An ABS-CBN news article have said that Tugonon, who appeared on "KrisTV" with Santos, admitted they have called it quits. The reason for the breakup is reportedly Tugonon's attraction to The Script's lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue.
The Irish pop-rock band The Script is the group behind the hits "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" and "Breakeven."
"Actually honestly ngayon we are not in good terms. Siguro may nangyari lang na hindi ko ini-expect na mangyayari," Tugonon said.
"Honestly po kasi break talaga kami ngayon," she added.
Asked if it's true that O'Donoghue likes her, the beauty queen said: "Hindi naman sa type, we are talking lang. Pero ano naman yan spur of the moment lang."
According to Tugonon, she met O'Donoghue during the band's meet and greet at the Big Dome.
"Nanood kami ng concert. Kasi hindi ba sa Araneta kapag may meet and greet, since kilala ko ang staff ng Araneta sabi ko sa kanila sobra akong fan ng The Script pwede bang ma-meet ko. So na meet niya ako, nandoon siya si (Jaypee) pinakilala ko nga siya, kasi tinanong niya 'do you have a boyfriend?' Sabi ko 'yeah that's my boyfriend.' Tapos yon sabi niya 'follow me on Twitter and I will follow you back' tapos nag-direct message siya. Oo na (galit) siya (si Jaypee) kasi sabi niya kung ayaw mo talaga sa taong yan hindi mo siya kokontakin," Tugonon said.
Because of that incident, Tugonon said they argued and she broke up with Santos.
"Kasi nga ayaw ko naman na may iba akong iniisip. Sabi ko lang sa kanya siguro I need sometime to think talaga," she said.
"Akala ko kasi si Danny na baka that night lang o nagandahan lang and all pero feeling ko siya din ay gusto niyang makilala ako," she said.
"Actually hindi naman kami ni Danny. Nagtetext siya everyday simula noong nag-concert siya dito."

For his part, Santos said that he is still pursuing Tugonon but respects her decision to give her some time.
In previous interviews, Tugonon consistently defended Santos, her boyfriend of one year, from critics, saying that she does not need a “Brad Pitt.”
Some had commented that Santos was not good enough for Tugonon, who was first runner-up at the 2012 Miss Universe pageant in December.
