“I’M HAPPY,” says girlfriend Alyssa Quijano (left), “because we don’t need to hide anymore.” The couple never stopped joking around during our interview.

Charice Pempengco and her live-in partner Alyssa Quijano have reportedly called it quits.

Pempengco’s handler Carl Cabral confirmed the split to ABS-CBN following a Pilipino Star Ngayon report indicating that Quijano was sighted leaving Pempengco’s apartment carrying packed bags last week.


Cabral said, “Yes, Charice and Alyssa have broken up and it was a mutual decision. Charice is not accepting any interviews and now taking a break. She’s doing fine and she’s happy.” Likewise, Cabral refuted rumors that the “Pyramid” singer is currently living with a close friend in Laguna. “The rumor that Charice is living with the fan is not true. She has bought her own house,” he told the news site.


Pempengco’s career has floundered over the past few years and she was even embroiled in a bitter fracas with her mother, Raquel Pempengco. She temporarily left the limelight last month through several tweets. “I can’t anymore. I’m over it,” she wrote. “Happy for what I’ve achieved, for what I’ve become, for making people happy. I’ll just leave it like that. I’m tired now.”

She called off her March 24 concert “Charice: End of Chapter Rock Concert,” which would have been her swan song.

Pempengco, 24, and Quijano first admitted in 2013 that they had entered into a relationship. Last year, the couple said they planned to tie the knot and have children.  Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
