AFTER keeping his silence, actor Aljur Abrenica posted a statement on his official Facebook page about his separation with ex-wife Kylie Padilla.
The couple’s split was earlier confirmed by the actress’ father, Robin Padilla, in July exclusively on Ogie Diaz’s vlog revealing Abrenica had an affair.
Padilla noted on Twitter that they had officially separated in April and that they both agreed to date other people.
In the post, the actor noted that he and Padilla had an agreement to keep their silence.
Abrenica wrote, “Kylie, please tell them the truth. Don’t hide and disguise your comments, statements for your self gain. Tell them who cheated first. Tell them who wrecked our family. Tell them why I gave up on you, not on our family. The people deserve to know. I have no hate for them despite all the attacks and accusations they have towards me.”
Abrenica added that he appreciates the public’s reaction in support of their family.
“I am sorry for asking these questions and for breaking our agreement of not speaking to the public. When your dad (Robin) opened to the public [on] his one-sided story, I maintained my silence because of our agreement.”
He said that reading the accusations and Padilla’s statements, “it breaks [his] heart that [she] can sit still despite the truth.”
“Tell them who cheated first. Tell them who you are with right now. Have the courage to settle this. Tell your dad the truth. If not for them, do it for our children. After so many years will you allow our children [to] believe this story that you and dad left for me? At first it was fair for me to take all the blame. Is it also fine with you guys to let the innocent be attacked with false accusations?” Abrenica ended.
As of this writing, the Facebook post has 144,000 reactions, 92,000 comments, and 89,000 shares.
The ex-couple started dating in 2011 until they broke up in 2014. They got back together in 2016 and got engaged in 2017. That same year, they had a son named Alas. Abrenica and Padilla got married in 2018 and had another son named Axl in 2019.
In October, sexy film actress AJ Raval confirmed that Abrenica is courting her and that they are getting to know each other.
In a Facebook post last Friday, the Viva actress emphasized that she was not the third party behind the separation.Internet Explorer Channel Network
