The speculations came when a blind item alluded to an actress separating from her non-showbiz husband. The third-party was allegedly close to the actress. Fueling the rumors is that the couple has already stopped posting photos and updates about them on social media. The netizens were quick to point out that it could be Angel and Neil with Maxene.
Further adding fuel to the fire is the reaction of Cristy Fermin on her YouTube show, Showbiz Now Na! According to her, it’s quite uncommon for the couple not to post about each other. Their last update on Instagram was in August while they were vacationing in Spain.
“Di naman nagtatagal ng ganun si Neil Arce at Angel Locsin ng absence sa social media,” Cristy commented.
According to the host, the rumors started when Neil was promoting a concert on social media and netizens were flooding his comment section asking for the whereabouts of Angel. Neil kept mum and didn’t reply to any of those inquiries.
They also pointed out how uncommon it was that Angel was also absent in his usual humanitarian and charitable acts when the recent typhoon Paeng happened. “Hinahanap siya, ilang bagyo na ang nakaraan apat o lima,” Cristy added.
The veteran entertainment columnist shared some of her speculations on the issue. First, it may be true that Angel is now pregnant and is planning to have a surprise announcement. Second, maybe Angel has focused on her weight loss and health. The third speculation is that maybe her relationship with Neil is having problems. There are also rumors that Angel is having trouble getting pregnant.
But Cristy keeps her faith on the couple by saying, “Ako malakas ang duda ko together pa rin sila.”
On Maxene’s Facebook, she reacted that she was at peace and nothing bothers or negativity bothers her.
On Facebook, a photo of her and Neil taken in Spain was posted by Team Angel PH. An earlier post showed Neil having a haircut with Angel, they had a cryptic post saying, “Kwentong Barbero x Gupitan moment.” But netizens were eager to know if the video was a recent one.
For now, still no updates on Angel and Neil’s Instagram accounts regarding the issue.
