Paulo Avelino, an actor was criticized recently for not attending his son Ethan Akio‘s Batman-inspired 7th birthday party on July 22 at the Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan in Libis, Quezon City. Akio’s mom LJ Reyes is now in a relationship with actor Paolo Contis.
Some netizens bashed Paulo for being absent at the event but he finally opened up about the reason for not attending his son’s birthday.
According to Paulo, the reason why he was absent at his son’s Batman-themed birthday party was because he was not given an invitation to the event.
He explained: “Hindi ako invited. Hindi ako invited, yun lang.” Despite not being invited, Paulo still sent a gift to his son.
Akio’s birthday party was attended by his classmates, friends, and family. The party was exactly what Aki wanted. In fact, the birthday boy arrived at the venue early.
Meanwhile, Paulo admitted that he has a new girlfriend named Jodie Elizabeth Tarasek, a Filipino-Australian model.
