Maris Racal finally broke her silence to address fans' queries as to why she is no longer visible on social media with Inigo Pascual. The two stars were collectively known as MarNigo.
In an interview at the media launch of her new single "Abot Langit," Maris admitted that she and Inigo already have different roads to take. "May changes na lang over one year kasi di ba this time last year very love team, daming ganap together. Ngayon kasi may iba iba kaming gusto," she stated.
When asked if what is her message to MarNigo fans now that they have gone separate ways, Maris replied, "Masasabi ko na lang diyan sana 'yung nagsu-support sa amin, support niyo na lang kung ano 'yung ilalabas namin kasi kung magiging masyadong invested sila about relationship, you know, people change and maraming natural changes na nangyayari so dapat kailangan nakaka-keep up ka sa ganyan. Don't get stuck sa idea na ganyan," she stated.
The actress-singer also stressed that they always made it to their fans even way back then that they were not in a relationship. "Sinabi naman namin ni Inigo na hindi naman kami. Ngayon lang talaga siguro ayaw lang namin na sobrang visible us together as a love team kasi may tinatahak din kami na iba-ibang gusto. Siya music, international and then ako acting and then writing so very iba. So ayaw lang namin na sobrang 'yung tao sa paligid namin hindi mapaghiwalay 'yung idea for us together kasi mahihirapan din kami. How will we grow?" she said.
