Paulo Avelino on ex-girlfriend LJ Reyes, suicide rumors-A A +A
Friday, October 25, 2013
ACTOR Paulo Avelino finally speaks up on his breakup with actress LJ Reyes and said that it was a mutual decision.
The Kapamilya actor faced the entertainment press on Thursday at the "Honesto" press conference at the ELJ Building at ABS-CBN Compound in Quezon City.
Paulo said he's been aloof in answering questions about his relationship with LJ because he wants to keep his personal life away from the public.
When asked about his status, he replied: "Single and complicated".
The actor revealed they parted ways for some time now and they agreed to focus on their son, Ethan Akio.
"Ayoko kong magbigay ng specific date pero medyo (matagal na kaming hiwalay). Sinisiguro ko na may oras ako sa bata. Kung wala akong ginagawa, I try as much as possible to spend it with my son," he said.
LJ, a GMA-7 talent, gave birth in the United States on July 24, 2010. Since then, the ex-couple are tight-lipped on their personal affairs.
Paulo said the breakup was a mutual decision and he's moving on.
Meanwhile, some linked his alleged suicidal attempts on his split with LJ but the actor said there's no truth to the suicide issue.
"It's not true. First of all I'm here. Nagulat din ako kasi. Actually nagising na lang ako na may tumatawag sa akin (na nagbalita) and sabi ko na 'andito lang ako, natutulog," the actor said.
When asked if he indeed went through depression stage after the breakup, Paulo said he wouldn't call it that way: "Normal lang naman sa tao na nalulungkot, sumasaya. I won't call it depression, normal lang siguro talaga yun na pinagdadanan ng tao."
"Sabi nila time heals, oras lang talaga. Oras to think about things."
Paulo believes he will fall in love again when the right woman comes. "Magmahal ulit? Ako, I wouldn't rush it pero kung ibibigay, may darating at mararamdaman ko (siguro)." (Sunnex)
