Fans' Reactions

What a joke...are you serious...she is too busy to date anyone. but so happy to see my angel enveloped in dating rumors.

Son diligently practicing his football everyday in the UK. he is not allowed to date until he retires from football. He spoke about it in his documentary.

I mean let's be honest...when would they ever find time to share even a meal together? It would be the same to say he is dating every girl who is supporting him.
