MANILA, Philippines -- Comedian and host Vic Sotto and actress Pauleen Luna have broken up, entertainment editor Ricky Lo reported on Monday.
In his column on The Philippine Star, Lo said Sotto and Luna have broken up or are into a “cooling-off” after going steady for only a few months.
“I knew that it wouldn’t last,” Luna's manager Lolit Solis told Lo.
"The age difference between them is too much,” Solis added.
According to Solis, Luna started her career as a contestant on the Little Miss Philippines segment of the noontime show "Eat Bulaga," which is hosted by Sotto.
"Vic is older than Pauleen’s father,” Solis told Lo, “at siempre, si Pauleen naman is a bit spoiled. Bata pa nga kasi, eh.”
Sotto is 57, while Luna is 23.
The veteran comedian never confirmed his reported relationship with his "Eat Bulaga" co-host.
Lo, however, said Luna "hinted" about their relationship.
It was Lo who also first broke the news last December that Sotto and Luna are "officially an item."
