Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wutzbach and professional race-car driver Marlon Stockinger have split after being in a relationship for almost three years. This news was confirmed by Rikka Infantado-Fernandez, the business manager of Pia.
In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Rikka shared through a text message last Thursday, December 5, that the two split up earlier, in September.
“Yes, it’s confirmed, and you can quote me on that,” she stated.
Pia’s business manager added that the former couple also had issues in the past that they managed to fix, “On and off naman na matagal na, but yung final was September pa.”
That’s why at the time when the former Miss Universe titleholder celebrated her 30th birthday in Bali, Indonesia, in the late part of September, Marlon was not seen with her as the two already parted ways.
It was also included in PEP.ph report that another source, who is close to Pia said that one of the reasons behind their breakup was because of Marlon being “jobless.” But the said source chose not to further share more details about this issue.
After their breakup announcement, the two have apparently unfollowed each other on Instagram. If you will check Pia’s Instagram feed, it no longer shows their photos together.
In a YouTube video posted last December 2017, the Filipino-German beauty queen admitted that she had a crush on Marlon Stockinger, and she also revealed that she’s the one who made the first move by liking the Instagram posts of the handsome race car driver.
She said: “I found my boyfriend on Instagram. I just started liking a few pictures first, just to kinda knock on the door, like let him know, ‘I’m here.’ I’ve always had a crush on this guy.”
Pia and Marlon’s relationship lasted for nearly three years. The two first met way back in 2016 and they officially became a couple on November 30 that year.
