She also theorised as to the possible reasons that could have led to the unexpected split saying that the relationship had its ups and downs, saying,

No, actually I did not play any role in their breakup. They have split countless times because of their own issues. Why do people want to fix me in the whole story? How can I make two people part ways? she posed.

Mars also used the opportunity to make it crystal clear that she did not and does not harbor bad feelings towards Jux and has never had a say in her sister’s relationship.

She added:

I actually do not have a say in their relationship so their breakup does not concern me at all.

Mars’ confession comes days after reports that Vanessa and Jux had parted ways.


According to the reports Jux cheated on his lover with another woman, a move that led to the said breakup, although both parties have not really come out to admit or deny the claims.
