Father shocked GMA 7 exec allegedly caused split
MANILA, Philippines--Jolina Magdangal's father, Jun, respects the singer-actress' continued silence on her break-up with boyfriend Bebong Muñoz as he expresses shock over rumors that a GMA-7 lady executive is the cause of their separation.
Magdangal, who is also his daughter's talent manager, confirmed the breakup, which he said he learned on Dec. 26.
"I want to respect her silence. I am still waiting for her to give the reason but she has yet to elaborate," Magdangal said in a phone interview with the Inquirer on Sunday.
According to sources, the couple separated before the Christmas holidays. They said the still undetermined cause of the break-up was so severe that the singer-actress initiated the breakup and indicated there was no hope for any reconciliation.
On the rumor linking Muñoz to the unnamed GMA 7 lady executive, Magdangal said:
"We were shocked that something like that came out. I asked Jolina about the gossip. All she said was that: 'Basta Bebong and I talked about it na.'"
Magdangal said his daughter is handling the breakup very well. "She's back to work, singing and dancing on 'SOP.' We will wait for the right time for her to talk."
Magdangal and Muñoz met eight years ago. "But he went to the US soon after. They became a real couple when he came back three years ago," the elder Magdangal added.With Marinel R. Cruz
