Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, December 6)— Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach on Friday denied that money was the cause of her recent split with professional race car driver Marlon Stockinger.

“It's true that Marlon and I are no longer together. I wish him and his family well, and out of respect for them, let me make it clear - Marlon and his family never depended on me financially,” Wurtzbach said in a statement released by her business manager Rikka Fernandez.

Entertainment website Pep.ph earlier reported that the couple parted ways in September. Citing a source, the website added Stockinger's "unemployment" was one of the reasons for the breakup.

The Filipino-German beauty queen did not provide other details of the breakup, saying it will be her “only statement on the matter.” Stockinger has yet to release a statement on the issue.

Wurtzbach, 30, and Stockinger, 28, first revealed their relationship in 2017.
