Kim Chiu makes a tearful plea for fans to be more understanding at the 'Till My Heartaches End' press conference.
At the October 12 presscon for their upcoming movie Till My Heartaches End, both Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu could not contain their emotions when it came to answering questions about their personal life. Gerald is rumored to already be dating Bea Alonzo while Kim is supposedly being courted by Jason Abalos and Enchong Dee. This sparked rumors that the movie might turn out to be their last project together as a love team.
During the presscon, when asked if he had ever asked Kim how much she loved him (just like what he does in one of their most dramatic scenes from their movie), Gerald broke down and suddenly apologized to a surprised Kim for doing most of the hurting in what they called their "special relationship." A visibly upset Gerald then walked off backstage after answering one of the questions and was not able to participate in the rest of the press con due to hyperventilation. Kim was then asked by the press to give her reaction to Gerald'rsquo;s impromptu public apology and confession to her. The pretty chinita, who was trying hard to keep her voice steady, implored fans to be more forgiving of Gerald. The actor earlier admitted that ever since he got linked to Bea, he and his family had been receiving hate mail from diehard fans of their Kimerald love team. "Gusto ko sabihin sa lahat ng tao na, na sana maging okay ang lahat. Ayoko na may naririnig ako na papatayin si Bea, tatapunan ng asido, papatayin si Gerald. Ayoko yung ganun eh. Tanggapin na lang natin kung ano man yung nangyari. And sana maging masaya tayo para sa kung ano man ang nangyari na yun. Sana tanggapin nila, maintindihan nila na may personal din kami na buhay," she said.
As she tried to wipe away her tears, Kim tried her best to explain to their fans that she is also very honored and thankful for the support they have been giving her through this difficult time in her life. "Yung mga fans, alam kong nasasaktan sila para sa akin and nahahati nga sila. Yun nga yung kinakalungkot ni Gerald ngayon na bakit nahahati sila ng dahil sa kanya. Hindi ko sila masisisi kung ganun yung opinion nila. Parang, siyempre nagpapasalamat ako dahil naka-suporta sila sa akin and inaalalayan nila ako sa bawat pinagdadaanan ko at pinagdadaanan namin," she shared. Kim'rsquo;s voice kept cracking but she still maintained her composure by telling her fans that at this point, all she wants is for things to just smooth over and that all she wants is for everyone to just accept and understand the changes that are happening between her and Gerald. "Heto lang ang gusto ko, sana balang araw maging okay ulit. Bumalik ulit yung dati. And tama na yung gulo. Tama na yung hindi pagkakaintindihan, lalo na kung hindi na maganda. And salamat dahil nandiyan sila para sa akin para alalayan ako. Eto lang ang gusto kong sabihin, salamat and sana maging okay ang lahat. And sabi ko nga sa The Buzz, yung mga taong nagsasabi ng masama tungkol kay Gerald, minsan ako yung nasasaktan para sa kanya. Kaso tao rin lang naman siya na nagkakamali. Sana intindihin na lang namin yun. Tanggapin natin kung ano yun," she said.
