Remember the good old days when someone broke up with you and you at least got a last dinner out of it, or some teary scene in a coffee shop that you could then write about in your diary? Well, those days are gone, my friends. These days, it’s all about breaking up digitally — i.e., by email, text message, or social media
Even celebrities, no matter how famous they are, were not spared from this kind of breakup. Here’s a list of Filipino celebrities who were dumped over text:
The Hugot Queen is probably the most vocal celebrity when it comes to her past. In an interview with Magandang Buhay while promoting her movie “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes”, the actress revealed that one of her exes ended their relationship thru a single text message.
“Hanggang text lang ba naipundar ko? Ang dami kong naibigay, ‘tapos nung hiwalayan, hanggang text lang? I don’t deserve it,” she said.
The “Hugot Queen” also said that it is not ideal to break up through text because it would still be better if lovers can end their relationship on a good note.
“Kasi, pati ikaw, magiging bitter ka doon sa pinagsamahan n’yo. Ayaw n’yo naman na magkaroon kayo ng pangit na closure, di ba? Maganda yung, ‘Tapusin na natin ‘to.’
“Oo, may galit ‘yan, may pain ‘yan, pero alam mo eventually na puwede kayo maging magkaibigan kapag tinapos ninyo sa maayos na paraan,” she added.
Upon Jericho Rosales’ return from a month-long shoot in Malaysia together with Carmen Soo, his ex-girlfriend Heart Evangelista broke up with him over text in 2008. Echo couldn’t believe when his girlfriend at that time ended their three-year relationship with a simple text.
“Sad news and, you know, there’s been a big mistake. I, myself, I’m confused, e. I heard nakipag-break siya sa akin on TV, e, so… on text, it wasn’t clear, e,” he said.
Presidential son, Baste Duterte, initiated their breakup via text message. This gorgeous celebrity was once dumped after months of dating.
“Instead of parang girlfriend na ‘Good morning,’ ganyan-ganyan, ang text niya, ‘Ano kaya kung maghiwalay tayo?’ Siya ang nagsabi. And then, ayun, hindi na kami nag-usap,” the actress said. Adarna also said that she and Duterte decided to stay good friends.
Bianca King took sometime before she revealed that her relationship with Dennis Trillo had ended. She even said that she would not do what Dennis did to her to anyone, breaking up over text message.
“Mga one month after po, naka-get over na ako. Kasi po, hindi po magandang gawin yun sa kahit na sinong tao. “Kahit hindi mo man mahal yung tao, bilang respeto mo sa tao, maganda na makapag-usap nang face to face,” she said
Rachelle Ann Go
Rachelle Ann Go had a rough breakup with John Pratts before pursuing her international success in the broadway industry. The ending of Go’s relationship with Pratts was a confusing one. Toni Gonzaga made the breakup known to the public after she mentioned it in the now-defunct showbiz talk show The Buzz.
Entertainment Ricky Gallardo published on the Philippine Star that, “It was just a text message. Break na raw sila. John didn’t talk to Rachelle Ann anymore.”
However, it was Go who was confused the most with how her relationship with Prats ended. The singer was not even able to give a clear explanation of it.
