After actress Sunshine Dizon revealed on her Instagram account that her husband of six years has cheated on her, Timothy Tan confirmed through a statement sent to ABS-CBN News’ Mario Dumaual that they’re now separated.
Timothy admitted that they are having marital problems and for him, it is better if their marriage would get annulled. He also said he would still provide the needs of his children with Sunshine, Anton and Doreen.
"Since the start of the year, our marriage has underwent numerous challenges and as with any relationship, we have truly tried our best to resolve certain issues. However, we have both concluded that an annulment is warranted," he said.
"I would also like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to the people & their families who were involved, directly or indirectly, as a result of our marital problems. I would also like to request for privacy as we both go through this challenging time in our lives," he added.
After Timothy’s statement, Sunshine aired her side of story through a long post on her Instagram. She first described her husband as her best friend and ‘partner in everything.’
“My nightmares began exactly June of last year,” she revealed.
She added, “I've given you several chances, I swallowed everything for the sake of Doreen and Anton, I tried my best and gave my all. You have disregarded your responsibilities and turned into a monster, all the lies and deception.”
Sunshine stressed that she was the one working hard for their family and he ‘just sat there and did nothing.’
“You have shamed your family, you have shamed your children. You will get what you deserve. If you really have balls face the consequences of your actions,” she wrote.
“You ruined two families. You ruined the lives of our children.
“For almost a year you had the audacity to live with that woman in the same building were your own children lives. You took my hard earned money.
“I have refused to give interviews out of respect for your family but instead you go ahead and do it on your own.”
In the end, Sunshine said she will not grant Timothy’s request for an annulment.
“There is no forgiveness for what you did. No annulment for you. I will seek justice. I will see you both in court.”
