- Jason Francisco and Melai Cantiveros have separated after three years of marriage.
- Melai has been defending her husband from online bashers even after separation
- She cried again when she was reminded how close their daughter Mela is to her father
Melai Cantiveros cried over Jason Francisco again on live TV during “Magandang Buhay.” It would seem that Melai really loves her husband and couldn’t simply get over him.
During the show where Yassi Pressman and her dad were guests, Melai couldn’t help but compare the relationship and the bond she saw between Pressman and her father, with that of Jason and their daughter Mela.

She tried to hold back the tears, but she wasn’t able to. Perhaps, the hurt was so deep that any small instance can open the floodgates of pain and longing once again.
Melai tried explaining the tears.
“My daughter is daddy's girl. That's why the two of you remind me of my ‘mag-ama’ (father and daughter),” said Melai.
Out of curiosity, the father of Yassi asked where her husband was, to which she quickly replied, “in my heart.”

Francisco posted a lengthy letter on his Instagram account, blaming ABS-CBN for destroying his family. According to Francisco, Melai was originally supposed to work on a series without a leading man. It turned out that she had one. The worst part was that Francisco learned of it at a much later date, about two months after.
Some people were quick to bash Francisco online. However, Melai defended her husband from bashers. She said that her husband was a good provider and that he didn’t have any kind of vice. His only love was his family.
Although Melai and Jason have separated, their marriage has not yet been severed since no annulment was made.
