Of course, we won’t let this year end without looking back at the massive breakups of 2023. Are you ready to backtrack?
Starting off strong with PH’s beloved Kathniel, the love team of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. The couple announced their breakup on November 30, 2023, through separate Instagram posts.
Kathniel went from reel to real when they started from being co-stars to a love team and then officially making it official. They are or were the Philippines’ top ships, which was why fans were devastated by the news. But one thing is certain: each will still strive with their respective endeavors.
