The Journey towards winning the crown requires a lot of time and effort. It takes a lot of self-dedication and a strong support system from your family, friends and if you’re lucky, from someone special.
While they say that behind every successful man stands a supportive, strong and loving woman, it seems the opposite when it comes to the success story of women. Looking back to these Miss Universe Philippines queens who after winning the crown is highlighted with a breakup story with their romantic relationships.
Catriona and Clint (2014-2019)
In 2019, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray confirmed in an interview with Tito Boy Abunda that she and her boyfriend, Clint Bondad, decided to end their six-year relationship. One of the reasons behind their split is, they outgrew each other and they already had misunderstandings even before the Miss Universe competition, she revealed during the interview. Gray also wanted to live in the moment and be focused on her Miss Universe journey. On the other hand, Bondad still showed his support to his ex-girlfriend throughout her win in Thailand.
Rabiya and Niel (2014-2020)
While for Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo, her 7-year relationship with Neil Salvacion is complicated, during an interview with Tito Boy Abunda last May 2021. It was only affirmed that they are no longer together after her long-time boyfriend, Salvacion, posted a text story on his Instagram account last June. Rumors about their break-up started spreading after several netizens noticed that Salvacion deleted all of his pictures with Rabiya in his Instagram feed. Today, both of them are not following each other anymore on their respective social media.
