Paolo Contis Unfollows Yen Santos On Instagram

Paolo and Yen are still mum over their real status

Paolo Contis has gone private on Instagram, as he also removed girlfriend Yen Santos out of his following list. 

At press time, the 40-year-old actor no longer follows anyone on the social media platform. 

The recent gesture has revived breakup rumors following Yen’s move to unfollow Paolo on the same platform in May 2024.

More so, Yen initially deleted her birthday greeting for the actor, which first sparked rumors that there is a possible trouble in paradise. 

Just like Paolo, Yen is not following anyone on Instagram. However, she has not been following anyone even before the pandemic.

Despite signs of what seems to be a breakup, the two of them remain mum over the issue. In fact, Paolo has avoided answering questions related to their relationship.

It can be recalled that Paolo had evaded some personal questions during the premiere night of his film “Fuchsia Libre” on May 13, 2024. As he puts it, “As I always say, masyado na kayong maraming alam sa buhay ko. So, I’d like to keep my personal life personal.” 

Paolo expressed the same sentiment in an interview with Boy Abunda, saying that he’d like to keep personal matters private as much as possible. 

He iterates, “Dumating na kasi tayo sa point na, feeling ko, people think na, parang we owe it to everyone to share what’s happening to you, and I believe, it’s not part of my acting craft anymore. 

“So, habang nagshe-share ka nang nagshe-share, lalo kang pakikialaman. And respeto sa mga tao sa buhay ko, I think it’s time na yung mga pribadong bagay, mga walang kinalaman sa pag-arte mo o sa craft mo bilang artista, itira mo na yung para sa sarili mo.” 

Yen is also silent over the issue, but she seemingly hinted about the status of their romance through an Instagram reel about love and commitment. On her Instagram story, Yen uploaded a clip of Heart Evangelista advising people never to give away their heart “like it’s candy.”

Paolo Contis and Yen Santos’ rumored breakup 

Paolo and Yen’s romance was first speculated to be on the rocks after a controversial moment that Paolo had with his “Eat Bulaga!” co-host Arra San Agustin in the November 1, 2023 episode of the noontime program. 

Videos had it that the actor kissed his co-host. But as Paolo dismissed it, the gesture was just part of their sketch for an “Eat Bulaga!” segment. 

On November 22, 2023, Paolo assured everyone that he and Yen were still on good terms in an interview on “Fast Talk With Boy Abunda.” In the “Talk or Dare” segment, Paolo was asked about his relationship with Arra and Yen. The actor answered, “Yes kami pa ni Yen.

He added, “And alam mo yung kumakalat sa amin ni Arra, it’s an edited video of a portion in ‘Eat Bulaga!’ and it was maliciously edited.”

In a separate interview with GMA Integrated News’ Nelson Canlas on April 21, 2024, Paolo cried foul over criticisms that he and Yen received when they started dating. This prompted them to keep their relationship as lowkey as possible. 

“I guess, being in a quiet relationship, feeling ko mas may advantage because she is a very private person as well,” he shares. 

Before Yen, Paolo was in a longterm relationship with LJ Reyes. They have a daughter named Summer Ayana.
