Paulo Avelino Confirms Breakup With LJ Reyes Is A Mutual DecisionActor Paulo Avelino has always tried to avoid answering questions about the status of his relationship with LJ Reyes, the mother of his son. But since he's doing a teleserye that highlights the importance of being honest, the actor had to finally give the answer many have been waiting for.
He confirmed that he and LJ have been living apart for a while, and that their only relationship centered on their son. "Single and complicated" was how Paulo described his civil status.
He admitted to being aloof before when it comes to answering personal questions. It is because he is also protecting some people in his life, and he also wants to keep some things in his life private.
Breaking things off was a mutual decision, Paulo said, adding that he is not closing his doors to love. If it one day comes knocking again, then he won't shy away from it.
Asked if he always sees his son, the actor maintained he makes it a point to spend as much time with him as possible. He refused to answer though when prodded about how many times he sees him.
Meanwhile, Paulo laughed off rumors that he committed suicide before. When the news reached him, he was actually sleeping in his home. He has been working nonstop since Holy Week, he said, so he was surprised some are saying his depression was caused by the lack of projects coming his way.
The actor isn't affected by these things, however. "I won’t be affected by something that is not true. E, di ba, sa social media, they keep on killing people?"
Paulo also clarified the issue that he rejected the chance to work with Angel Locsin in a teleserye. He was going through some things when the opportunity arises. He added that the role was not offered to him, but he was just considered for it.
The teleserye, titled "The Legal Wife," will push through starring Angel, Jericho Rosales and JC de Vera.
"Well, siguro normal naman iyon sa tao na nalulungkot, sumasaya. I would call it something… siguro normal na napagdadaanan ng tao."
Paulo said he just needs some time to heal the wounds and move on from the relationship with LJ.
