Beloved singer-songwriter couple Moira Dela Torre and Jason Marvin Hernandez have announced their split, with the latter admitting to being unfaithful in the marriage. On May 31, Hernandez shared a joint statement via Facebook, revealing that he and Dela Torre, who participated in The Voice’s Filipino spin-off, were ending their three-year marriage. “It is with a heavy heart that after three years of marriage we announce that we are separating,” the statement said. “Our love and respect for one another remain. We ask for privacy at this difficult time.”
Hernandez didn’t stop there, however. In the caption to his post, the singer admitted cheating on his wife. “This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. But since you’ve been with us since the beginning, it’s only right that you hear this directly from me,” Hernandez wrote. “3 years ago I married my best friend with the intention of spending the rest of my life with her. Although my love for her has always been genuine, a few months ago I confessed to Moira that I had been unfaithful to her during our time in marriage. I believe that she deserves to know the truth instead of continuing down a “peaceful” but dishonest path. I take full responsibility and do my best to get better.
“From the bottom of my heart I’m sorry for everyone I’ve hurt. Especially Moi.”
Dela Torre, who is a judge for Idol Philippines, made a solo statement of her own via Instagram a few days later. (She had also deleted her social media profile from content with Hernandez in early 2022, as reported by Philstar.com.) In an effort to shut down unspecified online rumors, she made it clear that the entire infidelity in the relationship on her husband lay end.
“For those of you who know my story, you can imagine the long road of grief and healing that lies ahead,” Dela Torre wrote. “The revelations of things that have happened over the last two years have been difficult, painful and heartbreaking to process. Despite the pain I’m experiencing, let me get this straight. Although our marriage wasn’t perfect, I stayed true to my vows and never cheated on Jason.”
Dela Torre added, “I don’t know what the future holds but hope continues to be the song I sing never let me down.”
