Los Angeles-based model BB Gandanghari has something to say in light of the recent controversy surrounding her niece Kylie Padilla’s split from actor Aljur Abrenica.
On her Instagram live last October 21, a netizen asked to know BB’s take on Kylie and Aljur’s widely known split.
"Siyempre alam ko naman na nagkaroon ng problema ang marriage nila,” BB responded, aware of the breakup. “Nagkahiwalay sila. Pero that's all I know. Ayaw ko ring pag-usapan 'yung tsismis. So hindi ko alam. Matagal na 'yun.”
But when a follower chimed in about Aljur’s cheating allegations towards Kylie, BB was surprised, not having a clue on what recently transpired on social media.
"No way?! He did?!" she reacted.
"I don't know that. That, hindi na ako pwede makialam. Hindi ko na alam iyan. This is the first time na narinig ko 'yan. So I don't know. Hindi naman ako nagtatanong," BB clarified.
Having separated from wife Carmina Villaroel when she was still Rustom Padilla, BB went on to share a piece of advice to Kylie and Aljur.
"Pero eto lang ang sa akin. Ang paghihiwalay, galing tayo diyan 'di ba? Ang paghihiwalay is not a joke,” she asserted.
Advising the estranged couple to keep their issues private, BB said, “It's not a career move or something para mapag-usapan ka. Masakit 'yan. So what I can advise to these two, being younger that you are, try to keep your dirty linens in the washroom. I'm sure you know what I mean.”
“Mahirap makialam. Pero 'yun lang, Try to keep things in private as much as possible kasi may mga anak kayo, unang-una. So, 'yun lang masasabi ko. That's a very touchy subject. So as of now, I think you're not the priorities. I mean the parents, Kylie and Aljur, I think what you need to think about now are the children. Kung meron man ako maipapayo bilang auntie, 'yun siguro ang mapapayo ko at 'yun lang din masasabi ko,” she explained.
Aljur and Kylie have been separated since April of this year. According to Kylie, they made a mutual agreement to date other people and have been working on “a healthy co-parenting relationship” for their sons Alas and Axl.
