The year might have started with hot celebrity hook-ups and lovely weddings of famous personalities in show business. But as what we know about the nature of the industry, it's not gonna be all fairy tales all year round. In fact, a 4-year long romance has just ended.
Model turned actress Angel Aquino confirmed recently that she and longtime boyfriend TV personality-businessman Lui Villaruz have called it quits.
When asked whether there was a third party involved, Angel Aquino was quick to say,
"Of course, in his part, maybe he's hurt about something. But as far as I know... and concerned, there's no third party involved. Wala po talaga. I'm not with anyone else. I did not have any relationship with someone else while with Lui," Angel told the press during the 5th "Us Girls" Anniversary presscon held earlier this week.
Angel, 38, clarified that it is not her first break-up with Lui, 34.
"Kami ni Lui we would be on and off, in those four years, but we just wouldn't tell people. Kasi para sa amin, di naman kailangan, di ba? Parang... then when you meet someone and people seeing you with another person, that's it, and you want to talk about it, then you talk about it. Pero hindi na namin ia-announce na, 'O hindi na kami ni Lui.' Kasi you're inviting intrigue pa, e."
However, it seems like the split is for good since Angel also revealed that Lui is currently dating 'Miss Earth'.
"Sabi niya, 'O, bago mo marinig sa iba, sasabihin ko na sa iyo na I'm dating Miss Earth.' And I'm happy for him. I'm very, very, very, very happy for him." Wala raw siyang ideya kung current o past Miss Earth title holder ang dine-date ngayon ng ex-boyfriend. Hindi na raw siya nagtanong at wala talaga siyang balak pang mag-text back dito."
In 2009, it has been reported that Angel and Lui were discussing marriage.
