The year has barely started and yet we have witnessed how the number of broken hearts had risen. What is going on?
Among the celebrity couples who declared breakups and joined the real-life Camp Sawi are the following:
1. Gretchen Ho and Robi Domingo
Rumors about the alleged breakup of Robi-Chen real-life love team had seeped through the social media in January.
Amid the speculations, Gretchen merely tweeted,
Robi, on the other hand, had said, "Siguro masasagot ko 'yan in the coming days, coming weeks, pero as of now, we are okay."
2. Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga
Perhaps one of the most controversial breakup news this year, the DanRich reel-to-real love team has ended - for good, says Erich.
The couple have not yet revealed the real reason for their breakup, and speculations, even harsh exchange between Erich and Daniel's family continue.
3. Ellen Adarna and Baste Duterte
These two, compared to all the other celebrity couples who had called it quits recently, had probably had the shortest relationship on record.
In January, photos of them kissing set social media on fire and just days later, Adarna had announced via a comment on Instagram that they had called it quits.
In a later interview, she admitted that the presidential son courted her after his father took oath. She also admitted that the breakup had been weird.
“It was a very weird breakup. It’s funny. Instead of texting a girlfriend na ‘Good morning,’ ang text niya, ‘Ano na lang kaya kung maghiwalay tayo?’ Sabi ko, okay. And then hindi na kami. Actually hindi ako na-shock,” she said.
4. Arci Munoz and Badi Del Rosario
In January, Arci Muñoz admitted that she and her boyfriend of three years, Badi del Rosario have called it quits.
Days before her birthday, the actress revealed that her relationship with Badi, the the frontman of the band called Mr. Bones and the Boneyard Circus has ended partly because of her busy schedule, on top of other issues.
5. Bela Padilla and Neil Arce
As January ends, Bela Padilla revealed that she and long-time beau Neil Arce has decided to part ways.
In an interview, Bela said, "Although I don’t want to go into details anymore as to the exact date and the reasons why we arrived at such decision as a way of showing respect to him. What matters is we broke up as friends."
