Some couples are just not meant to be. But, as Tennyson once said in his poems, it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
When McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson joined Pinoy Big Brother, no one had expected that they would leave as McLisse. This was followed by roles on primetime series The Good Son as Obet and Sabina. They then closed out the year with parts in the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) “Ang Panday.” Fans expected these projects to only be the beginning of their journey together. So, you can imagine how hard it must have been to see that their love team has already reached its conclusion.
Early 2018, there were already rumors of their split making rounds on the internet. During interviews they admitted to going through a rough patch, but there were still some moments that gave their supporters hope. McCoy and Elisse attended the ABS-CBN Ball 2018 together. For the first time, their tandem was also set to lead a movie, “Sakaling Maging Tayo.” Unfortuantely, instead of being the happy couple Kapamilyas thought they would be, they sit next to each other as friends.
On Magandang Buhay, McCoy explained that they were young. Life had plenty of experiences waiting for them which is why it never became serious enough to have a label. He continued to talk until Elisse decided to cut in and confess her side, “Akala ko kasi may label, ako lang pala.” McCoy was obviously caught off guard by this, but he eventually admitted that they did have something, “Sige ito na, naging on and off kami.”
So, where did it all go wrong for them to call it quits for good? She tried to recount what happened when they last spoke but was not sure herself. “Actually, hindi ko alam ‘yung nangyari, parang ganoon,” Elisse revealed. Whatever was between them had just ended. On the flip side, they are on good terms. More importantly, they can be open about their relationship now and still have the support of their fans. So, whatever their status is now or whoever they meet in the future, Kapamilyas can continue to show them lots of love as individual actors!
