Paulo Avelino admits past relationship with KC Concepcion

After months of speculation and denial, actor Paulo Avelino finally admitted that he had a romantic relationship with actress KC Concepcion.

The "Bridges of Love" star made the confession when he was grilled by "The Buzz" host Boy Abunda on Sunday, March 15.

Prior to his guesting on the showbiz talk show, Paulo denied that KC was his girlfriend. In an interview, the actor said they are just "close friends" - a typical answer of celebrities when asked about relationship status.

At the presscon for his new television series on the Kapamilya network, the actor even denied their rumored breakup.

"Hindi naman siguro nagbi-break ang magkaibigan," he reportedly said. "Parang wala pa namang inaamin na kami tapos magbi-break kaagad?"

Paulo's admission of his past romance with KC was in perfect timing because "Bridges of Love," co-starring Jericho Rosales and Maja Salvador, will start airing on ABS-CBN tomorrow.
