Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and professional race-car driver Marlon Stockinger finally called it quits after almost 3 years of relationship.
Pia’s business manager Rikka Infantado-Fernandez confirmed the controversial split on PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
“Yes, it’s confirmed and you can quote me on that,”
Rikka said in her text message to PEP.ph this Thursday, December 5.
According to her, Pia and Marlon have had some misunderstandings. But the former couple was able to patch things up somehow.
“On and off naman na matagal na, but yung final was September pa,”
She added that the two have already broken up by the time Pia celebrated her 30th birthday in Bali, Indonesia.
Pia already deleted all of their photos of Marlon from her Instagram account.
Marlon’s last photo with Pia was May 29, 2019.
They have also unfollowed each other on Instagram.
Pia then admitted that she made the first move so they would meet a handsome race car driver.
“I found my boyfriend on Instagram.”
“I just started liking a few pictures first, just to kinda knock on the door, like let him know,‘ I’m here. ’I’ve always had a crush on this guy.”
In an interview with the two last June 2018, Pia and Marlon said they were not ready to get married yet. Though the race car driver admitted that Pia was “wife material.”
“Not in the near future, no. We’re not there yet.”
“I still feel like we want to achieve a lot individually. Marami pa kaming plano individually.”
“Marami pa kaming gustong ma-achieve, ako sa career ko and siya sa racing career niya.”
When PEP.ph released in March 2017 the news that Marlon had twin children, Pia choose to remain with Marlon and continue their relationship.
The former couple supposedly to celebrate the third anniversary of their relationship last November 30.
According to a PEP.ph source, Marlon’s joblessness was one of the reasons for Pia to leave their relationship.
