Kim refutes claim that Xian is only riding her coattails

Manila, Philippines – KIM Chiu is one of the most famous young actresses these days but being paired with her sometimes does not augur well for the partner.

Upcoming actor-singer Xian Lim knows this only too well as he has been accused of “using” Chiu to further his career – a matter that he already dutifully parried in several interviews.

Good thing for him, Chiu is ever-ready to belie the malicious insinuation. In a recent interview with PEP, Chiu appealed for critics to leave Lim be, even as she insists that his success is through his own merits.

Chiu reiterated that Lim wasn’t even supposed to be his leading man on “My Binondo Girl.”

“Si Jolo [Revilla] kasi, nagkasakit. Si Matteo [Guidicelli], nagkaroon ng problema. So, siya ang pinareha sa akin and nagustuhan naman ng tao,” she explained.

Chiu is adamant that Lim is not one to use others in order to gain popularity.

“Love team kami. Nagtutulungan kami, ’yun lang ang masasabi ko,” she said.

On Lim romancing her off-camera, Chiu gave a non-committal answer.

“Hindi naman ako sigurado kung nililigawan niya nga ako. Mahilig siyang magbigay ng mga gifts, kung anu-anong mga surprises, [pero] wala pang, ‘I love you,’ and mas maganda yung ganun. Siyempre, ‘di ba maganda yung magkaibigan muna kayo bago pupunta sa kung saan-saan.” (Bulletin Entertainment Online)
