Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo has cleared up rumors that she and former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Andre Brouillette are playing sweet music together.

On Instagram, Rabiya reposted the model’s post along with the words: “#Friends,” “#Workmates,” “#NoMalice,” “#Empire,” “#Mercator,” and “#ImNotAvailable.”

The hashtags for #Empire and #Mercator refer to Miss Universe Philippines Creative Director Jonas Gaffud, beauty pageant training and personality development center Empire Studios and fashion and commercial Mercator Model Management.

Andre covered Rabiya’s Miss Universe journey as host of “MU Updates.”

News about the two being an item started to circulate after they were spotted together in Beverly Hills. In one of Rabiya’s Instagram stories, Andre could be seen “flexing” his bicep, while in another photo they were sharing gummies.

Adding fuel to the fire was Rabiya’s long-time boyfriend Neil Salvacion who removed all the photos of the beauty queen on his social media account.
