments, there’s nothing going beyond that.
But there was a comment like she references wanting to pinch your dimples, does that not look like flirting?
Friends can talk like that too. There is nothing wrong with that. Honestly, it’s nothing.
Have you spoken about this news yet? (not sure who they’re referring to? Yaya? or Kimberley?)
She asked about it too, but I assured her I’m definitely not courting her.
Are you trying to lead her into the industry?
She’s already a model. She’s in many countries.
But it looks like you are playing IG and it looks really suspicious as to why you had to go secretly talk to her
Honestly, I do have IG but I don’t use it or post pictures like other people do. I have it so that I can go look at my own pictures, pictures of my mom and also my friends. Sometimes I might go and comment on my friends’ IG, and tease each other back and forth. But it doesn’t mean that I have to go off and tell everyone I have IG, because I don’t post pictures anyhow.
Is it because you want it to be private?
Right now I’ve already signed up for a new IG account. I change IGs rather often. Some members of my fanclub are aware that this is my IG, but they don’t say anything.
Did you sign up an IG account just so that you can talk only to the people you want to talk to?
That’s true too. Even though I’ve set it up to be private, but if there’s people who know it’s me, sees the comments. So in that case, it’s not really 100% private.
As soon as you made news with this junior model looks like it caused quite a stir and impacted your Nadech-Yaya fanclub
If asked if there was an impact, yes there was an impact. But I tell the fanclub it’s nothing.
Has Yaya asked about this news?
She would ask, what’s going on? Can you give some explanation so I can hear you out as to what is going on? Why do I not know anything about this? So I explained to her that it’s nothing. She didn’t ask because she’s worried, but because she wants to know. Nong needs to know some of the details because there’s bound to be people asking her about it too, so she has to prepare herself to answer those questions.
So really did you tell Yaya first, or Yaya had to come ask you first?
I’m better off to clear myself first (laughs).
How about your relationship with Yaya, we saw in the news it said you exchange rings with her?
No that’s not true. That ring you saw is hers. I didn’t help pick it out either. My relationship status with Yaya is still the same as it was before. Whatever it used to be like, it still remains that way. Asked if there’s more to it than before, let’s wait one more time.
Does that junior model know that you’re koo-jin (fantasy couple) with Yaya?
I think she would be well aware as it is because she lives in Thailand. Also another thing, my pictures with Yaya in advertisements are all over the country. When it’s that much, she would probably know already.
Personally do you like models or leading actresses?
I can like anything as long as she’s a good person, that’s good enough.
Will this news force you to be more careful when commenting at other IGs?
Not at all. I will probably continue to annoy the general public like my usual self instead. I’m not closing myself and restricting myself from living my life this private way. Honestly Pa’Jaew has told me to play on IG if it already is a part of my private life. But I’m probably not considering making it public though. Go follow my mom’s IG instead. I’m not one to like taking that many pictures of myself.
