It seems the Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach boyfriend is no longer Dr. Mike.
Wurtzbach snapped a photo of her with professional Formula 1 racer Marlon Stockinger. The picture, which she captioned “Marloner,” was taken a day before her birthday. The beauty queen turned 27 on Saturday and was warmly thrown a birthday surprises by her loved ones.
Twenty-five-year-old Stockinger is the first Filipino to win a formula race in Europe, Manila Bulletin reported. The Filipino-Swiss race car driver is currently based in Zurich, Switzerland. He drove for the Lotus F1 Team Juniors in the 2013 World Series by Renault.
Meanwhile, Wurtzbach and Dr. Mikhail Varshavski, also known as Dr. Mike, first met at a charity event in New York in February. A month later, People magazine’s “Sexiest Doctor Alive” revealed in one interview that he is dating the beauty queen. Wurtzbach, on the other hand, initially refused to answer the question if she is going out with the hot doctor. She eventually admitted in an interview that they are indeed dating. The reigning Miss Universe 2015, however, stressed at the time that her job will always be her priority.
The last time the two exchanged sweet messages on Twitter was in May. At the time, Dr Mike revealed that he is actually trying to learn the mother tongue of Wurtzbach, which impressed the beauty queen.
Nag aaral lang ngayon ng Tagalog. 📓📝🇵🇭🤓 Mabuhay Philippines!

However, prior to their exchange of messages, there have been rumors that the two split. Speculations indicated that the break up stemmed from Wurtzbach’s cryptic Instagram post saying: “Boy, I’m a prize, not a catch.”
Apparently, Wurtzbach has already deleted the photos of Dr. Mike on her Instagram account. The doctor, on the other hand, still has the photo of him and Wurtzbach taken during their helicopter date in New York in April.
