MANILA — Only a month before their separation, former couple Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford were having a “perfect day.”
The 25-year-old singer-actress shared the day through a June 20 post on image-sharing service Instagram, where she has over 335,000 followers.
The couple of almost five years are seen posing with Gil’s pet dog in the said photo, which now has over 14,000 likes.
Its caption: “Today was absolutely perfect […] got to hangout with my cousin and nephews, squeezed in a workout, got mah nails deeed, baked a cake, and had dinner by Chef Humstermeier with the fam. Plus Charlie cuddles to end the night. Life is good”
Earlier in May, on the occasion of Crawford’s 31st birthday, Gil posted a collage of photos of the “It’s Showtime” co-host, with the caption, “Happiest Birthday to my best friend, my happy thought, my dream come true @billyjoecrawford.”
“You are a blessing to everyone around you. I love you! PS These photos still make me swoon every time I see them #TheHumstermeier,” the caption said.
On Thursday, a statement released by ALV Talent Circuit, which manages the careers of the former couple, confirmed that the two have “mutually agreed to end their relationship.”
Maintaining that there was no third party in the relationship, the statement issued by talent manager Arnold Vegafria added that “we are refraining [from] issuing any other facts or statements related to the issue at this critical juncture.”
While Gil has yet to speak on the matter, Crawford on Friday said he will “answer everything next time.”
