MANILA – Elmo Magalona surprised his social media followers on Tuesday when he went public about his relationship with a non-showbiz woman whom he only identified as Ry.
However, Magalona immediately removed his Instagram post of their sweet photos together, leaving his supporters wondering why he deleted them.
On Wednesday, he took to the same social media platform to explain his action.
“I feel like I need to share to everyone why I removed my post from yesterday. I should have been more considerate. I posted without telling anybody,” he said.
Saying it was irresponsible, Magalona said: “I’d like to apologize to her, and her family for my actions and putting them in such a position. I don’t want to be taking away anybody’s privacy from them.”
Magalona then requested his followers to just “disregard what I had to share last night.”
“Let’s just focus on what matters right now. Peace to everyone,” he said.
Magalona was last known to be in a relationship with his erstwhile onscreen partner Janella Salvador.
They separated controversially in late 2018, with Salvador accusing her "Born For You" co-star of physical abuse.
Magalona had since kept private his personal life. His post with his current girlfriend on Tuesday marked the first time he confirmed a romance after Salvador.
