Barbie Imperial is arguably one of the hottest young artists nowadays, after snagging the most coveted leading lady role in Precious Hearts Romances Presents Araw Gabi which is considered as her breakthrough.
As we witness how racy and romantic her scenes are with her newest loveteam partner JM de Guzman, fans and onlookers couldn’t help but ask how does her real-life boyfriend react.
In her recent interview in Tonight With Boy Abunda, the 20-year-old actress admitted that Paul Salas indeed feels jealous and shocked, particularly to the kissing scenes, but clarified that he fully trusts her and her leading man.
"May tiwala po siya sa akin, pati kay JM may tiwala po siya kasi magkaibigan po sila e,” she imparted.
Paul and JM first worked together in the 2011 remake of the classic drama Mula sa Puso.
Thus, in one of her media interviews, Paul expressed how much he admires the kindness of JM, who he looks up to as his “Kuya” and how confident he is that her girlfriend is in good hands.
Besides, according to her, it was him who encouraged her to audition and he even greeted her on Twitter when it was confirmed that she got the role.
Barbie and Paul started out as friends since she stepped out of Pinoy Big Brother in 2015, with the promising actress gushing that he was her ultimate celebrity crush and confessing that she used to wait for him at the airport along with other fans, presumably whenever he had trips at her hometown Albay.
From being best buddies, their relationship bloomed into romance, with their social media followers witnessing how sweet and inseparable the couple are during their gimmicks, out-of-town trips, and date nights. They’ve been each other’s arm candy in every special event they attend and constant companion in concerts and travels.
Who would forget that the young actor-dancer surprised her with a teacup poodle and ticket to the Manila concert of Justin Bieber? Moreover, who doesn’t feel kilig with the sappy captions of these young lovebirds pertaining to one another on their respective Instagram snaps?
PaulBie (as what their shippers call them) only attest that as long as you have faith in your partner and at the same time don’t break the trust he/she has given you, your relationship will definitely last.
