Xian Lim and Kim Chiu’s fans couldn’t hide their sadness after talent manager and showbiz reporter Ogie Diaz reported that the celebrity couple had already decided to part ways after 12 years.
In his online program, Ogie said that a trusted source confirmed that Xian and Kim already separated, not because of a third party but because of the lack of plans from the actor.
According to Ogie, Kim already noticed that Xian was not planning for the future of their relationship.
“A friend of mine and a friend of Xian and Kim Chiu told me na totoong hiwalay na [sina] Kim Chiu at Xian Lim. ‘Di lang maamin ni Kim Chiu kasi nga pinoproseso pa ni Kim Chiu, at si Xian Lim din,” said Ogie.
“Sabi sa akin ng friend ko wala naman daw third party. It’s just that parang walang plano si Xian sa kanilang 12 years na relationship. Parang hindi niya priority. Parang naghihintay lang si Kim Chiu ng proposal. 12 years na sila eh,” he added.
The two started dating in 2012 but only admitted their relationship to the public in 2018.
They’re only one year longer than the relationship of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, who also just recently broke up this year.
On December 23, Kim admitted that she already ended their 12-year relationship.
“We owe our supporters the truth, but we also respect each other’s time of healing. In a relationship, love is always a significant factor, but sometimes love is not enough,” said Chiu. “We shared more than a decade of love, each other’s support system, and many beautiful memories,” said Kim.
“It was our mutual decision to transition our relationship into what we hope to be a lifelong friendship. We thank all our followers for their love and support, but now we ask you to appreciate our honesty and give us the privacy we need as we begin new chapters of our lives. To all our supporters, maraming salamat for all the love and understanding,” she added.
