Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and professional car racer Marlon Stockinger have called it quits after three years of an on-and-off relationship. Pia’s manager Rikka Infantado-Fernandez confirmed that the couple decided to finally part ways this September 2019, right before Pia has celebrated her 30th birthday in Bali, Indonesia.
Fernandez confirmed the breakup in a text message to PEP and said: “Yes, it’s confirmed and you can quote me on that. On and off naman na matagal na, but yung final was September pa.”
One of the reasons for the breakup was allegedly due to Marlon being jobless. Pia and Marlon have yet to release any statements. Pia deleted all her photos with her former boyfriend, while Marlon’s last uploaded photo with Pia was on May 29, 2019.
Meanwhile, in a statement sent to ABS-CBN News, Pia confirmed that she and race car driver Marlon Stockinger have parted ways.
“It’s true that Marlon and I are no longer together. I wish him and his family well, and out of respect for them, let me make it clear – Marlon and his family never depended on me financially. This will be my only statement on the matter. Thank you for your support,” the statement read.
Pia and Marlon’s relationship started when the Filipino-German actress liked the latter’s post on Instagram. They eventually got to know each other.
Last June 19, Pia admitted that she was not yet ready to settle down with Marlon, as they both have many things they want to achieve. On the other hand, Marlon has labeled Pia as “wife-material,”
He said: “I think we’re just gonna focus on our careers, support each other. And you know, somewhere down the road, that might come along.
