Miss Universe runner-up Janine Tugonon dumps her boyfriend after exchanging Twitter messages with Danny O'Donoghue
But now his flirting has led to a Miss Universe runner-up dumping her boyfriend – and caused a showbiz scandal in her native Philippines.
During an appearance on a Filipino TV show on 16 April, Janine Tugonon, 23, admitted that she’d split with her boyfriend of one year Jaypee Santos after meeting Danny recently.
According to one Filipino news site, ‘they aren’t yet an item, but they communicate’.
Our source reveals: ‘Janine said it was a snap decision to end her relationship.
‘She needs to know if her feelings with Danny are real.’
Danny and Janine met after a Script gig in Manila in March.
They soon began following each other on Twitter.
Our source adds: ‘He sent her a DM [private message], but Jaypee also saw it.
‘He said that she shouldn’t be messaging other men, which led to an argument and the end of their relationship.’
Heartbroken Jaypee is hoping that Janine will take him back, Tweeting: ‘She needs time…
‘Time for herself, not for another guy.’
But, at the time of going to press, Janine and Danny were still following each other on Twitter.
This isn’t the first time Danny‘s flirting has got him into trouble.
Last year, he faced rumours he’d dumped girlfriend of four years Irma Mali for his Voice act Bo Bruce, 28.
Bo‘s never confirmed or denied a relationship, but last week she revealed: ‘I was very vulnerable and I regret a lot of things that happened.’
Danny, 32, also recently got a slap on the wrist from The Voice producers for keeping the 200 – strong audience waiting for half an hour while he flirted backstage with the sisters of Conor Scott, an Irish singer he chose for his team.
And on 27 April viewers saw him mesmerised by ex-Hollyoaks star Alice Barlow, 21, describing her as ‘a lovely looking girl’.
A Voice spokesman declined to comment.
