Wha-?! After YEARS of Dating, Glee Star Breaks Up with Longtime Love
Grant Gustin‘s not the only Glee alum with an updated relationship status — Charice is switching things up as well. Only, instead of announcing an engagement, like the star of The Flash, the 24-year-old singer is in Splitsville. Wha-?!
That’s right, after years of dating — four, to be precise — Charice (a.k.a. Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco) and longtime, live-in girlfriend Alyssa Quijano, reportedly broke up.
“Yes, Charice and Alyssa have broken up and it was a mutual decision,” the “Pyramid” crooner’s ~handler~, Carl Cabrel, confirmed in a text message to ABS-CBN News. “Charice is not accepting any interviews and now taking a break. He’s doing fine and he’s happy. Thank you very much.”
This comes as quite a shock to fans, as the two kicked off their relationship in June 2013 — the same month Charice came out as a lesbian. “Now I feel free,” the musician tweeted at the time. “I can go out of the house without fear and be certain that I’m not stepping on anybody’s toes. I don’t know what’s the problem with that. Because for me, there isn’t a problem with that.”
The following year, the alum of the Fox dramedy admitted another personal shocker to Oprah, regarding gender identity: “Basically, my soul is male,” Charice declared, “but I’m not going to go through that stage where I’m going to change everything.”
