Before reports came out about Daniel Matsunaga and Erich Gonzales splitting, Daniel disclosed to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that they would start filming their movie this month.
In an interview last January 21, the Brazilian-Japanese model-actor said, “We have a movie very soon.
“Next month we'll start shooting already.
“It's a rom-com. Mayroon ng title, but I don't think I can't say it yet.”
When asked about the movie's plot, Daniel told PEP, “Maybe in two weeks, I'll tell you guys everything.”
On January 31, Thursday night, PEP reported on Daniel's rumored breakup with Erich.
Fans of the DanRich couple asked Daniel for the real score when they noticed that Erich had deleted all their pictures together on her Instagram account. Erich's account was also set to private.
Daniel responded through the comments section of his Instagram account, “Guys I would like to ask a favor pls... we are talking and going through some personal things... all we need is your support and love... not trash talking... we love you all with no limit and we just need some respect and time. thank you. God bless you guys.”
This came as a surprise because, at the PEP interview just two weeks back, Daniel had said his romantic relationship with Erich became stronger after they worked together in the defunct TV series Be My Lady.
He said back then, “We spent a lot of time together, more than one year of taping for that show. It was a blessing for the two of us.
“We got so much stronger. You know, spending time with each other, that's the most precious thing ever.”
