Singer and stage actress Karylle and actor Dingdong Dantes finally broke their silence and confirmed that they have broken up.

"It's over!" Karryle told Ricky Lo in his entertainment column "Funfare" of Philippine Star, confirming the reported fallout of her relationship with Dantes that has been circulating in tabloids and entertainment shows for several days

"Yes, break na kami," said Dantes, confirming the rumored breakup.

"It was the result of a long process," said Dantes. "Basta magkaiba ang priorities namin we did try hard to iron things out and save our relationship but..."

Beyond that, the ex-sweethearts would say nothing more.

When asked if there's a third party involved, Dantes said there isn't -- not even actress Marian Rivera whose name is being dragged as one of the causes of the breakup.

Dantes explained that he doesn't want his breakup to be used as a promo for his upcoming movie with Rivera.

"Ever since we started going steady, Karylle and I tried to draw a line between our careers and our private lives," Dantes added.

The ex-sweethearts’ love story lasted for three years.
