Seems that Paulo Avelino was a no-show for his son Aki's seventh birthday party.
Aki's mother, actress LJ Reyes, threw the little man an awesome Batman-themed birthday celebration last Sunday, July 23. Unfortunately, his father was not there to enjoy his son's epic costume, nor the three-tier 3D Batman cake.
Speaking to PEP about her former partner's absence, LJ said without directly addressing whether or not she invited him to the gathering, "Lahat ng nagmamahal kay Aki, nandito. Lahat ng malapit sa puso ni Aki, nandito."
However, in a separate interview with PEP published today, July 25, Paulo clarified that he didn't receive an invitation for the party.
He said, "Hindi ako invited. Hindi ako invited, 'yun lang."
Aki was born in 2010, and his parents split up in 2013. LJ is now in a relationship with actor Paolo Contis, while Paulo is dating Filipino-Australian stunner Jodie Elizabeth Tarasek.
