Last February 9, Erich confirmed that she and Daniel had broken up after two years of dating. Although she refused to divulge the reason behind their breakup, people speculated money was an issue because she said in an interview: "Tungkol sa pera, ayoko na po magdetalye tungkol diyan. (With regard to money, I don't want to talk about it.) Like what I said, I just really wanna move on." (READ: Erich Gonzales confirms breakup with Daniel Matsunaga)
