Daiana Menezes has confirmed that the reported suicide attempt of her husband, former Cagayan de Oro representative Benjo Benaldo, was not connected to the feud that happened between them a few weeks ago.

In an official statement sent to PEP.ph, the Brazilian model said that the shooting happened because of the advocacies that the politician was fighting for.

"As to what transpired last June 27, my husband, Benjo assured me that he himself would address all of you regarding the matter when he is fit do to so. What I can relay to you however is that reason behind the incident are the advocacies he strongly believes in as relayed to me by Benjo last Saturday," she said. "For now, we plead that you reserve both conclusions and judgments until after an official statement is issued by my husband."

Daiana also stressed that her relationship with Benjo is still going strong despite the several controversies they have encountered.

"I would just like to say with certainty that whatever reasons surrounded this misfortune, they do not include any reasons stemming from our relationship as a married couple. In spite of our recent differences, we still continue to love each other. We have vowed to remain committed to each other and to support one another as we weather this storm together.”
