Koko Pimentel, wife call it quits

Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III on Tuesday revealed that he and his wife for 12 years have separated.
 
“I confirm my separation from my wife of close to 12 years, Jewel May Lobaton. We have been living separately since November 2011,” Pimentel said in a statement.
 
Lobaton is a former Binibining Pilipinas titleholder who represented the country in the Miss Universe pageant in 1998.
 
“This may well be the most difficult public pronouncement I will ever be making in my entire life. And painful too, as every separation involves a certain degree of pain,” the senator said.
 
He added that he tried to resolve their differences for the sake of their two children but to no avail.
 
“Now that we have separated, my main concern is the welfare of the boys.
 
Hence, I am asking for prayers from my supporters and the understanding of our people whom I serve. I want to assure them that this situation will not affect the discharge of my duties as a senator,” Pimentel said.

Last month, Senator Francis Escudero revealed he and wife Tintin have called it quits.
