After LJ Reyes announced her engagement to her non-showbiz beau, Paolo Contis expressed happiness for his former partner who, he said, “deserves to be happy.”
Contis gave a brief remark on Reyes’ engagement through a text message to entertainment reporter Nelson Canlas, as seen on “24 Oras” on Tuesday, May 30.
“Hi Nelson! Of course I’m very happy for her. She deserves to be happy,” the actor’s message to Canlas read.
Contis and Reyes’ breakup was confirmed in 2021 by the actor’s talent manager Lolit Solis, who asserted that the pair’s separation was a mutual decision. This statement was refuted by Reyes, saying she held onto her relationship with the actor for several months, for the sake of her children.
Reyes and Summer are currently in the United States together with the actress’ eldest child, Aki.
