“Shinare ko lang ‘yun dala ng emosyon, kasi I’m hurting.”
This is what AJ Raval explained on TikTok after she shared Aljur Abrenica's statement urging his ex-wife Kylie Padilla to tell the truth about their separation to the public.
AJ is currently dating the actor, and confirmed earlier this month that he's courting her.

The 21-year-old actress then defended herself from harsh accusations of people since her family is already being dragged into the issue.
"Tungkol ‘to sa statement ni AJ (Aljur) na shinare ko. Gusto ko lang i-explain kung bakit ko shinare. Hindi naman sa nakisawsaw ako sa issue nila. Shinare ko ‘yun kasi I’m trying to protect myself and my family also," she said.
“People are accusing me sa isang bagay na hindi ko naman ginagawa. Tinatawag nila akong ‘kabit,;’ tinatawag nila akong ‘homewrecker,’ which is hindi naman totoo. Wala akong sinirang pamilya, never akong maninira ng pamilya.”
AJ said she tried to accept all the hate being thrown at her, but she wouldn't let it pass now that her family is getting involved.
“Pati family ko nadadamay na, ‘yung parents ko. Well noong una, tinatanggap ko pa ‘yung mga sinasabi sa akin ng mga tao. Pero ngayon na nadadamay na family ko, sobrang affected ako. ‘Yung nanay ko, nakikita kong umiiyak. Naapektuhan ako dun,” she said.
On the issue of Aljur and Kylie, AJ said she already heard of it back then. "Well, to be honest, wala talaga akong pakialam sa issue nila before. Narinig ko na ‘yun but never ako naglabas ng kahit anong statement du’n, kasi wala talaga akong right magsalita tungkol sa issue na ‘yun. Sila lang dalawa ang puwede magsalita doon.”

AJ then took the chance to apologize to Kylie saying it's not her intention to hurt her.
“I’m really sorry sa lahat ng mga naapektuhan. Sa mga nagalit, I’m really sorry. And also kay Kylie, I’m sorry kung shinare ko ‘yung statement na ‘yun. It’s not my intention to hurt anybody. I was just trying to protect myself,” she explained.
“Iyon nga lang, mali ‘yung way ko. Pero na-realize ko rin na baka tama kayo, I’m too immature and I need to grow. I’m really sorry sa lahat ng naapektuhan at sa lahat po ng nagalit. Pasensya na po at sana mapatawad niyo ako.”
The actress ended her video thanking the people supporting her, and how much she appreciates those who have been sending her messages.
AJ also said that she will take a social media break in the meantime to protect her mental health.
As of writing, AJ has wiped out all of her Instagram posts and TikTok videos, leaving only her statement video public.
