Curse on showbiz couples seen with Luis-Jennylyn, Phil-Angel split
MANILA, Philippines – Entertainment columnists are pondering over the back-to-back break-ups of celebrity couples this year, especially after the reported split of Luis Manzano and Jennylyn Mercado, as well as that of Phil Younghusband and Angel Locsin.
Ambet Nabus, in his Bandera column on Thursday, said the “curse” merely continued after it was earlier reported that Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford had broken up, followed by Derek Ramsey and Cristine Reyes.
“Lahat ng nabanggit na break-ups ay walang itinuturong third party o nakisawsaw sa kanilang relasyon (All of the mentioned break-ups supposedly did not involve a third party),” said Nabus.
With Nikki and Billy, it was the latter who claimed the blame. However, rumors linking Billy and Coleen Garcia have been “trending topic”. Derek and Cristine both remain silent on the real reason behind their split but Nabus said the two have been spotted together for a show in Hawaii last week.
Nabus wrote it was Jennylyn who was hurt in the recent break-up with Luis although her ex-boyfriend Dennis Trillo’s name is being dragged into the issue. Reports, however, said Dennis had nothing to do with it.
Meanwhile, another Bandera article said that while the reason behind Angel and Phil’s break-up remains a mystery, some pointed out the two had stopped sending sweet messages over Twitter and Instagram.
“Sinu-sino pa kayang showbiz couple ang masasampolan ng “kamalasan” ng taong 2013? Sana naman waley na, ha! Quota na! (Which showbiz couple will next experience bad luck in 2013? Hopefully none anymore! We’ve reached the quota!),” Nabus said in his column.
Other celebrity couples who broke-up this year were Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson, Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago, Cesar Montano and Sunshine Cruz, and Gian Magdangal and Sheree.
