It seems that long-time couple Jerome Ponce and Mika Reyes have broken up. Rumors of a possible split between the Kapamilya actor and the volleyball star have recently sprouted due to a now-viral Facebook post. On October 14, 2020, a fan page of Mika with over 500,000 followers posted a cryptic post suggesting that the long-time couple has parted ways.
The post in question uploaded photos of Mika with the caption, "With or without Jerome Ponce, she is still THE Mika Reyes whom people love and support for her swag and charm."
Aside from the breakup, the post also suggests that cheating was possibly a reason behind the split. "Cheaters are losers, remember that," the post says. Other fan pages of the volleyball player also posted similar updates. Fans have also noted that the two are no longer following each other on Instagram.
Jerome and Mika have been together for around four years already. Prior to dating each other, Jerome was in a relationship with actress Elisse Joson while Mika has dated Ateneo basketball star Kiefer Ravena.
They first met on the weekend variety show ASAP in 2017 after being introduced by common friends. Mika had a guest appearance on the show at that time. In an interview with Pep.ph in 2019, Jerome described his relationship with Mika as "very normal, sweet, loving, caring," despite coming from different backgrounds and working in different fields.
Jerome is an actor signed under Star Magic. He's appeared in Kapamilya shows like Be Careful With My Heart and The Good Son. He was also part of films like Hello, Love, Goodbye and Haunted Mansion.
Mika is a volleyball player who rose to fame for being one of the star players of her alma mater De La Salle University. She is currently playing for the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors in the Philippine SuperLiga.
