Just days after coming out on national television in the Philippines, Charice shares another personal detail. The 21-year-old singer revealed she’s been in a relationship for months now with Alyssa Quijano. Charice declared, “She’s like my everything,” to journalists about her girlfriend.
The “Pyramid” singer has a tattoo on her chest which reads, “Let’s start with forever.” All you Twihards out there will no doubt recognize that line Robert Pattinson delivered during his wedding toast in The Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn Part I. On Alyssa’s part, she wears a promise ring Charice gave to her.
Before they became involved, the two were once rivals often competing against each other at local singing competitions during their youth. Years later, they met again when Charice was a judge on The X Factor Philippines where Quijano competed. Alyssa didn’t make it far on the show but rebounded by joining the girl group AKA Jam. Check out Alyssa’s X Factor audition below where she tackles a Burlesque track.
