MANILA, Philippines – Celebrity doctor Vicki Belo confirmed that her split with boyfriend Hayden Kho was because of actress Nancy Castiglione.

In a statement furnished to Ricky Lo, which appeared in The Philippine Star on Tuesday, Belo said, “It is over – I hope.”

Last Friday, Belo posted on Twitter that Kho can now openly date Castiglione.

“nancycastilogne you can now openly date @haydenjr . You have my blessings. Hope you'll both be happy,” Belo said.

Rumors have circulated that Kho was allegedly spotted kissing Castiglione at a bar in Taguig.

In her statement, Belo said she believes the rumors are true.

“I am letting him go so that they don’t have to be ‘hiding-hiding’ anymore. She doesn’t have to blame anybody. This was bound to happen because he is young,” the doctor said in the statement.

“Yes, we were in love but I am not ilusyonada to think it will be for life given the age gap between us. I don’t need to make a longer statement. I just want people to stop picking on him. He was so good to me and made me so happy,” she said. “Sometimes, relationships just don’t work out. It’s sad but there’s no one to blame.”

Belo arrived in Los Angeles, California on Monday. She said on Twitter that she was met at the airport by her son, filmmaker Quark Henares, with “beautiful roses and a big hug.”

“I love the way my children know how to love me and nurture me,” she said.

On Tumblr, Henares said he received “some stuff” that Kho had ordered online, including a Canon 50 mm lens.

Belo told him that was supposed to be her gift to Kho and just gave the lens to her son.

Meanwhile, netizens seem to agree that Belo made the right decision to split up with Kho.

“u realy made a ryt decision na hiwalayan si hayden,” said landmarkee.

“Naku dok, magising kn, niloko k n nung una, magpapaloko k n nman b? Its a vicious cycle,” advised BerwynGarcia14.
