MANILA, May 16 (Mabuhay) — Sexy actress LJ Reyes has neither confirmed nor denied persistent rumors about the status of her relationship with Paulo Avelino.

The Kapamilya actor has been quiet when it comes to LJ and their two-year-old son, Ethan Akio.

Last year, speculation abounded that the two “StarStruck” discoveries have called it quits when Paulo failed to acknowledge LJ and their son during his acceptance speech for winning the 2012 Urian Best Actor award for his role in Alvin Yapan’s “Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa.”

The “Walang Hanggan” actor was also reported to have been evading questions about LJ saying those were “very private” matters.

“Basta for me ang importante masaya ako, masaya si Akio, masaya kami,” LJ said.

She also asked for privacy for whatever status she has with Paulo. “Basta happy kami. Sana maging happy tayong lahat parati.

“Let’s all be a blessing to each and everyone, to each other. Let’s all be happy…” (MNS)
