Ai Ai Delas Alas, Jed Salang break up

A visibly distraught AI Ai Delas Alas admitted to talk show host Boy Abunda her separation with Jed Salang, her partner for fifteen months. The couple married in Las Vegas, Nevada just last April 3. The two originally planned to have a church wedding in the Philippines by December.

Delas Alas’ interview with Abunda was recorded early morning of May 19. ABS-CBN has uploaded a six-minute clip of the interview on its YouTube channel. It starts with Abunda asking Delas Alas if she thought Salang loved her. After a long pause, the comedienne said “(Pagkatapos ng) lahat ng nalaman ko, tingin ko hindi,” before breaking down.

Complete with a melancholic music scoring, Abunda then asked Delas Alas about the “till death do us part” marriage vow that she took with him. She said: “Sinubukan kong isapuso yan, pero siguro, depende yan sa asawa mo,” hinting that the problem is on her estranged husband. The comedy concert queen then said that her lawyers will soon be working on the legal aspects of their separation.

Delas Alas also apologized to her kids for not being able to give them a “complete” family. “Baka hindi takaga yun para sa atin,” she recalled telling one of her sons. “OK na yung pagmamahal namin sa isa’t isa. Kami na lang,” she said. “Gusto ko lang naman namnamin yung (marital) vows ko at ipaglaban yung pag-ibig ko sa asawa ko,” she said, adding that it’s her dream to get married.

She also refused to give any specific message to her soon-to-be ex-husband. She also thanked God for giving her strength throughout the ordeal. “Sobrang pasasalamat ko sa Kanya. Feeling ko hindi Niya ako iniwan sa tuwing may nalalaman akong totoo. Sobrang pasasalamat ko na hanggang maaga, nakawala na ako.” ABS-CBN did not include in the uploaded clip where Delas Alas revealed Salang’s infidelities and physical assaults against her.

Let me share some thoughts:

1. Yesterday’s episode of The Buzz is certainly a ratings winner, since it also features Abunda’s interview with Marjorie Barretto where she personally admitted that she is the woman in the scandalous photos that circulated online recently.

2. Breaking down on national television because of a personal problem? Kris started it, KC Concepcion copied it, and now Aiai also did it. What else is new?

3. In hindsight, it’s wise that the couple married in Las Vegas, where getting a divorce is cheap. According to one website, filing a joint petition for divorce can be as low as $625 only or about P25,000.That’s the place where Britney Spears was able to marry for just 55 hours.

In the Philippines where divorce is not allowed, annulment proceedings can drag on for years with hundreds of thousands of pesos spent – without guaranteed results. Ask Amy Perez.

4. I want to share this quote from the website The Christian Pundit: “Singleness can be great. Marriage to the wrong person is a nightmare.”

  1. Ai its not the end of the world, kaya mo yan. God heals the broken hearted. God gives us trials na alam nyang malalampasan mo. Dont be sad, nothing is impossible with God. Just go on with your daily life with your family. Your real soulmate is out there waiting for you. Dont let this bad experience stop you from living. Be happy! Cheers!

  2. I know it’s hard for Ai-Ai but in life, you can’t have everything all at the same time. Perhaps she’s better off alone. Or maybe she needs to keep trying. Either way, I hope Ai-Ai learn to keep things private. I mean, she’s not Kim Kardashian for crying out loud. Mas lumalaki kasi ang issue pag overwhelming ang publicity. Celebrities nowadays should learn from their predecessors like Dolphy et. al. Anyways, Mark, sa blog mo ba nanggaling yung leaked photo ni Marjorie?

    1. No. I uploaded the picture here on my blog but I am not in any way the original uploader. As we say in Filipino, nakisawsaw lang ako sa isyu for the sake of blog visits.

    2. the comment sounds like: if its a Filipino artist, i.e. Ai-Ai, she has to “keep things private” but if you’re Kim Kardashian its okay? what a double standard!

      1. With Aiai its the real thing. But wd kardashian its all about publicity and money! They dont even know whats real and whats not!

  3. Miss Ai, ok lang yan, minsan ganyan talaga ang buhay, magmahal masaktan magmahal uli hanggang sa mahanap mo na talaga ang tao para sa iyo, Hindi pa siguro napapanahon kaya dont stop loving, tsaka piliin mo na ang taong mamahalin mo. At least habang maaga pa nalaman mo ang totoo, I salute you for fixing your life this early dahil marami nagmamahal sayo, marami natutuwa sa iyo, sa mga taong pinapaligaya mo at nag.aabang pa sa mga movies mo. etc.

    God Bless

  4. I think JED SALANG is psychologically unstable person, he is sick because he can not manage his anger. KARMA lang ang katapat nyan. Miss AI this is a lesson learned. Jed is the reflection of how he was raised by his family. I think you are not the only one whom he had hurt maybe there are other women too. Pls. give your self dignity by filing a case against him for domestic violence because here in the US it is not tolerated by the law he will end up in jail for domestic violence. Hind man niya inisip that he is living in your own home with your children how can he be as a man. He did not even think for what he has done he give shame to him self as a gold digger baka naman that is his business. If I were you bawiin mo yun CAMARO He don’t deserve that for fooling you. Shame to his woman baka she will be the next victim to violence.

  5. Ai Ai I salute you for being strong in getting rid of Jed. He doesn’t deserve your love! It’s his BIG LOSS — stay strong you have children who love you dearly… Most of all GOD is in your side… He saved you when you grabbed the rosary during Jed’s maltreatment to you. Keep your head up high! We are on your side! Do not be ashamed of what happened to you… there is NO PERFECT relationship… we all make mistakes and what is good from making a mistake is we learned a lot from it and it makes us stronger and wiser… WE LOVE YOU AI AI!!!
    God Bless Miss Ai Ai… hugs and kisses!

  6. Nakakalungkot ang nagyayari kay ms. ai-ai, pero ganon talga ang buhay na kahit anong pagsubok ang pinag daana nya ajan naman ang pamilya mo at mabuti nalang na early on your relationship with him you know already his color. Keep up always Ms. Ai-ai. God Bless You.
