MANILA - Jodi Sta. Maria and Jolo Revilla have split, the actress confirmed to reporters Tuesday at the sidelines of a press conference for her upcoming film, "The Achy Breaky Hearts." 

Sta. Maria, 34, did not go into details about the breakup but said that she and Revilla, the vice governor of Cavite, remain friends. 

Rumors about their split first surfaced after Revilla accidentally shot himself on the chest back in February 2015 following the arrest of his father, Senator Bong Revilla. According to a report, Revilla and Sta. Maria had decided to call it quits six months earlier. 

The rumors, however, died down after the two refused to speak up about the issue, and Sta. Maria was seen with Revilla as he recovered from his self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

It also appeared that the two had ironed out their differences after they were spotted at a local cafe last June 10. 

Sta. Maria first confirmed her relationship with Revilla in late 2012. Prior to Revilla, Sta. Maria was also in a relationship with Pampi Lacson, with whom she has a son.
