MANILA, Philippines — After confirming that they have parted ways, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach clarified on Friday that her ex-boyfriend and professional racecar driver Marlon Stockinger and his family never depended on her financially.

“It’s true that Marlon and I are no longer together. I wish him and his family well, and out of respect for them, let me make it clear – Marlon and his family never depended on me financially,” the beauty queen said in a statement released by her manager Rikka Infantado- Fernandez.

“This will be my only statement on the matter. Thank you for your support,” she added.

Reports of the couple’s split surfaced on Thursday, with the Philippine Entertainment Portal citing Stockinger’s joblessness as a factor. They were together for over two years.
