MANILA, Philippines -- Sunshine Cruz is "moving on" after discovering that a number of her gifts to husband Cesar Montano are now in the hands of a woman who co-stars with him in an upcoming film.

The 35-year-old actress turned to social networking site Instagram to confront a certain Krista Miller, whose recent posts on the same image-sharing service show items allegedly given to her by Montano.
Cruz and Montano were married in 2000, and have three daughters.
Miller will portray Marita Zaragoza in a film directed by and starring Montano, "The Turning Cradle: The Untold Story of Alfredo Lim".
In one post on Instagram, which has since been deleted, Cruz said she "[has] been really quiet" on Montano's alleged ties with MIller.
"But when kids are affected, unfair na 'yun. It is actually them who told me about this. They are hurt. I'm moving on, with my children. God bless you both for doing this to us," she said.
On microblogging site Twitter, Cruz directly addressed Miller via a "mention," telling her to "have the decency to return the iPhone 5. I'm sure you can do better that that."

In a series of posts on Instagram, which have also been deleted, Miller shared photos of an Abercombie and Fitch shirt for men, a pack of chocolates and an iPhone 5.
Referring to the images, Cruz said, also via Instagram: "I have been quiet. Weeks of texting and sending photos. I was really quiet, but don't you know the meaning of being discreet?"
"I bought that shirt, and it is a guy's shirt for heaven's sake! The chocolate is from my [sister]-in-law and that is my iPhone 5. [Hindi] mo na dapat pinagmalaki sa social networking," she said.
Cruz also responded to another photo post of Miller, which has the caption, "I hope one day, I'll be your first priority."
The actress said, mentioning Miller's account, "You might soon be his first priority. Pagdasal mo."
As of posting, only Cruz's "tweet" asking Miller to return the phone is accessible.
When asked for comment on the issue by ABS-CBN News, Montano's manager Shirley Pizarro, said, "We just appeal to our friends from the press to give Cesar and Sunshine their understanding and prayers so they can resolve whatever differences they may have at this time."
Miller has yet to respond to ABS-CBN News' request for comment on the issue.
