After three years, comic couple Jason Francisco and Melai Cantiveros have broken up.
This was confirmed by Francisco in an Instagram post last Tuesday. He admitted that he cried a lot due to their frequent arguments.
“Hanggang sa dumating ang punto na nanlalamig na kaming mag-asawa sa isa’t isa, ‘di na nagpapansinan sa bahay.
Hanggang sa ako’y sa kabilang kwarto na natutulog. Almost two months na kaming ganun. Ako’y iyak ng iyak parati, di pa ako nakaranas ng ganoong iyak sa buong buhay ko, sa lungkot na nangyayari sa amin, hanggang sa dumating na parati na kaming nag-aaway,” Francisco said on Instagram.
“Nagkahiwalay na po kami. Wala na po ang Melason. OA (over acting) po ako magmahal sa asawa ko dahil di po ako showbiz eh, sa akin lang ay dapat may isinasangalang-alang ka, dahil po iba-iba po tayo ng sitwasyon sa buhay,” Francisco posted.
Francisco revealed that they started fighting when his wife accepted the TV series “We Will Survive” which ended on July 15. He said that Cantiveros broke their agreement that she will not have a screen partner and that she will only have a leading man during the pilot week of the afternoon teleserye.
In May, the couple, popularly known as Melason, said that lack of bonding led them to arguments but pointed out that they have not separated.
The couple vowed to fight for their relationship, adding that they will not allow petty problems to get into their married life.
Melason rose to fame via the hit reality show “Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up” on ABS-CBN in 2009.
Their romance, which blossomed inside the “house” when they were still housemates, later led to a church wedding in General Santos City in December 2013. They have a two-year old daughter Amelia Lucille.
Sometime in May, Francisco also denied that they have split, according to a report on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
Followers of the couple then have expressed concern over the successive posts on social media of what seemed to be a couple’s quarrel. The couple even posted that Melason was over.
Abunda said that the couple were going through rough times, according to his reliable sources.
Abunda advised the couple to avoid the social media if they really have a problem.
“Melai, Jason avoid social media at this point. Jason, I know that even if you deny and that’s the gentleman’s way of handling this problem, may mga nagsasabing yes they were going through certain problems,” Abunda said.
“Whatever it is, whether it has something to do with work or personal, stop expressing your feelings through social media dahil ang hirap bawiin,” he added.
Following the announcement of the break-up last Tuesday, the couple made their IG account private.
