MANILA – Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray confirmed that she has chosen to prioritize her crown over her heart.
“I’m Miss Universe now,” Gray smilingly said on Friday during her visit to the PLDT office in Makati City.
With that cryptic line, it seems that she gave up her love life and called it quits with her boyfriend of six years, model Clint Bondad.
Gray wanted to focus on her Miss Universe duties, so her relationship with Bondad naturally took a backseat as she devotes her time on this once-in-a-lifetime journey.
Hours later, during her visit to the ABS-CBN headquarters, Gray set the record straight once and for all, saying she is currently single.
The beauty queen was asked during the Kapamilya Confessions online segment about how she manages to balance her love life and career as a Miss Universe titleholder.
She replied, as quoted by the entertainment website Push: “Well, it’s about balance, whatever works for your personal life. But for me, wala akong love life ngayon.”
On Sunday, the 25-year-old Filipino-Australian beauty queen will headline a thanksgiving show at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Past Miss Universe queens Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran, and Pia Wurtzbach will likewise grace the show.
