A day after Sol Mercado bagged his first championship trophy with Barangay Ginebra, his girlfriend Denise Laurel revealed on Instagram that they’ve called off their long engagement.
What’s more, according to Denise’s Thursday post, is that they are now just friends.
"I just want to ask all of you for prayers right now and support. From now on Sol and I are just friends. I am very happy for him! But please don't tag me first on anything that has to do with him. We both tried our best,” she wrote.
She also clarified that Sol didn’t cheat on her.
"Please respect Sol. He did not cheat on me. He didn't do anything wrong. We [have] both been trying for a while now. He's amazing and brought so much into my life. God has something's planned for us both."
Her posts were soon deleted and Denise soon pointed out that her actions were done in haste and it was very selfish of since her “timing is horrible.”
“I apologize I didn’t think this through on posting I just wanted to not hear about him at this time… People are bothering Sol now and he really didn’t do anything at all!!! It’s sad but God has different paths for us… We have been friends trying for awhile… I didn’t think before posting that it would rain on his hard earned championship and he deserves all the best please!! I apologize to Sol and his family.”
