The Kapuso actress and style icon Heart Evangelista recently uploaded a vlog to her YouTube channel in which she acknowledged having “been going through personal struggles,” but that she was optimistic about things getting better soon.
“But you know, at the end of the day, I’m still very grateful and as long as there’s life, there’s hope,” she implied.
In an update to her fans, Evangelista described how her life has been going and acknowledged that she is currently going through a difficult time as a result of rumors that her marriage to Chiz Escudero has broken up.
“I’ve always been such a happy person and I’ve always been somebody who just goes against the tides and just lets the waves crash on me. I’m not going to lie — I’ve been going through a lot of personal stuff in my mind,” the actress said.
“I’m not going to deny, I’ve been going through some personal struggles like I feel a lot of pressure in my life, and basically now, I’m really in a search of just being happy,” she disclosed further.
Evangelista declared that she is currently pursuing happiness because of the pressure and difficulties she is experiencing in her life.
“It’s about the simplest things in life that are very important and that really make a person happy — that’s where I’m at now. I feel like at the end of the day, it’s really your inner strength and you being independent about what you want to do in life and not relying on anyone that matters,” she added.
Netizens first noticed that the actress had changed her Instagram bio from “Love Marie Ongpauco Escudero” to “Love Marie” a few weeks prior to her vlog.
While others have observed that Evangelista has maintained the description on her Instagram profile that reads “wife,” her last name is still displayed on her Twitter account as Escudero.
The name change fueled separation rumors, but the senator has been quiet on social media during this time. His most recent Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts were made last month.
