Ogie Diaz urged Xian Lim to clarify to fans the status of his relationship with Kim Chiu and to set the record straight as well on the rumors linking the actor to film producer Iris Lee.

The comedian-showbiz reporter talked about the breakup speculations hounding Lim and Chiu through a vlog on Diaz’s YouTube channel last Friday, Dec. 1.


“‘Yan ang hintayin natin mula kay Kim Chiu at Xian Lim—kung totoong break na sila. Kung hindi pa, edi very good,” Diaz said. (Let’s wait for the confirmation if Kim Chiu and Xian Lim have indeed broken up. If they didn’t, then good.)


Diaz then intrigued his fellow hosts Mama Loi Villarama and Jegs after he added, “At syempre, pasagot na rin natin kay Xian Lim kung sino si Iris Lee.” (And of course, let us ask Xian as well about Iris Lee.)

“Si Iris Lee daw ay non-showbiz na parang staff or writer ng Viva na nali-link kay Xian Lim,” Diaz noted. (Iris Lee is apparently a non-showbiz staff or writer for Viva who is being linked to Xian Lim.)

Diaz said he did not personally know Lee but that her name has been circulating on social media platform Reddit.

Lee, a producer under Viva Communications Inc., is best known for producing the films “Bird Day” (2016), “Deleter” (2022) and “Hello, Universe!” (2023), where she worked together with Lim.

Diaz, who claimed that another unnamed individual is being linked to the actor-director, did not expound on Lee but urged Lim to release a straightforward statement on his relationship status.

Chiu and Lim have been together since 2012. The “It’s Showtime” host denied the breakup speculations earlier in November but when asked about it again weeks later, Chiu said, “We’ll just keep it to ourselves [for the meantime].”

The pair has yet to publicly confirm or deny the rumors as of this writing.
