Heart Evangelista and Brazilian-Japanese model-actor Daniel Matsunaga have ended their almost two-year relationship.
This, Heart’s mother, Cecille Ongpauco confirmed in a phone conversation with Yahoo! Philippines OMG! on Saturday, April 14, the same day the Kapuso actress tweeted, “Being single is embracing growth,” which she followed up with, “breakups don't always mean the other one was bad or we didn't love each other it could just be… we were too different.”
“Yes, she’s single. But I’d rather Heart not talk to media about it. It’s a private matter,” Mrs. Ongpauco said.
Daniel, who tweeted almost at the same time as Heart did on Saturday afternoon, said, “just asking God ....why? i tried.” His message bore a sad face icon.
He added, “cant be happy at this moment guys...God bless u all...thanks for the words....i am sure u all know what is happening....:(”
Daniel also said he intended to stay offline for a while. “I am going to be away of the internet for a few days...sorry for that...hope u guys understand....God bless u all,” he wrote.
Heart and Daniel were first rumored to have broken up late last year when they were not seen together in some events. They explained that they were just busy with their own careers. Daniel also went to Brazil last March for an operation on his nose to help him breathe better.
