During the weekend, former co-stars Paolo Contis and Yen Santos made it to the headlines once again when they posted photos on their respective IG stories of them at what looked like an identical location.
Netizens briefly spiraled, thinking of a possible dinner date that happened between the two, especially since Yen was also celebrating her birthday.
In a text exchange with a Pep.ph reporter, Paolo neither confirmed nor denied anything about the rumors. “Wapakels!,” he says when told that he’s again the subject of numerous bashing online.
He was asked about the controversial dinner, but the I Left My Heart in Sorsogon actor kept mum and only replied with a laughing emoji.
His take on bashers? “Ang lilinis nila!”, proceeding to say that he doesn’t read comments on Instagram anymore.
"Kung ma-bash ka dahil sa acting ko, 'di ba? Kasi, artista ako, e. Naniniwala ako na we should be judged by our profession," he said in a media conference of his show, in which he co-stars with Heart Evangelista and Richard Yap.
Rumors between Yen and Paolo first started after being spotted publicly together in Baguio last September, following Paolo’s publicized breakup with LJ Reyes. Paolo then denied third-party accusations directed at Yen, stating that she went with him to Baguio as a friend. Neither Paolo nor Yen has given an update on their relationship since then.
