“In connection with the news on the separation of Angel and I, I would like to thank you for all your support throughout our relationship. It was definitely a happy one. As much as we tried to make it work, we would just like to request all of you to support us in our choice and respect one another in keeping our personal lives to ourselves.
“It is a sensitive matter and I personally apologize that it took awhile for me to let everyone know about the situation. I am very grateful for your support we hope you continue doing so in each of our endeavors.
“Neither of us regret the time we spent together, we enjoyed each other’s company and really made the most out of what we had. There are no faults to this, it was not an issue of who did or did not do something. It was a mutual decision and although it was difficult, we just felt that this would be the best thing to do given our circumstances.
“Although we parted as a couple, we are thankful that we remain friends and we only wish the best for each other.
“Thank you very much for your support.”
