He may have already performed live in numerous concerts, but Xian Lim is still prone to a bit of stage fright every now and then. 

Good thing then that his rumored girlfriend Kim Chiu was present during his major solo gig last Saturday. 

Lim drew shrieks when he begged the "Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin" star for a hug before continuing with his performance, saying that he needed one to boost his confidence. "Pampalakas lang ng loob," he teased. 

 

Chiu and Lim have long been rumored to be a couple. 

The speculations found more headwind when Lim was said to have been jealous after Chiu was cast for a teleserye opposite her ex-boyfriend, Gerald Anderson. 

"I get it if people will have that conclusion," Lim explained. "I mean I can't say that it's completely okay but it's part of it. It's easy kasi to get confused with the characters we portray in the teleseryes and the movies and in personal life."

Lim held the concert, dubbed "Songs in the Key of X," which was co-produced by his fans, at The Theatre at Solaire. 

On Instagram, he thanked those that made the gig possible. "Thank you to everyone who came and supported the show. I hope you all enjoyed! 'Til next time," he said.
