Megastar Sharon Cuneta caved in on the surrounding rumors about her daughter, KC Concepcion, being linked to Black Eyed Peas member and The Voice PH coach apl.de.ap.
After a contract renewal on her home channel ABS-CBN, the actor/singer/presenter was surprised about the news and commented, “I don’t know what’s happening to my daughter, in her life. That’s a surprise to me so I don’t know what to say.” On her take on the famed rapper, she stressed, “…I have a lot of respect for apl. He’s a good person. I just wish I heard it from her if it’s true.”
The rumor sparked at a point when Cuneta sensed that KC was being distant to her and her family after the 34-year-old actress failed to show up on her mother’s birthday celebration on the Sunday variety show, ASAP Natin ‘To. She remarked that while her daughter showed up for Christmas Eve, they never really had the opportunity to talk to each other.
This caused KC to address her absence through an apologetic Instagram post to which her mom reacted through a long, emotional Instagram message, spanning 3 posts.

Happy birthday, mama. ♥️ I’m sorry I couldn’t join the ASAP celebration for personal reasons. We may not be perfect, but in the many ways I know how to LOVE you, I have, I do and I always will. I have done all I can to help you when I could and to make you proud knowing you had me so young. If I fail, I’m only human and I’m sorry. But I try my best. Happiest birthday to you mama. May your light shine brighter and brighter and I will see you soon. I love you and pray for your happiness always. 🙏🏻✨💖
There, she stated, “I miss my baby. I miss you loving me with all your heart. I miss your presence in my life. We are your family. That will never change. I will be here, like I told you, loving you unconditionally no matter what. But allow your Mama some tears when my heart cannot hold them in any longer.”

But we are thankful that you still were able to come before midnight. I needed comfort because it had been a truly not-so-happy season for me; a very sad one in fact. So I was happy that you came. It was a happy night for us all, di ba? We missed you at Christmas lunch with the Pangilinans. We missed you on New Year’s Eve, on New Year’s Day, and I certainly missed you on my birthday. Where were you, anak? What were you doing? Why not even a text from you? I know you are in your 30s now and are free to do what you want. But if I hadn’t even bothered calling my Mommy when she was alive to tell her where I was going or what I was doing, I know she would’ve found it unforgivable, unacceptable. Anak, huwag kang lumayo sa amin. Kiko has loved and raised you with me since you were 9. Each of your sisters, and your brother, Dad – and I – crave a relationship with you. Buhay ko ang mga anak ko. Sure Kakie is my best friend because she talks to me the most and we are on the same wavelength. Pero even Miel and Miguel know na walang Ina na hindi mahal ang kanyang mga anak ng pantay-pantay. Kahit talikuran kayong lahat ng mundo, si Mama ang matitira. Siempre sasabihan ko pa rin kayo kung may mali kayong ginagawa, pero never ko kayong titigilang mahalin, bumaligtad man ang mundo, isa lang ang Mama ninyo. I love you very much, Kristina. I missed you at ASAP. But I missed you more the next day, my actual birthday. And last Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day. I miss you too often nowadays, it seems. Because 99% of the time I have no idea where you are, what you’re doing, and more importantly, HOW you are. Ang daming taong nakiki-
She also pleaded, “Come back to me, to us. And no – I am not stupid to expect any of my children to be perfect. You all deserve a good bonking-on-the-head every now and then, you gremlins! I don’t expect perfection. Just a bit of attention. Respect. Love. That’s all.”
Her post also aimed to acknowledge the circling mistruths from netizens since KC’s absence on ASAP sparked rumors on social media.
Concepcion has yet to respond to her mother’s posts.
During the press conference for her contract renewal, the Megastar said, “I think it’s normal lang sa mag-ina na may panahong ganyan. I am worried lang because I don’t know what she’s going through.” She reiterated that her concerns about KC is simply “a mother missing her daughter.”
Moreover, with her freshly signed contract with ABS-CBN, the Megastar is slated for more projects with the Kapamilya network, including a movie for Star Cinema and a possible third season of Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids.
