Actor Paulo Avelino has clarified why he deleted photos of his rumored girlfriend, actress KC Concepcion, on his Instagram page.

Avelino made it clear that he deleted several photos on his Instagram account, not just Concepcion’s, to keep up with his page’s black and white theme.

He stressed that people should not make an issue out of his Instagram account, which has the username pauavelino.

Sa Instagram kasi ang theme ko is black and white. So parang nilinis ko lang sila lahat, lahat ng colored. Actually, ang dami ko talagang tinanggal, not just ‘yung picture niya but also pictures with others. Tinanggal ko sila lahat. So if you see my page, it’s just black and white. It’s all quotes, films and me. Wala namang issue,” he explained.

Some netizens recently speculated that Avelino and Concepcion are not on good terms after the actor deleted their photos on Instagram.

Avelino maintained that he and Concepcion are doing well.

Siguro nabibigyang malisya lang ng mga tao pero wala, wala. We’re okay,” he said. “It’s still the same.”

The Kapamilya actor admitted, however, that they barely have time for each other given their hectic schedules. He is currently one of the lead stars of “Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon,” while Concepcion is part of “Ikaw Lamang.”

Both are primetime shows on ABS-CBN.

Well, busy pareho eh. Pareho kaming may soap ngayon. May ginagawa rin akong movie ngayon. Mahirap, ang hirap lalo pa ngayon may Cosmo (bachelor bash), may Bench (fashion show) pa… Ngayon, concentrate muna kami sa mga career namin. That’s what we’re doing now,” he said.

When asked about the last time that they got to spend some time together, Avelino briefly said: “Ayoko nang [masyadong mag-share], ayoko nang bigyan ng malisya ng tao.”

Meanwhile, Avelino said he is happy with how things are going with his life, reacting to comments that his black and white Instagram page may be reflecting his melancholic self.

Masaya, maraming nagpapasaya sa akin. Everything’s going great,” he said. “Personal choice ko rin namang gawing black and white [ang Instagram page ko]… Kung ‘di nila ma-appreciate, may follow and unfollow.”

Both Avelino and Concepcion are featured on the latest issue of Cosmopolitan Philippines. Concepcion is the cover girl of the main magazine, while Avelino appears on Cosmo Men. (MNS)
