Rumors about Barbie Imperial and Diego Loyzaga's relationship being on the rocks have been going on since late 2021, and have since been squashed by the couple. They even celebrated their anniversary last December with back-to-back surprises.

However, things suddenly took a turn when the actor was spotted going on a solo trip this January. Diego flew to the United States and explored New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC all by himself, which left the fans wondering if he had broken up with Barbie.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Diego explained the reason for not bringing his girlfriend with him to the US.
"I came here all of a sudden and it wasn’t planned,” said Diego. "I don’t think Barbie has a new passport. I don’t think even if she wanted to come here, she couldn’t have come here. She needs a visa to come here.”
The actor, however, didn't confirm nor deny the breakup news.
Showbiz columnist Ogie Diaz, meanwhile, mentioned on his latest vlog that a source told him the couple has already called it quits.
In an article by PUSH published on January 26, Ogie said that the two have reportedly been trying to fix their relationship but eventually decided to part ways.
"Ang nabalitaan natin, nag-away nga itong si Barbie at si Diego. Tapos ang sabi, mamili lang daw si Diego. 'Itutuloy pa ba natin 'to or hiwalay na?' Sabing ganun. Eh parang nanalo ata 'yung hiwalay na," Ogie shared.
"'Yun 'yung nakarating sa akin ha."
While nothing is confirmed yet, Ogie wishes for the two to save their relationship.
"Sana hindi pa sila naghiwalay. Sana kung may problema sila, maayos naman 'yan. 'Yun naman ang ating hino-hope. Kasi lalo na, grabe 'yung kanilang pronouncement talaga, na they love each other, kung gaano kalalim [ang pagmamahal nila sa] isa't isa," Ogie added.
