On Tonight With Boy Abunda, Xian Lim explains why he and Kim Chiu confirmed their relationship only recently, after years of public speculation. “Ayaw naming umamin habang magkatrabaho kami. I don’t want people thinking, e kasi gusto lang nilang i-promote ang team-up nila e. Years later, we’re still together and we’re not promoting anything.”
He adds, “We love each other, sobra-sobra. It feels good to be able to say this now after so many years [of saying] we’re okay, alam niyo na ‘yon.”
Kim first confirmed their relationship on the same show in November last year, when Boy Abunda asked her point-blank, “Bakit nahihirapan kayong tanggapin na kayo?”
He apologizes to Kim for this during his interview with Xian. “I felt guilty because I should not have asked Kim. Alam mo, after the interview, I felt so bad because in a way, I have a different relationship with you [than with Kim]… Had it been you, I would’ve called and said sorry.”
