Ever since the couple publicized their relationship, they frequently showed off their love and often posted heartwarming photos on social networks.At one point, there were even rumours that they're getting married, which shocked the public. Even Florinda's mother, who strongly opposed them being together, eventually changed her mind and allowed her daughter to marry.

That night, she posted a photo of a thousand words forming the shape of a heart and wrote: "Love=Money".Earlier, she uploaded a photo that had the English message: "Some people come into your life as Blessings!! Others come in your life AS LESSONS!!" These Weibo posts implied that the pair have broken up.The day before yesterday, Florinda uploaded another photo of her carrying her pet dog ('Siu Kat') and said: "Siu Kat, we have to separate." It was understood, they are not playing 'love games' this time, their relationship has really come to an end.Yesterday reporters contacted Florinda via WhatsApp to confirm the breakup rumor.
