MANILA - Former Kapamilya singer Rachelle Ann Go has confirmed that she is dating former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Slater Young.
In an interview with ABS-CBN's entertainment portal Push.com, the 27-year-old said she isn't hiding anything about her relationship with Young but added that they are only dating.
"Nakikita rin naman ng mga tao kaming lumalabas. Yes we’re dating, 'yun lang," she said.
Rumors linking the two began after both Young and Go posted pictures of them together in their Instagram accounts. Young then openly confessed the status of their relationship to ABS-CBN entertainment writer Darla Sauler.
Go, who bagged a role at the West End revival of "Miss Saigon," will be leaving for London in March in time for the rehearsals, where she would stay for over a year.
"Ako lagi ko namang sinasabi na kailangan focus ako doon at dapat maintindihan kung may nagpu-pursue man sa akin dito dapat maintindihan niya 'yon at dapat makapaghintay kung sino man 'yon," she said.
While a long-distance relationship can be daunting to any couple, let alone for those who only started dating, Go sees the time away from the country and from Young as a test of the actor's sincerity.
"Basta lagi kong sinasabi lalo nung umpisa palang na aalis ako, kung liligawan mo ako mahirap 'yan! Diyan na rin natin makikita ang sincerity nung tao kung kayo talaga para sa isa’t-isa," she said. "Test na rin ‘yun."
