MANILA, Philippines – Friday, October 18, would have been the second anniversary of actor-TV hosts Luis Manzano and Jennylyn Mercado, but the couple are now confirmed to be separated, pep.ph reports.

There is no word yet from either of the two celebrities, but the entertainment news portal says its sources close to the now-estranged couple have confirmed this.

While they were together, Luis and Jennylyn have been an inspiration of romantic stability in their otherwise volatile milieu. They have been an inspiring sight in their public appearances, as when they joined Luis’ mother Vilma Santos and family in the Cinemalaya premiere of her film ‘Ekstra’ in July. The couple has also been chiding each other in jest, from time to time, regarding their respective hosting careers.

Pep.ph reports that Jennylyn will soon hold a story conference on her new drama series, an occasion wherein she may be prodded into disclosing her side regarding the breakup. – Rappler.com
