Daiana Menezes admits she fell out of love.
Daiana Menezes didn’t hesitate when she confirmed with PEP.ph that she and her husband former Cagayan de Oro Rep. Jose Benjamin “Benjo” Benaldo already separated since March 2015.
“Halos two years na. Kasi hindi naman ako nagsalita tungkol dun, kasi for me bad publicity kapag parating lovelife ang pinag-uusapan. So nung nag-start ako sa Deal Or No Deal last year March 2015, dun kami naghiwalay na,” she said.
She shared that the reason why she decided to leave him is that she feels he was ‘emotionally unstable.’ Daiana already filed for a divorce in the US.
“I filed it na, and then I also filed a temporary protection order and a restraining order dahil kailangan ko 'yan.”
Benjo and Daiana got married in Las Vegas last 2012. Daiana admitted that the separation was difficult at first.
“It was [difficult] at first, and then kasi di ba, everybody knows naman from what… kung ano’ng nangyari sa amin in the past controversies. But I wish him well and I hope mag-move on na rin siya, and then magiging peaceful, and then so far okay naman.”
In their 3 years of marriage, she revealed the worst thing she heard from Benjo was she remained beside him because of his money.
“Hindi naman kasi iyan ang rason dahil nag-stay naman ako sa kanya kahit bankrupt na bankrupt na siya,” she explained.
“Talagang I fell out of love. Decision ko talaga iyon. Hindi ko na kayang mag-take ng not emotional stable na tao, na harapin ko siya araw-araw and then iisipin ko na iyan ang makikita ko for the rest of my life,” she added.
When asked if there was any physical violence between them, she said,” Ayoko na lang magsalita, pero di ba… iyon na iyon, parang nangyari din yun.”
