Kiray Celis came to her non-show boyfriend’s defense after he was criticized for buying her a pair of designer shoes and a smartphone as early Christmas presents.
The “Goin ‘Bulilit” alum told fans that her boyfriend, game streamer Stephan Estopia, gifted she in brown Louis Vuitton sandals and an iPhone 13 last Sunday, November 7th. This has led to several netizens launching negative comments at the couple, an issue Celis addressed on her Instagram page on Tuesday, November 9.
Celis said some people have told her and Estopia that love is not based on gifts and that a man can still cheat even if he buys expensive things for his partner. The actress also received comments claiming that she actually purchased the sandals and smartphone.
“Yes, masyadong mahal ‘tong LV na sandals on iPhone 13 for gifts [Stephan Estopia]. Halos pasok lang sa sweldo niya sa [streaming] and with endorsements na ginawa niya, pero hindi yun naging hadlang para hindi niya daw maibigay all the taste ko, “Celis told fans.
(Yes, Louis Vuitton sandals and the iPhone 13 are expensive for Stephan Estopia to give me. His gambling salary and sponsorships are barely enough. [to buy these], but that doesn’t stop him, he said, from giving me everything I want.)
She then expressed gratitude to her boyfriend for always showing her how much he loves her.
“Nagpapasalamat ako sa jowa ko kasi kahit hindi naman niya kailangan patunayan sa into – at dahil sa makikitid na utak niyo na kesyo ako lagi gumagastos, [ako bumili] – eh ginagawa niya pariin [ang mga ito], “She said.
(I thank my boyfriend because even though he doesn’t need to prove himself to you – and because you’re all so restricted that you say I always shop, I bought the items – he still does these things.)
“Salamat kasi all buhay ko halos to use and kailangan of pamilya ko the priority ko. Madalas nakakalimutan ko na yung sarili ko pero lagi mong pinaparamdam sa’kin na deserves ko lahat kasi mabait and masipag akong tao,” Celis turned to Estopia.
(Thank you because in my whole life, my priority has mainly been the things my family needs. Sometimes I forget about myself, but you always make me feel that I deserve it all because I am a good and hardworking person.)
In addition to the new brown sandals, Celis also received a pair of white designer shoes from Estopia for her birthday last July. The video game streamer also showed his love for the actress by getting a tattoo of his eyes on his chest last September.
Celis first introduced Estopia to the public in December 2019, when she opened up to fans saying she finally felt what it means to be truly loved. /RA
