MANILA – Ai Ai delas Alas has deactivated her social media accounts.
The 50-year-old comedienne explained her decision to cancel her account on image-sharing service Instagram, among others.
“Na-realize ko na, modesty aside, in my 25 years in show business, parang ‘yung mga nababasa ko, hindi na angkop sa pangyayari sa buhay ko,” she said. “‘Yung iba kasi, parang sobra naman. Hindi ko na kaya tanggapin ‘yung iba. Okay nalang din na wala.”
In recent months, delas Alas has been making the rounds online over her relationship with 21-year-old Gerald Sibayan. Just last month, the “Tanging Ina” star even took to Instagram, where she had over 294,000 followers, to openly express her love for Sibayan on the occasion of his birthday.
“Imbes na masaktan ako,” delas Alas explained, “okay na rin na wala nalang akong social media. Okay na ‘yun. Nakiki social media nalang ako sa anak ko. Tutal, feeling ko naman parang mas pangkabataan talaga ang social media.”
With the New Year only weeks away, delas Alas said she is content with having an inspiration, in the person of Sibayan. She denied, however, that they are planning to tie the knot in 2015.
“Ay, wala! Walang pang gano’n,” she said. “Masaya lang at happy lang na may inspirasyon at may kasama naman ako sa buhay.”
