Joanne Peh's ex-boyfriend Bobby Tonelli has blamed communication failure for his split with the MediaCorp actress.

In a six-paragraph statement on his Facebook page today, the Italian-American DJ-actor also said Peh, 29, was the "the first Asian girl I ever dated", but they hit it off despite the cultural gap.

His comments followed news last week that Peh is dating her fellow star Qi Yuwu, 36, who is born in China.

"I didn't know much about her culture and although we were from two different worlds, we somehow connected," Singapore-based Tonelli, 37, wrote about first meeting Peh.
