Rumors are circulating that Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo and her boyfriend Neil Salvacion may have broken up.
On Instagram, Neil’s photos with the beauty queen are absent from his Instagram page, which, as of this writing, only has 13 posts.
Neil, who works as a medical frontliner, is Rabiya's first boyfriend and they have been together for six years. Those who follow Neil noticed the absence of Rabiya's photos, fueling speculation that the two may have broken up.
According to reports, Neil even penned a heartfelt birthday greeting for Rabiya in November 2020 when she celebrated her 24th birthday. He wrote: "Being proud is an understatement to what I feel towards your success, you've sacrificed so much in life but manage to remain optimistic in whatever situation you've faced."
Netizens who are following Neil on Instagram noticed the deleted posts:
Rabiya recently made her first official appearance since the Miss Universe competition at an event with the Filipino community in Los Angeles. She said that it felt like her "mini victory party."
Adding to the speculation of a break-up are photos of Rabiya with former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Andre Brouillette. On Instagram stories, Andre welcomed Rabiya at the airport and the two dined out with a friend in Rodeo Drive.
While nothing is confirmed yet, Neil and Rabiya still follow each other on Instagram. The Ilongga beauty queen previously said in an interview with Dian Castillejo, "I can make a man stay." She added, "He made me promise not to leave him even if I win the Miss Universe crown."
