She wrote on Twitter at the time: "It is with a heavy heart that we want to let you know we separated some time ago last year. We are telling people now because speculation is unhelpful at best, and dangerous at worst." Johnny and Maria reportedly reconciled their relationship in late 2018, but then called it quits once more.
