Rabiya Mateo gave an update on the status of her relationship with boyfriend Neil Salvacion during an interview with Boy Abunda on his YouTube channel.
The beauty queen admitted that their romance isn’t at its best form as of the moment, which the couple will have to talk over when she returns from USA.
“It's a complicated situation and we need to talk about things when I go back to the Philippines,” she revealed.
Rabiya maintained that she and Neil are still in touch, but she also thinks that the space they have now from each other would help the both of them.
“We're friends, we’re friends,” she added. “I still try to contact him, but we need to have this space together as of the moment.”
The Ilongga stunner shared that they have been through a similar problem in the past, so she’s hopeful that they would be able to work things out again this time.
“I’m not closing any doors. We've been in this kind of situation before,” We’ve been together for seven years and who knows po, who knows. But we will make sure to work things out. If it's true love, it will never end,” she told Boy.
Rabiya was asked to comment on being linked to former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Andre Brouillette after they were spotted together.
She explained, “Tito Boy, nahihiya ako kay Andre. It’s because ‘yung photos na kumalat, that was the third time that I was able to talk to him. The first one was before my send off to Miss Universe. The second was during the competition. And that was the third time, na sinundo lang nila ako sa airport. And he was a nice guy.”
