MANILA, Philippines – Actress Jodi Sta. Maria has kept silent on the state of her marriage with Panfilo “Pampi” Lacson Jr.

A Star Magic statement on Tuesday said it is respecting Sta. Maria’s decision not to speak about the matter.

"We respect Jodi's decision not to comment on her marital issues. We hope that the public understand as Jodi and Pampi care for the welfare of their son. Thank you," the statement reads.

Star Magic is the management arm of ABS-CBN that handles Sta. Maria’s career.

On Sunday, Lacson broke his silence about the state of their marriage on TV5’s entertainment show “Paparazzi.”

Lacson confirmed in the interview that his marital relationship with Sta. Maria has been on the rocks. He revealed that they have been estranged for 7 months now.

He, however, stressed that he never laid a hand on his wife. He also said that they are trying their best as a couple to iron things out for the sake of their son, Thirdy.

Lacson and Sta. Maria tied the knot in Las Vegas in 2005.

Late last year, reports surfaced claiming the 2 have already separated. The couple, however, did not comment on the issue.
