Kylie Padilla has never spoken against her estranged husband Aljur Abrenica, and has maintained that she does not want to reveal details about their separation to the public. Now, Aljur is dating actress AJ Raval, and Kylie says she only wants what's best for him.
Kylie Padilla on wanting Aljur Abrenica to be happy
When PEP asked about her reaction to Aljur's dating news during a promo interview for her new GL series BetCin, Kylie said: "Alam niyo, gusto ko lang maging masaya siya sa buhay niya. Kasi, siya pa rin ang tatay ng mga anak ko. Kahati ko siya sa pagpapalaki sa kanila. And kung nararamdaman ng mga anak ko na hindi masaya yung tatay nila, aba, hindi ko gusto 'yon. Gusto ko maramdaman nila na happy yung tatay nila."
"Kasi failure namin as parents yung nangyari, so kailangan na namin bumawi in some other way. Kailangan naming masaya in our own separate ways. Para makita nila buo pa rin sila, 'kasi happy yung parents ko,' ganun pa rin sila. Gusto ko ganun sila mag-isip," she shared. Kylie and Aljur are now co-parenting their two children, Alas Joaquin and Axl Romeo.
In the interview, Kylie also said she is not dating anyone at the moment.
Earlier this month, Kylie already addressed then-rumors that Aljur is dating another celebrity. She wrote on Twitter: "Guys there is no issue. We separated April pa and we have already mutually agreed to date other people. Please stop dragging other parties into this. I have no intention of disclosing anymore of what happened because I want to cherish the littlest ounce of privacy I have left."
In February, Kylie's cryptic Instagram posts sparked breakup rumors, and in July, Kylie's father Robin Padilla revealed that Aljur and Kylie split up, that Kylie was the one who broke up with Aljur, and that Aljur was unfaithful to his daughter. He mentioned that the two were on good terms and even celebrated Father's Day with the entire family.
Kylie announced their separation soon after this, and part of it reads: "In the past few months, our family has gone through the process of recovering, healing, and moving on. All we need right now is respect—first and foremost on the decisions we have made as a family, and respect for each and every member of our family—to Aljur who is the father of my two wonderful boys, most especially to Alas and Axl who are at this point very fragile, and also to our families from both sides who have guided us along the way."
