The Twitter account user did not identify the source of the collaged photograph that it has disseminated. The identity of the girl with Charice was also not properly and clearly disclosed. However, many Twitter followers and users were quick on their assumption that the unknown girl could be Charice’s kept girlfriend.

Many netizens asserted that she looked like Psy, the Korean singer of the monster hit ‘Gangnam Style.’ Others compared her new look to the physical appearances of Daniel Padilla and Aiza Seguerra, another hitmaker who is openly gay.
The new set of pictures, as expected, is prompting another round of speculations about Charice’s sexual preference. Some people are speculating that she is soon to come out of her closet.

Gone for some time
It was November 5, 2012 when Charice posted her latest entry in Twitter. Her Twitter account @OfficialCharice has remained active, although it has yet to post a new message from the young singer. In the last quarter of last year, Charice faced controversy when she sat as a mentor and judge in the singing reality search ‘The X Factor Philippines.’
While in the show, Charice was criticized by some people due to her odd hairstyles. Even the clothes she wore drew issues. In that show, Charice’s talent KZ Tandingan bagged the grand prize.
Charice has been altering her hairdo every now and then. She has also been criticized for wearing several tattoos. It seems that most of her public followers are not yet ready to set aside her girl-next-door image she maintained while she was active in the international music scene, right after Oprah Winfrey decided to manage her career.
Many observers think Charice opts to remain indifferent over her new lifestyle. She has been quoted many times saying that she does not care how people think of her anymore. The 20-year-old singer throws hints that she is out to do what she wants to do without caring about how people would think about her.
