Joanne Peh splits with Bobby Tonelli after 4-year romance

Popular TV actress Joanne Peh revealed that she has split up with Singapore-based Italian-American DJ-actor Bobby Tonelli.

The announcement surprised many, including MediaCorp's own magazine 8 Days, which splashed the news on the cover of its latest issue on Sunday.

"We've actually not been together for... a while," Peh, 28, said of Tonelli, 37. The couple had a high-profile relationship for four years.

Although she could not pinpoint the exact date they split, she said they had grown apart and that it had slowly dawned on her that she "does not know him".

"I don't know what he's thinking," she told the magazine.

"I don't think he knows what I'm thinking, what I'm feeling, what I'm going through either."

Explaining her decision to come clean about their relationship, Peh, who said she went through"a period of grieving, crying and struggling", said she was "tired of pretending everything is okay when it isn't".

She said no third party was involved.

She also said the break-up was not because she was "more successful than he is" - just that he was not "the right guy".

When The New Paper contacted Tonelli on Monday, he said he was not ready to talk about the split.  

However, a source close to him revealed that Tonelli was "a little upset" by Peh's interview.

Said the source: "He didn't expect the interview to be so big and he wasn't pre-empted about it. I think it was unexpected not only for him but people around him. But he's not angry, just a little upset."
