Charice and Alyssa Quijano

A few years ago, when Charice was getting busy with her career in the U.S., she reached out to Alyssa. Their connection became even stronger in 2012 during Charice’s stint as a judge on “The X-Factor Philippines,” where Alyssa was a contestant – AKA JAM. Alyssa finished as a finalist on the show, but she ended up a winner in Charice’s heart. They eventually became a couple in October of 2012.

In 2013, Pempengco officially came out as a lesbian in an interview with “The Buzz.” The singer apologized to fans who were shocked and disappointed with her revelation. Pempengco, however, added that her sexual orientation should never be an issue, adding that it was just who she is.

Shortly after coming out as a lesbian in June of 2013, Charice introduced Alyssa to the world — as the woman in her life. Charice is in fact Alyssa’s first girlfriend.
