MANILA, Philippines – Comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas has finally broken her silence after her manager Boy Abunda confirmed that she and her businessman boyfriend Jed Salang are going through a rough patch.

In an interview with The Philippine Star’s Funfare on Wednesday, delas Alas denied that Salang hurts her physically.

“It’s not true. Hindi ako sinasaktan ni Jed. Sa laki ba naman niya ay sasaktan akong napakaliit ko? Ang totoo, siya ang sinasaktan ko,” she said.

The comedienne said it is normal for couples to have some misunderstandings. “Wala namang pagsasamang perpekto ‘di ba?” she said.

Last week, Abunda said the comedienne immediately left the country after her concert with South Korean rapper Psy, adding that delas Alas probably wanted some time for herself that's why she left the country right away.

But delas Alas said she did not really run from her problem. “I went to the US to help Nikki with her papers kasi she’s turning 21,” she said.

Nikki is delas Alas’ daughter with former husband Miguel Vera, who is now based in the United States.

The actress also said she and Salang are working on fixing their problem.
