It’s over: Nikki and Billy end relationship

(UPDATE 2) The entertainment industry woke up to heartbreaking news on Thursday morning, July 25 as another high-profile breakup struck showbiz—this time between power couple Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford.

In a statement sent  to Yahoo! Philippines OMG!, ALV Talent Circuit confirmed that their talents "have indeed mutually agreed to end their relationship."

"On behalf of our artists, Billy Crawford and Nikki Gil, we are greatly saddened by their admission that they have indeed mutually agreed to end their relationship of more than four years. With due respect to their privacy, we are refraining from issuing any other facts or statements related to the issue at this critical juncture."

Their relationship lasted for almost five years, considerably one of the longest in the industry where relationships have the shortest turnover.

The couple would've celebrated their fifth anniversary next month.

Meanwhile, in their home studio ABS-CBN, an insider familiar to the network dealings told OMG! that they’re still in shock after learning about the news, especially since they know the couple to be “very much in love with each other.”

The said Kapamilya insider said everyone was just waiting for what could be a lovely wedding, since both parties have been very vocal about their plans to own a house and eventually settle down.

It is not immediately known why the two have decided to end their relationship.

Two days prior to the confirmation that the two have indeed parted ways, a noticeably sad Nikki took to Instagram to show where her source of strength is coming from these days.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician.
