MANILA - Zsa Zsa Padilla and Conrad Onglao are back together.
Five months after calling off their engagement, the two have reconciled, entertainment editor Ricky Lo wrote in his column in the Philippine Star published Wednesday.
Padilla, as quoted by Lo, refused to reveal other details, explaining that she prefers to keep things "private."
She added that she wants her and Onglao's second chance at their relationship to last "forever."
Padilla and Onglao were a couple for more than two years before splitting up.
Prior to Onglao, Padilla was the long-time partner of the late comedian Dolphy.
Onglao, on the other hand, was previously married to interior designer Ivy Almario, with whom he has two sons. They were divorced in the United States and obtained legal separation, and church annulment in the Philippines.
Karylle, the daughter of Padilla, told reporters in May that her mother and Onglao decided to call it quits. Lo, in a previous report, attempted to shed light on the break up and learned that it may have been caused by Onglao's attitude towards celebrities and showbiz in general.
One of Lo's sources claimed that Padilla might have gotten "fed up" with Onglao's "hurtful" words aimed at those working at the entertainment industry. The source added that Padilla might have been surprised about Onglao's attitude given how "gentle" Dolphy was.
In a statement released weeks after the news broke, Onglao said that he loves and respects Padilla, and expressed hopes for a reconciliation. He went on to say that Padilla is the "best thing" that has ever happened to him.
At the time, Padilla said that she was already in the process of "healing," with the support of her family and friends.
