Earlier this month, actress Erich Gonzales confirmed that she had broken up with model-actor Daniel Matsunaga, her boyfriend of more than two years. She said that she and her Be My Lady co-star were no longer on speaking terms.
Because Erich didn't elaborate on what caused her split from Daniel, there have been speculations. Was there a third party? One rumor claims that the split had something to do with "money issues." This caused Vanessa, Daniel's sister, to post a statement on Erich's Instagram page asking Erich to put an end to the talk.
Then, the next thing we knew, Erich and Daniel were spotted dining together at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2 while waiting for their flight to California, where they are expected to appear in a series of shows.
In California, the pair have continued to present a friendly front to fans. On Saturday, February 18, Star Magic Philippines posted an Instagram photo of Erich and Daniel with singer Sheryn Regis, with an announcement that their first show will be at Cache Creek in Northern California's Capay Valley.
Fans of the couple are now hoping that there will be a "second chance" for the relationship, especially since there's also another IG photo posted by Star Magic Philippines that shows Daniel giving Erich a side hug.
What does the side hug mean, really? Check out the video below to study the couple's body language.
Are we watching a genuine reconciliation-in-progress or damage control success?
