Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon confirmed in a TV show that she and her boyfriend for one year have broken up.
In an episode of "Kris TV," Janine said she decided to break up with boyfriend Jaypee Santos.
"Actually honestly ngayon we are not in good terms. Siguro may nangyari lang na hindi ko ini-expect na mangyayari," the 23-year-old beauty queen said, as posted in ABS-CBN News. "Honestly po kasi break talaga kami ngayon."
Janine and Jaypee's breakup was reportedly because of The Script lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue. The Irish pop-rank band recently performed at the Araneta Coliseum.
Janine said she met Danny during the band's meet and greet.
"Kasi hindi ba sa Araneta kapag may meet and greet, since kilala ko ang staff ng Araneta sabi ko sa kanila sobra akong fan ng The Script pwede bang ma-meet ko. So na meet niya ako, nandoon siya si (Jaypee) pinakilala ko nga siya, kasi tinanong niya 'do you have a boyfriend?' Sabi ko 'yeah that's my boyfriend.' Tapos yon sabi niya 'follow me on Twitter and I will follow you back' tapos nag-direct message siya. Oo na (galit) siya (si Jaypee) kasi sabi niya kung ayaw mo talaga sa taong yan hindi mo siya kokontakin," she said.
The couple eventually argued over the incident and Janine decided to break up with him. "Kasi nga ayaw ko naman na may iba akong iniisip. Sabi ko lang sa kanya siguro I need some time to think talaga," she said.
"Akala ko kasi si Danny na baka that night lang o nagandahan lang and all pero feeling ko siya din ay gusto niyang makilala ako," she added.
Janine however said that she and Danny are not in a relationship, but admits the singer frequently sends him text messages after they met.
