Local celebrities Qi Razali and Nelydia Senrose, who previously denied being a couple, have finally opened up.
Qi has admitted they were no longer just "close friends" and were now lovers, reported Sinar Harian.
Qi said he had wanted to take things slow as he did not want another failed relationship.
"At first, we were just friends, but I soon fell for Nelydia's maturity and sense of humour," said Qi, who previously dated popular Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Yuna.
He, however, stressed that they were not thinking about marriage yet as they both wanted to focus on their careers.
