Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya was spotted having lunch with former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Andre Brouilette in Beverly Hills, California on May 26.

“Lunch with the lovely and beautiful Miss Universe Philippines,” wrote Andre in his caption on Instagram.

The bonding photo between Rabiya and Andre surfaced following reports that the beauty queen and her long-time boyfriend Neil Salvacion have split.

Some netizens made the speculations after they noticed that the couple pictures of Rabiya and Neil could no longer be seen on Instagram of the nurse-boyfriend.

“Kuya bat deleted napo mga Pics nyo ni ate rabs break Napo ba kayo? Sana dipa,” a netizen commented. (Brother, the couple pictures with Ate Rabiya have been deleted. Did you break up with her? I hope not).

Prior to Miss Universe, Rabiya vowed not to leave her boyfriend of six years if she becomes successful.

“We’ve been dating for six years. He’s my first boyfriend. We’ve been together since college. I can make a man stay!” said the beauty queen from Iloilo in an interview.


Rabiya is still in the US for a vacation after she competed at the 69th Miss Universe pageant in Hollywood, Florida last May 16. She said that she is preparing to go back to the Philippines.

The Filipino beauty queen finished in the top 21 of the prestigious competition.
