Shalani Soledad evades questions about alleged breakup with P-Noy
24 Oras video: Shalani Soledad mum on reported breakup with boyfriend P-Noy
Valenzuela Councilor Shalani Soledad was tight-lipped when 24 Oras asked her about the rumors that she and her boyfriend, President Noynoy Aquino, have already broken up. She merely said with a smile, "Next time na lang (I’ll comment next time). Thank you, thank you." She added that she does have time for her love life but it’s very limited because of her work.
While the "Presidential Sweetheart" was hesitant to reveal details about her high-profile relationship, her brother Martin Soledad reportedly confirmed to Bandera that she and Aquino are still together. "They’re very much okay," Martin supposedly told Bandera during the birthday party of Senator Bong Revilla at the Diamond Hotel on September 25.
Recent talks about the couple’s supposed breakup started with an article posted on entertainment blog, Mr. Blind Item, on September 16. The blogger wrote, "Calls and even text messages from the bachelor President have been very scarce since he sat in power." A Malacañang aide allegedly told Mr. Blind Item, "I can’t really confirm or deny (the split) but there may be truth in it. We have not seen Shalani lately and a breakup may be the reason... I’m pretty sure Presidential Sister Kris Aquino has nothing to do with it." In a text message sent to the media after the press reported the blog entry, Soledad outright denied the issue. "Not true. Thanks."
