    PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) found out from a source that Sharon and Gabby met in Makati earlier today.

    The meeting occurred barely three weeks after Sharon and Gabby broke the internet with their viral TV commercial. That got fans looking back at the couple's real and reel life, and Sharon herself was feeling nostalgic. From unsuspecting fans, she answered details about her marriage and breakup with Gabby in the '80s on Facebook.

    Both Gabby and Sharon said — in separate interviews published on PEP.ph in 2008 — they never had a formal closure to their split after all these years.

    According to legal papers that YES! Magazine obtained in its June 2008 report, Sharon and Gabby were married thrice. They first got secretly married in civil rites on June 23, 1984. Their second civil wedding was held on September 10, 1984. After 13 days or on September 23, 1984, the couple had a grand wedding witnessed by family and friends at the Manila Cathedral.

    Sharon and Gabby lived as husband and wife at their home in Alabang for almost three years, until they separated in 1987 due to several reasons cited by both parties.

    Based on legal papers, Sharon was quoted as saying, “That the separation was caused by domestic and personal problems, non-compatibility, and because there were other women.”

    Gabby, for his part, was quoted as saying, “That liking beautiful women is natural for anybody. That he has been linked with so many beautiful women during their [sic] marriage with Sharon Cuneta.”

    The legal papers also indicated that Gabby suggested marriage counselling, but that Sharon “never agreed” to it.

    Sharon was firm in saying that she “did not see enough evidence” to convince her that Gabby really wanted for them to reconcile.

    But it was only on June 9, 1993 that Sharon filed for nullity of her marriage to Gabby before Pasig City Regional Trial Court.

    By November 10, 1993, the court declared the couple’s marriage null and void “for being bigamous in nature” since Gabby was still married to a certain Jennifer Martin when he wed Sharon in 1984.

    Fast forward to February 9, 2018, the Megastar wrote a lengthy note about how she and Gabby have buried the hatchet between them. 


    Her statement partly read: "May God bless our renewed friendship and may we truly learn to forgive as we say we do and keep only all the good that we shared, for the next 100 years.

    "Our baby girl is happy. She is also in disbelief.

    "And also as thankful as I am that apart from all the blessings that God has always showered US two together with, this reconnection with you has been His biggest gift." 

    Hinting at another project with Gabby, Sharon added, "And yes, hang in there. This MAY just really be ONLY THE BEGINNING...???? HELLO, EVERYONE!"
