Are reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach and Formula 1 racing driver Marlon Stockinger dating?
This was the question posed by netizens after the beauty queen posted a photo of her and Stockinger on Instagram on Sept 23.
The Filipino-German beauty queen, who turned 27 on Sept. 24, captioned the photo “Marloner.”
Stockinger, 25, is the first Filipino to win a formula race in Europe. Now based in Zurich, Switzerland, Stockinger currently drives for Lotus F1 Team Juniors in the 2013 World Series by Renault.
On March 11, Wurtzbach posted on Facebook: “In a relationship with Mikhail Varshavski.” The doctor later revealed that she was indeed dating the beauty queen.
“I am dating Pia. It’s a fairly new relationship but I’m really excited to see where it can go!” said Varshavski who has two million followers on Instagram.
During a visit to Manila in April, Wurtzbach finally admitted that she was dating Dr. Mike.
“He’s been very respectful in knowing that my priority is Miss Universe and I appreciate that very much. He knows that this is my life right now,” she said.
But the dating days between Wurtzbach and Varshavski are over after the beauty queen unfollowed him on social media accounts.
Wurtzbach even posted a cryptic message on Instagram: “Boy, I’m a prize not a catch!”
This drew conclusions that the beauty queen and the doctor were falling apart.
These days, Wurtzbach has deleted the photos of Dr. Mike on Instagram.
Dr. Mike, on the other hand, has removed some of his photos with Wurtzbach.
But the “Sexiest Doctor Alive” retained a photo of him and the beauty queen taken during a helicopter date in New York in April.
Aside from birthday greetings, fans also gave a seal approval to the current date of Wurtzbach.
“Everyone named Marlon just always so adorable,” an IG follower said.
Another fan commented: “Ang gwapo naman nyan.”
“Aww he’s my crush#QueenPia@piawurtzbach inggit much. Anyway, happy birthday girl,” a social media follower added.
