Black Eyed Peas member Apl.de.Ap admitted that he was once attracted to Filipina actress KC Concepcion. Back in 2011, there were even rumors that he attempted to court her since he reportedly gave her flowers and a Tiffany necklace. But he stopped texting her as soon as he learned that KC had a boyfriend at that time. Now that he’s back in Manila as one of the coaches for The Voice of The Philippines, he was once again plagued with questions about his admiration for the actress-host.
While he admitted that they once had coffee together, Apl maintained that it was more of a friendly date and it never prospered on a romantic level. “Yeah we had a dinner date with friends and stuff. She's busy. I got busy. The timing didn’t just connect at that moment,” Apl stated in an interview right after the press con of The Voice of The Philippines, Friday, April 12.
Although they barely kept in touch since then, Apl said that it would be nice to catch up with KC one of these days. “Well, I went on tour and she got really busy so I focused on the tour and my career. You never know what’s going to happen. But at least I got to know her a bit and we’re still friends. I’d love to hang out with her. But I heard she has a boyfriend right?” Apl seemed a bit surprised though when the entertainment informed him that KC actually parted ways with her French suitor.
Apl further shared what attracted him to KC in the past. “At first, it was a physical attraction and then I got to know her. She’s cool to hang out with. I thought she was going to be reserved, but she’s actually open-minded and really talented and very pretty.”
At the end of the interview, Apl agreed to give a message for KC, “What's up, KC. I guess, sorry to hear what happened with your relationship. But enjoy yourself and, you know, it's time to be single and have a good time and hang out with Apl.”
