In June 2019, we were all shocked to know that the MarNigo love team is no more. In her interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda to promote her MMK episode with McCoy De Leon, Maris gave a clear “yes” when the TWBA host asked her if Inigo Pascual broke her heart.

Three months after the interview, Maris went back on TWBA with Inigo by her side. Aside from inviting us to watch their upcoming film titled “I’m Ellenya L.”, the Maris and Inigo revealed what happened to their love team. According to them, it was in December 2018 when they both decided to sit down and talk about their off-screen relationship. Agreeing that they are not ready for anything serious between them, they both decided to end their romance.
Despite this, Maris and Inigo remained good friends. They had short chats online and through text messaging. And in March 2019, they started to meet face to face.
Maris and Inigo shared that they actually “never ignored” each other, but there are times they enjoyed time apart due to their busy work schedules. Maris is currently focusing on her acting and singing stints while Inigo is taking flight in his international career as a singer-songwriter.
When asked if it was possible for them to get back together as a couple in the future, Maris responded:
“Happy ako kung ano mang meron kami ngayon, but hindi talaga natin malalaman kung ano po ‘yong future.”
Inigo agreed with her, saying: “Yeah, you can’t tell. If it’s meant to be that way, it will happen.”

Meanwhile, when asked if he really broke Maris’ heart, Inigo said:
“It was not intentional. I was sad that we had to be that way. We’ve talked about it… It’s a situation I also didn’t want to be in. I didn’t want to have to break her heart and it was sad to have to go through it, but we went through it.”
Inigo expressed how sorry he was for what happened between him and Maris, but also shared how thankful and happy he is that no grudges occurred between them and that they are constantly getting along with each other really well.
