27 May – Rumours are rife that there is trouble in paradise for Miss Universe-PH Rabiya Mateo and non-showbiz boyfriend, Neil Salvacion.
As reported on Push, speculations of a breakup sparked recently after eagle-eyed netizens noticed that there were no more photos of the beauty queen on her boyfriend's personal Instagram account.
As of now, there are no more than 13 posts on Salvacion's Instagram account, with none of them featuring Mateo - including his birthday greeting to her last November.
However, the two still follow each other on social media.
It is noted that Mateo and Salvacion have been in a relationship for more than six years, even before her involvement in pageants.
In a previous interview, Mateo stated that her boyfriend is very supportive of her dream of becoming Miss Universe Philippines, adding, "He made me promise not to leave him even if I win the Miss Universe Philippines crown."
