LOS ANGELES — Actress-TV host KC Concepcion finally broke her silence on her rumoured romantic relationship with Filipino American singer apl.de.ap.
At the sidelines of Martin Nievera’s 40th anniversary concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the daughter of mega star Sharon Cuneta and actor Gabby Concepcion clarified that reports were all rumors, pointing out that they have had no romantic ties at all.
Interviewed by ABS-CBN’s MJ Felipe, KC, 37, who is Maria Kristina Cassanda Concepion in real life, said: “Hindi, hindi [naging kami].”
She admitted though that she is close to the FilAm member of the Black Eyed Peas. “ Very close kami, I love the guy. I respect him, I admire him,” she said
“Pinapatawa niya ako nang sobra, mabait siya sa akin. Hindi naman, he’s very busy with work as well. Whatever will be, will be. No, hindi kami,” she stressed.
As ABS-CBN reported, KC clarified also her love life.
“Dito sa States, ang hirap mag-date. Minsan akala mo serious, ‘yun pala casual lang pala. I’m in my 30s. I’m not going to lie, I definitely take relationships more seriously now,” she told MJ Felipe.
“Tapos I dream na one day ako naman ang ikakasal, kasi kinasal na ‘yung sister ko sa Sweden. My gosh, naunahan pa ako!,” she added.
KC, according to MJ Felipe, even joked that hopefully she’ll get married in 9 months.
She was warned that gossipers might think she’s pregnant as a reference to the 9 months experience.
KC stars in a Hollywood movie she filmed with Filipino-American actor Dante Basco and director-producer Jhett Tolentino.
“Ini-edit na siya now. Baka January [ipalabas]. Nakakatawa yung pelikula, it’s about two people na nagdivorce and ayaw magbayad nung lalake. So naghahanap siya ng way na takasan yung babayaran niyang alemony. Ako yung asawa niya,” she told ABS-CBN.
KC said the producer has plans to submit the movie in festivals in the US and will be available for streaming or cinema showcase by January of next year.
After staying in New York City for five months while filming the movie, KC moved back to Los Angeles and bonded with her mother, Sharon Cuneta, for about two to three weeks.
KC disclosed it was really a difficult time for her mom when Cherie Gil passed away.
“We love Tita Cherie, we love her and her family, she loved my mom very much. Na-trauma siya kasi one of her good friends nawala, eh mommy ko full of life, masaya lagi she was really very sad,” she said.
This week, KC will fly back to Manila to attend her sister Miel’s 18th birthday. She admitted she also got surprised when Miel came out as queer two months ago.
“I didnt know about it, I found out like everyone else. After that, I just talked to mom and to dad and sabi ko lang kung saan siya happy, kung saan siya masaya, we’ll support her.”
