Actor Xian Lim broke his silence regarding the rumors that he has broken up with actress Kim Chiu.
After the press conference for his July 15 concert “Songs in the Key of X” at The Theater at Solaire, Xian told reporters, “Well, rumors are rumors, di ba? Kung anuman siya, let it be.”
As for how he feels about the issue, he said, “I don’t really have anything to say kasi (we) don’t really entertain those kind of vibes. Walang patutunguhan ‘yung mga ganyang unwanted comments.”
Hence, to clear the issue, he was asked about their real relationship status to which he replied, “I don’t know. It’s still the same… ‘Yun pa rin.”
“Mahal mo pa rin siya the way na minahal mo siya dati?” one reporter asked.
“It’s still the same. Kung anuman ‘yung mga pinagsasasabi ng mga tao, then let it be. If that’s their belief then okay, that’s their belief,” Xian said.
Earlier during the press conference, while Kim is not a guest at his concert, Xian said that she will be watching from the audience.
When asked if this is an assurance that they have no problems with each other, he said, “Wala naman kasi talaga… We’re not that kind to be scandalous about anything. Wala kaming gano’n.”
Meanwhile, Xian also explained the reason behind his “goodbye” post on Instagram last month.

During the press conference, Xian clarified that he was not referring to his career and that it was actually about taking a hiatus from social media.
“Hindi siya showbiz. It’s more of social media. Meron kasi akong napanood lang na video na sabi from time to time, kailangan daw natin magbreak sa social media… Yes (social media detox)… Minsan kailangan nating maging alone lang sa thoughts natin dahil doon tayo mas nagiging creative, mas doon tayo nakakapag-isip. ‘Yung lang ‘yung story behind that,” he explained.
Later, Xian added that he was also busy at the time and had to meet a lot of deadlines. “Nagsink kasi ‘nung day na ‘yun when I said goodbye for now sa social media na there’s so many deadlines sa project. Mayroong pelikula. I was doing and still doing a film, concert then the album I just finished a couple of days ago. Tapos I also have an art exhibit ngayong July 16, the day after the concert. A couple of paintings tapos solo exhibition so sabi ko, sige, tigil muna ako dito then I’ll focus on the things I have to do then babalik ulit ako.”
Xian also returned to social media after a week.
