Paolo Contis Owns Up To Third Party Issue: ‘Naging Marupok Ako’by Jocelyn Valle .
Exactly a week after Paolo Contis's now-former partner LJ Reyes gave a tell-all interview about their breakup last September 1, 2021 (read here), the actor issued a statement on his Instagram account.
Paolo used a black image for his two-part post, which is replete with explanation and apologies. He admits in the caption, "After lumabas ang interview ni LJ, katakot takot na pang aalipusta at pambabatikos ang natanggap ko."
He adds, "I can’t say I don’t deserve it kaya tinatanggap ko lang ito. I understand all your frustrations. Gusto ko sana manahimik kaya lang marami nang mga nadadamay na hindi dapat kaya mas mabuti sigurong sagutin ko ang ilan sa mga ito."
Paolo answers the issues
Paolo then goes on answering the accusations and speculations concerning the reason behind his breakup with LJ.
On using drugs: "Merong nagsasabi na meron siyang reliable source that I take drugs and as a result, sinasaktan ko si LJ at ang mga bata. This is NOT true. Minahal at inalagaan ko sila. I never laid a finger on them."
On having a third party: "Aaminin ko, naging marupok at gago ako sa ilang taon naming pagsasama. I’m not proud of it. For that, I’m sincerely sorry. I’m truly ashamed of my actions.
On implicating Yen Santos, his leading lady in the movie A Faraway Land: "She was never the reason of our break up. I was. Kung matagal na kaming hindi okay ni LJ, it was mainly because of me. Masyado niyo siyang diniin sa issue na to. Pati pag promote namin ng movie nabahiran na ng kung anu ano.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
On confirming his trip to Baguio: "When LJ left for the States with the kids, I went to Baguio for 3 days dahil ayaw ko sa Manila at gusto kong makapag isip isip. Naging insensitive ako about the possible effects nung issue and I invited Yen for a day para may makausap since malapit lang siya sa North din.
"She went there as a friend. Hindi ko naisip na madadamay siya ng ganito. I’m sorry for this."
On defending his talent manager Lolit Solis: "Please stop bashing her. Nanay ko si Lolit. Natural lang na ipagtanggol niya ako kahit mali ako. May nanay din kayo diba? Hindi niyo alam ang mga pagalit at pangaral niya sa akin pag kami lang ang naguusap.
"Sinabihan ko na siya to stop protecting me. Ang sinabi lang niya ay HINDI, ANAK KITA! HAYAAN MO AKO! For that, I’m sorry Nay. And thank you! Sa inyo pareho ni Nay Cristy." He's referring to entertainment columnist Cristy Fermin.
Paolo apologizes to LJ, Summer, Aki, Lian
Paolo also addresses concerns about his and LJ's daughter Summer, 2, as well as LJ's son Aki, 11. LJ brought the kids with her when she flew to New York to join her family.
Paolo says, "I was very clear to LJ when I told her I want to see and take care of Summer kahit hindi kami okay. But I understand and respect her decision to go to the States muna.
"Sana balang araw makapag usap kami ng maayos para sa bata. Madami pang kailangan pag usapan pero sa amin na lang ni LJ yun at sana respetuhin niyo yun."CONTINUE READING BELOWwatch now
Paolo extends his apologies to his ex-wife Lian Paz, with whom he has two kids. He says, "I’m sorry sa lahat ng nadamay sa issue na to. I want to apologize to Lian and the kids, na nagulo na naman ang tahimik na buhay dahil sa akin."
He's also apologetic to his mother, telling her not worry about him too much, and likewise to his management team "na hindi na nakakatulog dahil sa akin."
Paolo leaves a message for Summer, saying "I’m sorry my Ganda. I love and miss you so much. Papa will do his best to be better. I will always be here for you. I promise."
Also for Aki, telling him, "I wish I could’ve done things differently and listened to you more. I’m sorry I failed you."
And finally for LJ: "I’m very sorry. For everything. Sa lahat lahat."
Paolo ends his statement with this promise: "I will work on making myself a better person and learning from this." And with a request: "But for now, please respect our privacy and pray for us. Ngayon kung hindi pa po kayo pagod, please direct all your hate and bashings at me. No one else deserves it, ako lang. Thank you."
