It seems like love’s not the only thing making the world go around. According to Daniel Matsunaga’s sister Vanessa, the real reason why Erich and Daniel broke up was because of money that the couple has specifically won in the ‘Minute to Win It’ Last Duo Standing edition.
A few days before the couple appeared on the game show, Erich wiped out all traces of her boyfriend Daniel in her Instagram account. Fans and followers of the actress were shocked—-after all, it was the platform that the couple has been using in declaring their love for each other.
It doesn’t help that Daniel has replied to one of the followers with a vague statement: “Guys I would like to ask favor pls… we are talking and going through some personal things… all we need is your support and love.”
However, Erich said the opposite when she addressed interviewers on February 8 and said that she and Daniel are not even speaking to each other. “It’s not true that we are talking. Hindi po kami magkaibigan,” she asserted.
Then talk of money being the cause of the couple’s split surfaced online, particularly back to the game show money that they’ve won recently. Erich decided not to speak on the issue but Vanessa, Daniel’s sister, has something else to say.
Here is what she wrote on her Instagram account:
“Hi Erika, how are you? I’m really sorry to send you this message. Daniel asked our family, friends, and fans to keep quiet and not fight back or even reply to any comments, but the truth is I can’t keep quiet when people are invading my privacy, asking us if we owe you money and saying that you are spending on us! I can’t believe this is even happening.”
“How can people even speculate about this, right? I know you answered the interview [to] the best of your ability, I understand it’s hard to answer too many questions, but I honestly wish you had addressed the money issue.”
“You guys don’t owe an explanation to anyone and I know both of you are hurting and want privacy right now. Please look back at the good times. Remember, you were with us for two years, you were included in every family plan, trips, weddings.”
“[We] took care of you and your family and took in consideration your preferences and watched over you. I’m not here to measure what we did for each other because this is love, and it comes with it naturally.”
“All I’m saying is [that] I’m very sad to see people defaming not only you and my brother, but also my mom and family. You know my mom, and she definitely doesn’t deserve this. As a matter of fact, we are still defending you from all the hate as much as we can.”
“We all love you to the best of our abilities and with all our hearts. It’s your choice to unfollow us, delete your photos—some people move on that way. ‘Out of sight out of mind.’ Others would like to treasure the memories, whatever works best, right? Whatever it is we respect that and chose to give you your privacy.”
“[So] please forgive me if you are receiving this message here, I would’ve sent this to your inbox but now my messages get to you as a spam…anyways, I’m asking you to please address this issue, people are calling us users, but you know best, and you know the truth.”
She ended with, “I’m counting on your integrity, dignity, and your love for our Lord Jesus. Love you! Isabella misses you! We will always be here for you.”
Surprisingly, when Vanessa’s comment was posted, Erich deactivated her comments section. Shocking! What do you think about the couple’s split? Is Vanessa really telling the truth? Give us your comments below!
