Much to the public's surprise, Kim Chiu uncomfortably confessed that her rumored boyfriend Xian Lim gets jealous of her ongoing tandem with Gerald Anderson.
In a brief interview with ABS-CBN News prior to leaving Manila for the ASAP in Toronto show, Kim honestly revealed that her ongoing working relationship with her ex-boyfriend of almost four years somehow affected her relationship with Xian.
"Tawanan na lang natin [iyong rumors]. Alam naman niya [Lim] na work lang iyon. Pero siyempre hindi maiiwasan," she shared.
But Kim was quick to emphasize, "Basta, work naman iyon eh."
For what it's worth, Kim underscored that the actor-performer would always have a special place in her heart.
Kim, likewise, shared that Xian is now okay with the fact that she and Gerald are working on their daytime soap Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin.
Xian already belied that persistent rumor during his recent appearance on Tonight With Boy Abunda.
"I get it if people will have that conclusion," Xian explained. "I mean I can't say that it's completely okay but it's part of it. It's easy kasi to get confused with the characters we portray in the teleseryes and the movies and in personal life."
Despite rumors of their split, Kim even came to Xian's second concert at The Theater at Solaire, where the latter asked her for a big hug.
