AJ Raval recently got super emotional as she recalled the recent controversies she was involved in. During a media conference for her new rom-com film Crush Kong Curly, AJ and her co-star Wilbert Ross were asked if there was a part of their life where they were judged and they wanted to defend themselves.
For context: In the Crush Kong Curly trailer, AJ's character says, "Respeto muna bago husga, ha? Ilagay mo muna yung sarili mo sa iba."
In response to the question, AJ said: "Yes, ako po. Na-judge po ako. Tingin ko po alam naman po 'yon ng karamihan dito. Alam niyo yung hindi ako nagsinungaling, nagsabi ako ng totoo, pero na-judge pa rin ako. Nag-try ako mag-explain pero wala pa rin makaintindi. Wait lang, naiiyak ako!" At that point, AJ paused mid-sentence because she was tearing up, took some tissues, and tried to compose herself.
PEP reports that during the press con, AJ also said she didn't want to talk about anything love life-related. "Ayoko munang pag-usapan po. Next question na lang po. Ayoko na pong magbitaw ng kahit anong salita tungkol sa love life or anything."
AJ and Aljur Abrenica became the subject of controversy when AJ confirmed that Aljur was courting her. People accused her of being the third party in Aljur's separation with Kylie Padilla, which both AJ and Kylie denied. Because of the third party accusations, AJ even went on a short social media break to take care of her mental health.
