Ximena Duque, Carlos Ponce Breakup Rumors Circulate
Several reports are suggesting that celebrity couple Ximena Duque and Carlos Ponce may have split, keeping the breakup under the radar.
According to TVyNovelas, the actress and Ponce, who have been dating since 2010, haven't been spotted together in quite some time. Last year the couple attended several events together, including the Latin American Music Awards and the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame La Musa Awards in October.
More recently, however, Duque attended the Jan. 19 Telemundo NATPE party alone. Perhaps even more noticeable, and the development that has many questioning the status of their relationship, is the absence of both stars from one another's social media accounts.
Duque and Ponce both share many photos on their Instagram accounts, often including images of the activities they do together. In recent weeks, Ponce hasn't made an appearance on the "Dueños del paraíso" star's Instagram. Meanwhile, the last post that Ponce shared of Duque was of her playing with their dog over a month ago.
Duque hasn't shared a photo of Ponce in over a month as well, but she did share a few videos featuring their dog about a week ago. Ponce makes no appearances in any of those videos.
Duque recently celebrated her birthday. She wrote a long message under a photo of her cake, detailing everyone she is thankful for, including her son, parents, brother, nephews and extended family, but she made no mention of Ponce.

The rumors have been undermined by the fact that old Instagram posts of the two together have not been erased. Usually, celebrity couples erase all evidence of romance after a split.
When questioned about the split rumors, Duque neither denied nor confirmed the speculation, reported TVNotas.
"For the first time I will say that I don't talk about my personal life," she said. "At this moment I have a lot of wonderful things happening for me and I want people to know that I am okay, I am happy."
