 Celebrity couple Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano

MANILA, Philippines – Actress Sunshine Cruz is reportedly looking for a temporary home for her and her daughters following her recent marital troubles with husband, actor Cesar Montano.

In a report on the entertainment website Pep.ph, Cruz said she believes it would be best if she and Montano could have some space.

“Nag-uusap na kasi ang mga lawyers namin. Kaya hindi ko naman puwedeng idetalye ang mga kailangan naming gawin. Siguro pagod na akong ma-stress. It’s not doing me any good. So the best way siguro, talagang humiwalay na lang muna kami ng mga bata ng bahay. Ang focus ko kasi ngayon are my kids,” she said.

Last month, Cruz blew her top after discovering that a number of her gifts to Montano are now with starlet Krista Miller, who co-stars with her husband in an upcoming film.

Cruz turned to social networking site Instagram to confront Miller, whose posts on the same image-sharing service showed items allegedly given to her by Montano.

But according to Cruz, she was never really after the material things.

“Nag-usap naman kami. Kaya meron na ngang mga abugado. Oo, sinuyo naman niya ako. Pero hindi naman materyal na bagay ang habol ko, tita. Kaya kong bilhin lahat 'yun,” she said.

“This is not the first time. Alam naman nating lahat ‘yan. Hindi ko alam what will happen next. But for the now, that is what I want to do,” Cruz added.

For now, Cruz said she just wants to focus on her kids and go back to work again to divert her attention.

“Gusto ko na uli magtrabaho. Gusto ko nang makampante ang utak ko. I just want to take care of my kids. Siguro nga, space yung kailangan namin from each other at this point,” she said.

On Tuesday, Montano admitted that he and Cruz are experiencing turbulence in their marriage but vowed to do everything in his power to save his family.

“May problema to be quite honest. Hindi totoong walang problema. Pero lahat naman talaga ng marriage imperfect, like tao. Only God is perfect, isa lang ang perfect sa mundo. Lahat naman nagkakaroon ng problema,” he said.

In 2008, Cruz planned to file for the annulment of their marriage after the actor was romantically linked to Brazilian model Mariana del Rio.

The couple eventually reconciled, with Cruz saying she was willing to give their marriage another try.
