Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo appears to be brushing off speculations that she and former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Andre Brouillette may be more than just friends.

This comes after Mateo’s longtime non-showbiz boyfriend Neil Salvacion has deleted photos of her from his Instagram page, leading fans to speculate that they have split. As of this writing, the two are still following each other on the platform.


The beauty queen showed a photo of her and Brouillette having lunch with a third companion in California, on her Instagram Story today, May 27. She also wrote the hashtags “#Friends,” “#Workmates,” “#NoMalice” and “#ImNotAvailable.”

Mateo also mentioned the names “Empire” and “Mercator,” which are agencies run by Miss Universe Philippines creative director Jonas Gaffud.
