Paulo Avelino has finally spoken out about his son Aki's close relationship with Paolo Contis, his ex-girlfriend LJ Reyes' current flame.
In an interview with PEP, the 29 year-old actor shrugged off the rumors that he's "jealous" of Paolo, saying, "Kumbaga, may mga oras din naman para makasama ko 'yung anak ko. Hindi ko rin naman masabi kung anong mga nangyayari sa mga side nila.”
He added, “Alam naman ng bata na ako 'yung tatay niya."
"At the end of the day, gusto ko masaya 'yung bata.”
Allegations that there's friction between Aki's two father figures emerged not long after his Batman-themed seventh birthday bash which Paulo said he was not invited to.

Paulo and LJ had Aki in 2010, three years before they officially split up. Paulo is now dating Filipino-Aussie model Jodie Elizabeth Tarasek, who is seven years his junior.
