Xian Lim went viral on social media due to the separation rumors between him and his longtime partner, Kim Chiu.
In his online show, Ogie Diaz challenged Xian to clarify his relationship with VIVA Producer Iris Lee, whom the actor became a colleague in several films.
“At siyempre pasagot na rin natin kay Xian Lim kung sino si Iris Lee. Iyang si Iris Lee daw ay non-showbiz ito na parang ewan ko, staff ng Viva o writer ng Viva na nali-link kay Xian Lim,” said Ogie.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Iris became the managing editor for Megastyle.ph and is currently working as a producer for Vivamax.
She also finished her Bachelor of Arts in Film at the University of the Philippines.
Kim started to date Xian in 2012 and made their relationship public in 2018.
The actress remained mum if she was already separated from Xian.
“Sa amin na lang ‘yun. Wel’ll just keep it to ourselves muna,” she said.
As of writing, Xian has yet to give any statement on the issue he was facing.
However, Xian released a cryptic statement, asking the public to stop speculating about him.
“Plenty of hearsay right now and I would like to ask everyone to be mindful of [choosing] to believe in deceiving headlines and other information used to just pretend to know the whole story for personal gain and traction,” Xian wrote.
