Gaby Espino confirms split from Jencarlos Canela!

We hate to break the bad news to all of you romantics out there, but Gaby Espino and Jencarlos Canela break-up rumors have officially been confirmed. The 36-year-old Venezuelan actress broke the news of her separation on her Twitter account about two hours ago. The couple, who had met on the set of their hit telenovela Más Sabe el Diablo back in 2009, has a 2-year-old son, Nickolas. They stirred up chismes of a split after Espino failed to give a shout-out to Canela during her acceptance speech at Premios Tu Mundo. Now, Espino reveals the truth behind their split.

While some gossip outlets claim that Espino has been getting cozy with her Santa Diabla co-star, Aarón Díaz, no news of the rumored new romance has been confirmed. The mother of two decided to take to her Twitter page to confirm the separation news and posted:

To all of the media and the general public: Because I have immense love for our fans across the world, I wanted to inform you that we came towards a mutual agreement to end our emotional relationship a while ago. We ended things respectfully and on the best of terms out of respect for our family. It is because of our love for them that we ask the media and fans to please support us and report this news in a respectful manner since this is a chapter in our lives that is closing without personal attacks and with the best of intentions. We are not separating because when you have a family together, that word doesn't exist. We are simply deciding to be the best of friends and move forward with our lives.

The break-up news is a complete shocker for me since Espino and Canela were super private about their love. Of course, I can't help but wonder what really went on here. Perhaps their age difference--since she is 10 years his senior--could have played a big part in the demise of their relationship.That, or perhaps the cheating rumors are actually true. 

On a positive note, it sounds like they're keeping their relationship issues under wraps and deciding to have a clean public break-up for the sake of their family. That is more than Nick Cannon was able to do for Mariah Carey

We wish these two the best!
