MANILA (UPDATED) - Megastar Sharon Cuneta is no longer with TV5.

The veteran actress, without going into details, broke the news on her Facebook and Twitter accounts on Friday.

An accompanying caption wrote: "I am going to drop clues every now and then as to the things I will be working on which will start sooner than you think!"

"So keep watching out for those clues. Goodnight, everyone! Sweet dreams and May God bless you always!" she added.

In a text message to ABS-CBN News, Peachy Guioguio of TV5's corporate communications department said the network wishes Cuneta well in her future endeavors.

"TV5 wishes to extend its gratitude to Ms. Sharon Cuneta for being a part of the Kapatid network for almost three years. The network wishes her well in all her future endeavors," she said.

Cuneta recently admitted in an open letter to her fans that she is "going through one of the lowest times of my life and career."

She also revealed other frustrations, including problems with her weight.

"I just do not like being big and fat because of the demands of this industry I move around in. And also, I have always enjoyed wearing my kind of clothes," she said.

Many celebrities have expressed support for the megastar. They include her husband and Food Security chief Francis Pangilinan, ex-husband Gabby Concepcion, and actress-host Judy Ann Santos.

In 2012, Sharon signed a reported record-breaking P1-billion contract with the Manny V. Pangilinan-owned network.

She hosted her own talk show entitled "Kasama Mo, Kapatid," and became a co-host of a musical variety show "The Mega and the Songwriter" alongside Ogie Alcasid.

She also starred in the comedy series "Madam Chairman," which premiered on 2013. It was her first TV series in 35 years. The show was cancelled by the network.
