Xian Lim categorically denied speculations that he and rumored girlfriend Kim Chiu have called it quits.
"No, it's not true," said Xian when asked if he and Kim have broken up.
It should be noted, however, that Xian and Kim have never admitted in previous media interviews that they are in a relationship.
The 27-year-old actor explained, "When I first heard it, sabi ko, 'Saan nanggaling 'yan?'
"There's a couple of statements na sabi nga ganito't ganyan, naghiwalay na sila...
"But, me and Kim, we're fine. We were surprised about that issue."
Xian was interviewed by TV host Boy Abunda in ABS-CBN's weeknight talk show Tonight With Abunda last Friday night, July 7.
Xian also clarified that he is not jealous of Gerald Anderson, Kim's ex-boyfriend and leading man on the Kapamilya daytime soap Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin.
Addressing rumors about her supposed breakup with Kim, Xian elaborated, "I just wanna add something into it. I get it if people will have that conclusion.
"I mean, I can't say na it's completely okay. But it's part of it."
The 27-year-old actor continued, "It's easy kasi to get confused with the characters we portray in the teleseryes and in the movies and in personal life."
At the end of the interview, Xian was asked who makes him happy.
He answered, smiling, "Family makes me happy. Kim makes me happy."
