Why is Charice taking a break?

A few weeks back, singer Charice Pempengco posted some troubling messages on Twitter following her announcement that she would be taking a break from showbiz. 

“Happy for what I’ve achieved, for what I’ve become, for making people happy. I’ll just leave it like that. I’m tired now,” her social media post said.

Thereafter, her concert at the Kia Theater scheduled on March 24 was cancelled leaving her fans more curious on the singer’s sudden decision. The concert was supposed to be her chance to thank her fans and give them updates on her personal and professional status.

According to Star Music, the concert was cancelled due to personal reasons without further elaborating on what was troubling the singer. But answer to this puzzle came quickly when the singer’s handler Carl Cabral, in a report by ABS-CBN News on Thursday, confirmed that Charice and her partner for four years have called it quits. 

In 2013, Charice shocked the world when she came out as a lesbian on national television. On the same year, she also announced her romantic relationship with Alyssa Quijano, a former contestant of The X Factor Philippines. Last October, the pair talked about the secret to their strong relationship and discussed about having kids.
