Dion said that she was concerned that Munoz would have trouble handling the sudden attention.
“It was probably overwhelming for him at the beginning when we started working together because we were dancing together,” she told Wootton. “We bonded right away as friends, we had a good time. It evolved. But when people started to take pictures and it was like, ‘Who’s that guy? René?’ … Let’s not mix everything.”
But Dion added that she’s okay with people thinking that Munoz is her boyfriend.
“We’re friends, we’re best friends,” she explained. “Of course we hug and hold hands and go out, so people see that. I mean, he’s a gentleman. He’s giving me his hand to go out,” she said. “I don’t mind because he’s handsome and he’s my best friend.”
