Charice Reportedly Elopes With An ‘x Factor Philippines’ FinalistMany things are going on these days in the personal life of international singing sensation Charice. In the last few weeks, several photographs circulated with the insinuation about her gender orientation. The singer has remained mum about the issue.
Now, Charice is in another brewing controversy following reports that she eloped with Alyssa Kate Quijano, a member of the all-girl singing group A.K.A. Jam, which in turn was among the finalists in the ‘X-Factor Philippines’ where Charice sat as a mentor and judge last year.
A.K.A. Jam was in the group category of the competition. It was mentored by judge Gary Valenciano. For her part, Charice mentored the individual girls finalists, which included the grand winner KZ Tandingan. Meanwhile, A.K.A. Jam was recently seen as a finalist in the ‘Bida Kapamilya’ showdown of ‘It’s Showtime,’ still aired over ABS-CBN.
The personality of Quijano is not a mystery anymore. There are speculations that she is currently the girlfriend of Charice. In fact, according to some insiders, Quijano is ‘Ayie,’ who have been consistently mentioned by Charice in her recent tweets.
TV5’s ‘Ang Latest’ did a probe on the issue. The show interviewed an informant, who called himself ‘Mike.’ According to him, Charice recently had plans to buy a new home. She even went to a home inspection. When it happened, Mike said he immediately informed Racquel, Charice’s mother, about her daughter’s supposed plans. It happened just a week ago.
In May 8, Mike said he received a text message from an unknown sender who identified herself as Liza, Quijano’s mom. He revealed that Liza asked him about Charice’s whereabouts. According to Liza, she was with several NBI personnel because she asked for assistance to make sure her daughter would come with her.
By 11:30 p.m. on the same day, Mike said Liza texted him anew. He disclosed that Liza supposedly thanked him for his help. She said she has finally brought her daughter back home.
Grandma and mother
Charice is now at odds with her grandmother and mother. In a TV interview with ‘Ang Latest,’ Tess Relucio, Charice’s grandma revealed how painful it is for her to hear these stories about her granddaughter. She even revealed that Racquel, her daughter, has told her that she (Racquel) and Charice had a heated confrontation when Racquel tried to convince Charice to go home with her.
For her part, Racquel said she can’t consider the incident as eloping. In an interview on May 14 with ABS-CBN News, she admitted that she received a call from Liza, who was then asking for her help because Quijano had not been going home for several days already because she was with Charice.
According to Racquel, Quijano left their home again in May 13. She revealed that several witnesses saw her get into a gray car with another woman, whom many people presume to be Charice. Racquel defended her daughter by saying that no one can be sure if it was indeed Charice who picked Quijano from her home.
