Kapuso star Paolo Ballesteros hasn’t officially come out, but there were already speculations about his preference. His penchant for playing outlandish gay roles and unbelievable make-up transformations further fueled rumors, but the ‘Eat Bulaga’ kept mum…until last year.

Back in May 2017, Paolo began to post hints about his close relationship to Roland Ochoa Anog, a G-Force dancer. According to the GMA article, the couple became official on February 14, 2017. Aside from donning matching gold rings, Paolo and Roland were also seen sporting similar tattoos on their arms.
On their third month together, the pair took a vacation in Oriental Mindoro for some sun, sand, and sea. Prior to this, Roland reportedly met Paolo’s mom, Danielida.
While the pair never really confirmed their relationship, rumor has it that they broke up when May ended. And just like that, Paolo’s past relationship was never really talked about, until the recent press conference for his movie, “Amnesia Love.”
When asked about his love life, the actor replied in gay lingo, “Nganga. Zerowena [zero].”
Further prodding about the couple rings he previously posted made Paolo quip, “Napako ang pangako.”
The actor-host also shared some of his plans for Valentine’s Day this year, which will be unlike last year’s colorful milestone.
“Birthday ng lola ko. February 14 ang birthday niya kaya baka umuwi kami ng Cabanatuan to celebrate.”
Although he hasn’t since his ex since their split, Paolo revealed that he still keeps in touch with Roland since there’s no bad blood between them. Moreover, the award-winning actor considers his former partner a friend.
“Hindi pa kami nagkikita nang personal, pero magkausap kami. Okay naman kami.”
While the break-up is quite a traumatic experience for him, Paolo said that he had no choice but to move on from it. Likewise, he learned to deal with the pain through constant working. He dished out an advice:
“Deal with it! Wala namang ibang way. Masakit, pero ganun talaga. Nag-work nang nag-work.”
