On Tuesday, February 6, 2024, host Boy Abunda reported the news of Bea Alonzo and Dominic Roque's breakup on his show Fast Talk With Boy Abunda. "As we talk today, yes, hiwalay po si Dominic at tsaka si Bea. [...] Kung tama ang aking source, Bea ay isinauli na 'yung engagement ring," he revealed.
A day after their reported breakup, Dominic defended Bea from netizens criticizing her for being the reason behind their "failed" relationship.
Less than a week later, Bea and Dominic have broken their silence and released a joint statement detailing the end of their engagement on Instagram. Asking for privacy during this trying time, Bea and Dominic have disabled the comments section under this post, but also expressed their gratitude for netizens' understanding and support in their statement.
Here's the full transcript of Bea Alonzo and Dominic Roque's breakup statement:
"After much thought, consideration, and care, we have mutually decided to amicably end our engagement. It was not an easy decision. We wanted to have more time to carefully deliberate and pray about it, but there have been many speculations, questions, and insults."
"Unfortunately, some even confirmed our break-up without our consent, and some created ridiculous stories that had no basis and were utterly false, so we felt the need to share this announcement with great sadness, for our peace of mind and our families."
"Please understand that this is an extremely painful yet united decision, and we sincerely request for everyone to kindly spare us from more cruel and very hurtful words thrown on social media."
"We kindly request to give us the privacy we need as we navigate our future lives with respect, kindness, compassion, and dignity."
"Thank you for your understanding and support."
