Actress and television host KC Concepcion has found a new romance after her traumatic tear-filled experience with actor Piolo Pascual.
He’s Pierre Emmanuel Plassart, a French filmmaker-photographer based in the United States and Europe. He is said to be a son of a big supermarket chain owner in Paris, France.
Showbiz authority Mario Bautista said KC is not hiding Plassart from the public eye as she even took him with her to the taping of the show she’s currently hosting, “X Factor Philippines,” on ABS-CBN.
KC has also introduced Plassart to her Lola Elaine Cuneta who happened to be there at the taping.
Earlier, she was linked to singer Jules Knight of the British band Blake, who also came to Manila to visit her.
The showbiz columnist said KC is more fond of Pierre Plassart as she even took him on a trip to Boracay.
The columnist added: “She likes it that they both speak French. She recounted that they were looking at the night sky in Boracay when he told her that one the stars up above is for her, named after her.”
He even got a certificate saying he bought the star just for her from the International Star Registry. “Never pa akong nabigyan ng star,” Mario Bautista quoted KC as saying, sounding very pleased with it.
In his column, KC said she has admitted she likes Pierre as he’s very sweet “at totoong tao”, but she says they’re not yet officially together.
“Special for me yung he came over to our country to visit me kahit ang layo-layo ng pinanggalingan niya. Pero hindi ako nagmamadali kasi ang dami kong trabaho ngayon,” she added.
Months ago, KC cried on TV over her failed relationship with erstwhile boyfriend Piolo Pascual.
In another report, the daughter of mega star Sharon Cuneta and actor Gabby Concepcion said that it is only right to acknowledge the presence of Pierre in her life, as the French guy stayed beside her through her darkest days and made her smile every time.
“It was something I owed my friends, I owed the guy na mabait sa akin na i-acknowledge siya na nakakapag pasaya talaga siya sa akin ngayon (He’s nice and he’s making me happy now),” she said.
KC said she’s still “afraid” after what she’s been through with her past relationship, describing the experience as “traumatic” not only to her but also to her family.
KC maintained that she has had enough with her past relationship and now she’s taking a different route with Pierre.
“It’s nice that I’m moving on but I’m taking my time,” the “X-Factor Philippines” host said.
KC said that aside from her happy family, career and love life, she feels secured more than ever.
“I’m happy that my work really does pay off, na kahit papaano eh mas relax na din ako kasi na-share ko yung part ng buhay ko na di masyadong naging maganda and okay lang din yun pala. Hindi na ako masyadong natatakot mag share,” she said.
