Monday, November 12, came as a shock for the fans of Rachelle Ann Go and Christian Bautista—entertainment columnist Ricky Lo wrote in the Philippine Star that the two young singers were no longer a couple.
To confirm the news, Christian sent a statement to Ricky, saying that there was no third party involved. The couple had tried to fix their relationship, but some things were deemed unresolvable. And so they finally decided to call it quits.
Before the news came up, people were surprised to see Rachelle without Christian when she showed up at the concert of international singer Beyonce Knowles with fellow ASAP '07 co-host Jed Madela on November 6 at The Fort. Jed also courted Rachelle before.
"Hindi namin siya makasama, hinihintay daw niya si Justin Timberlake," Rachelle candidly explained.
The following night, November 7, Rachelle and Christian were spotted together at a birthday party, looking happy. But unknown to some, they were actually going through a difficult time in their relationship.
At the trade launch of ABS-CBN last November 15, Christian finally went public about his breakup with Rachelle, but refused to give out details to Entertainment Live. Instead, he just said that he and Rachelle were good friends and that there was really no third party involved.
Because of the couple's refusal to spill the details, a lot of speculation began to pop up, like Rachelle being a "passive" girlfriend and, according to informants, she discovered something about Christian that eventually led to the breakup.
