MANILA, Philippines -- After only six months, actress Heart Evangelista hinted that she had already broken up with boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga.

In her official Twitter account, Evangelista said she's starting a new chapter in her life and that she's embracing singlehood once again.

"Today I woke up with a different mindset. When the end comes, a new chapter begins. It's Heart's time again. Being single is embracing growth," she said.

"Breakups don't always mean the other one was bad or we didn't love each other. It could just be …we were too different," Evangelista said in another tweet.

For his part, Matsunaga appealed to his fans to respect Evangelista.

"Guys, please. I never asked anything from you all, but today will be my first time. ...Please respect Heart 'cause she is the best and she (is) still an angel," he said.

"Can't be happy at this moment, guys. God bless you all. Thanks for the words. I am sure you all know what is happening. Just asking God, why? I tried," the Brazilian-Japanese model said.

According to speculations, cultural differences caused the breakup.

Evangelista and Matsunaga confirmed their relationship last September.
