Romnick Sarmenta & Harlene Bautista Statement

“An appeal for privacy

“Romnick and I have five beautiful children, whom we love and treasure very much – we have spent many years together as best friends and partners in everything that we have done.

“Even more so in raising our family.

“We will always be great friends if not the best of friends.

“With the greatest respect and mutual love, wanting nothing but happiness for each other we have decided to part ways.

“We would like to appeal for privacy, for our children and for each other as well.

“Being public figures, we know that this will not go unnoticed—and we didn’t want speculations, rumours and gossips to destroy the wonderful memories we share, the peace that we continue to have as best friends.

“We both decided that it would be best to issue a statement, in an intention to let this be the first and last time that we talk about it.

“Neither he nor I wish to speak at length about the matter, seeing as to how we had been able to keep the fact for as long as we have.

“We request that our individual supporters, friends and family refrain from making comments or issuing statements that may hurt or offend not only ourselves, but most importantly our beloved children.

“We thank you, for the prayers and support— and most of all for respecting our wishes.

“God bless you.”

Both grew up in showbiz having started as child stars. The couple met as young teens in That’s Entertainment and that was where their relationship started after several years. After getting married, both Romnick and Harlene chose to lie low in show business.
