- Bad news loomed the Ginebra player Sol Mercado when his engagement with Denise Laurel had been called off
- In a deleted Instagram post, the actress announced their separation one day after his team’s championship win
- Since their engagement in 2013, the previously couple already postponed their wedding once
It seems like the victorious spirit surrounding basketball player Sol Mercado was cut too short.
While his teammate Mark Caguiao got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Mercado’s wedding was called off by his fiancée, Denise Laurel.
The actress broke the news to the public just one day after the Gin Kings won the championship in the Governors’ Cup 2016.

The said post was made right after people started tagging her with congratulatory posts. It has been deleted since then from the actress’ account.
In there, she insisted that she and Mercado remained to be good friends despite their separation.
Although she stated her happiness for her former beau’s success, she politely asked for everyone’s prayers and support instead. In addition, she quickly addressed cheating rumors and had nothing but good words for the basketball player.
Before everyone could add their two cents to the story, she also clarified that both of them already tried their best to make the relationship work.
In another statement posted today, Laurel apologized on the timing of her previous post which must have rained on the team’s parade. According to her, she didn’t have any intention of hurting Mercado and acted solely on her wish to not be reminded of him during these times.
The two got engaged in 2013 and even planned on celebrating with 2 weddings. Even though the date was postponed, they insisted that they’re very much together and the delay was caused by time restriction.
This came as a shock for everyone since just last week, Laurel even proudly supported her ex-boyfriend while wearing the team’s jersey.

The fans’ celebratory nature also got cut off as they expressed remorse in the breakup. Even though they’re as heartbroken as the former couple, they only offered support for the two.
Mercado hasn’t commented yet on the issue.
