HAPPY COUPLE. Sen. Francis Escudero and wife Heart Evangelista FRANCIS ESCUDERO
Is Heart Evangelista is going to live in Paris?
The poser was raised by many as rumors are circulating in Manila that the comely actress and businesswoman has reportedly broken up with husband Sen. Francis Chiz Escudero and is going to be based in France and will be pursuing a career in fashion there.
Before the reports circulated, the actress has been going back and forth between the Philippines and Europe for her career as artist, brand ambassador and fashion influencer. She also frequents the United States, where she likewise models and attends fashion shows.
But amid all the breakup rumors, Senator Escudero and Heart are still living together under one roof, according to sources close to the celebrity couple.
“They are still living together under one roof,” sources said.
Mrs. Cecile Ongpauco, Heart’s mother, meanwhile, said she is praying for her daughter and Chiz.
“It’s their private life so I am just praying for them. I know they will be OK! I’ve known Chiz to be a mature and grounded person that’s why I am happy for my daughter,” Ongpauco said.
In her interviews for her last series, “I Left My Heart in Sorsogon,” Heart mentioned that it might be her last soap, as she is having a hard time managing her time, wrote respected entertainment columnist Ethel Ramos.
With the current development in her life, does this mean it is good-bye acting for Heart? the columnist asked.
Will this mean she is leaving her husband, Senator Chiz Escudero who has just returned to the Senate after his May 9 elections win as an independent candidate?
As a public servant, Senator Chiz can’t just leave the country and accompany Heart abroad, according to the columnist. She asked: What happens to the couple now? How about their plans to have a baby?
As rumors spread that Heart is also being linked to somebody in France, she is expected to clarify things soon as both Heart and the senator from Sorsogon have been mum on their reported breakup.
“ We wonder if Senator Chiz, who has always been very approachable to the press, will decide to break his silence and address the issues about his personal life,” the columnist wrote..
Heart and Senator Chiz tied the knot on February 15, 2015 at the Balesin Island Club in Quezon Province.
Senator Chiz was previously married to Christine Flores, with whom he had twins.
Heart, meanwhile, in an interview with L’Officiel PH as part of being the cover girl of its September issue, shared the said cover photo on Instagram and used that particular news in her caption.
“In this exclusive interview with L’Officiel, read about how she’s taking everything in – from the highs and the lows – as she makes one crucial step after another to finally build the home she had always dreamed of in Paris. Read it in the September issue via link in bio,” the caption stated.
In the same post, Heart also expressed gratitude to her dedicated team for enabling her to work with the magazine.
Rumours of marital issues sparked last month, when it was revealed that Heart had dropped her married name from her social media accounts. She then shared in her vlog that she is going through a rough patch in her life.
“I am not going to deny that I have been going through personal struggles. I feel a lot of pressure in my life. Basically now, I am really in a search for just being happy,” she said.
