MANILA -- Lack of respect? Money? They never did clarify the reason for their split last year. 

On Tuesday, talk show "Tonight with Boy Abunda" tried to clear the rumors that floated around after Jimuel Pacquiao and Heaven Peralejo broke up by asking the former about what really happened. 

According Manny Pacquiao's son, his breakup with Peralejo was "really tough." 

"Kasi po parang may galit kasi doon sa first time, and parang hindi po maayos iyong naging breakup," he admitted. 

He shared that they got back together after regretting the decisions they made when they fought, but ultimately decided that they're not for one another. "The second time around, it was a peaceful breakup." 

Jimuel refrained from the finer details, but pointed out that they managed to maintain a good relationship. "Sometimes we have shows outside and wala naman kaming problema sa isa't-isa," he said. 

It was early in the second half of last year when rumors began about their breakup. In confirming it, Peralejo said: "Sabi nga ni mommy, 'Don’t let anyone ever make you feel that you are not enough, because you are.' 'Pag nangyari 'yun, it's time to let it go."

The two first revealed that they were a couple in March last year, and Jimuel had to immediately bat away criticisms that Peralejo was motivated by money when she entered the relationship.
