Reports reaching THE WEEKEND STAR are that dancehall artiste Chino, whose real name is Daniel McGregor, and his beauty queen girlfriend, Yendi Phillipps, have called it quits on their relationship.
After a much-publicised pregnancy, which was announced via social media, the relationship between the two has seemingly come to an end.
Sources close to the couple have confirmed with THE WEEKEND STAR that the two are no longer an item.
Both parties were given a chance to comment on the matter recently and they didn’t confirm or the deny the speculation.
Rumours about the couple’s split began circulating late last year, but when THE WEEKEND STAR approached them about the issue, the couple didn’t say much.
“Where did you get that information from? I am in the middle of something right now and I cannot comment on that,” Chino said before hanging up his phone.
Former Miss Jamaica World (2007) and Miss Jamaica Universe (2010) Phillipps didn’t take up our offer to comment on the split but stated that she was not interested in talking about her personal life with the press.
“I want you to stop using my number to ask me stupid things,” the beauty queen said.
In 2012, just months after announcing Phillipp’s pregnancy, Chino also released a track titled Miss Universe, seemingly dedicated to his then baby- mother.
Phillipps also set tongues wagging after she was seen on the popular morning show, Smile Jamaica, sporting what appeared to her fans to be an engagement ring.
With reports that the couple had split, THE WEEKEND STAR perused their Instagram pages where it was revealed that they were not following each other. Images which previously showcased the couple in happier times had also been removed.
The couple welcomed a daughter in September 2012.
