Janine Gutierrez confirms breakup with Elmo Magalona
MANILA, Philippines – GMA 7 actress Janine Gutierrez confirmed that she and singer-actor Elmo Magalona have broken up.
In an interview on 24 Oras on Thursday, October 20, Janine said she and Elmo became very busy and decided to focus on their work.
"Syempre mahirap kasi (Of course it's very hard because ) we have different schedules. He’s in a new place with new people and syempre, it’s hard to find time [for] a common schedule and everything, so we both just really decided to focus on work," she said.
The actress said it was very painful for her to end the relationship but is grateful for the support she's been getting. She also said that she will always treasure what she and Elmo had.
"We were together for more than two years. And that time syempre, that was all support at saka love, and kahit hindi na kami, syempre hindi magbabago yung pinagsamahan namin, so I’ll always wish the best for him," she said.
(We were together for more than two years. And that time of course, that all support and love, and even if we're not together anymore, what we had will not change, so I'll always wish the best for him.)
For now, Janine is focusing on a new TV project that is scheduled to air in November.
Janine and Elmo first starred in the remake of Villa Quintana. In 2014, Elmo confirmed that he and Janine were a couple during the press conference for their show More Than Words.
In late 2015, Elmo moved to ABS-CBN and starred with Janella Salvador in the drama Born For You, which ended last September.
Elmo is expected to attend the Star Magic Ball later this week. – Rappler.com
