LJ Reyes OK With Paulo Avelino Dating KC ConcepcionLJ Reyes says that if Paulo Avelino and KC Concepcion are really dating, she has nothing against it.
The admission came from Reyes in an recent interview with Ricky Lo in the program Startalk TX.
Reyes said theirs is nothing wrong if Avelino, her former boyfriend who she has a son with, and Concepcion are going out.
She said, “wala naman pong masama dun, kung saan naman po sila happy, magiging happy rin po ako.”
According to her, she and Avelino have not talked about dating other people. What they talk about is their son Aki, she said.
Asked whether she would now be dating other people too, Reyes said that she feels this is still not the right time.
Reyes said that she would go out if it is with friends but won’t if it is a serious date.
This is despite the actress admitting in another part of the interview that she and Avelino have split for a long time now.
Asked whether it has already been a year since their separation, Reyes said that it has not been but it has been a long time since their decision to break up.
“Medyo matagal [na], pero hindi pa naman po [isang taon],” Reyes told Lo.
What is more important for Reyes at the moment, it appears, is her son.
“Anak ko po muna,” she said, talking about her priority.
And Reyes has done a lot for Aki.
Lo asked her about a recent encounter with members of the media where she got emotional. This was when Reyes enumerated some of the trials she went through for her son and why she got emotional during the said encounter.
Reyes said that she was really holding her feelings back. This reaction was triggered when she was asked, “Uy, buti okay lang sa 'yo na yung mga libreng oras lang ang 'binibigay sa anak mo?”
According to her, she got hurt by this question. “Nasaktan po ako for Aki,” she said.
She that at the time she was asked this, she remembered “lahat-lahat ng pinagdaanan ko para dun sa bata.”
She recounted how she gave birth in the U.S., alone, since Avelino was not granted a visa to be with her.
She also related how she wants to finish school but put that on hold because she needs to put her son first above everything else.
According to her, the question came off as like telling her these things she has done for Aki are not enough. She said she does not want Aki to feel anything like that.
Nonetheless, she asked for people to understand if she really could not hold back her feelings. She said she has been transparent to the best of her ability but now she is trying to be safe because she has her son to think about.
“Tina-try ko po na yung bawat sagot ko, na kahit po in the future e mapanood ni Aki, hindi siya masasaktan. Hindi na po baleng ako na lang ang masaktan, huwag lang po si Aki,” she said.
