Showbizness is one area full of uncertainties. Sometimes you’re in, then next you’re not; sometimes loveteams last, and sometimes it don’t. Just like that, celebrity hook-ups which resulted to marriage are as unstable. Since the Philippines do not offer divorce services, annulment is the best option for celebrity couples who wants a clean closure with their partner. Here’s a list of celebrity couples whose marriages went downward and opted to file an annulment.
Diether Ocampo and Kristine Hermosa
They were indeed the perfect couple in the eyes of the local viewers in the early 2000s. But who would have that the flame they once had would die down? It was in September 2004 when the two finally tied the knot in Nueva Ecija. However, there were a lot of complications during then because just a year after, Kristine filed a nullification of the marriage in June 2005. Everything was so dramatic, because even if Kristine asked for a nullification, she still hoped for her and Diether to get married once again (this was before Oyo). The annulment was granted, so the marriage of Kristine and Oyo are very much legal.
Claudio Rondinelli and Miriam Quiambao
“It was a marriage doomed from the start”, said Miriam on an interview. As everyone knows, Miriam is a former TV host and a pretty beauty queen, while Claudio Rondinelli is a business tycoon in Hong Kong. Their love story solemnized in Boracay last 2004. Miriam said that they were both young and too inlove to notice that there are lots of other things that matter. They were both too in love to notice that “they are not the right person for each other”. After two and a half years of being together, Miriam filed an annulment and was granted on 2010. She said that her annulment with Claudio was probably one of the best decisions she has done in her life. Today, the two remain friends, and Miriam is now happily married with her husband Ardy Roberto.
Rustom Padilla and Carmina Villaroel
Probably one of the reel to real loveteams of the 90s was the Carmina-Rustom tandem. The two had this undeniably perfect chemistry on screen that made the viewers love them. After doing several shows together, their loveteam went from reel to real; and on 1994 they finally decided to get married at Paranaque. But similar with other showbiz marriages, theirs did not last long because on 1998, just four years after their marriage, Carmina already wanted out. She filed an annulment, stating that she suffers being with Rustom because of his over-protectiveness, jealousy, low sex-drive and insecurity. This petition was granted on 2002, setting both of them free from any legalities of their marriage. Today, Carmina is happily married with Zoren Legaspi and has two wonderful kids, while Rustom emerged out as BB Gandang Hari.
