Gab Valenciano speaks up about his ex girlfriends Nikki Gil and Rachelle Ann Go and rumored new girl Carmen Soo.
Gab Valenciano had unfortunately been tagged as a playboy when after his relationship with Rachelle Ann Go, ended, he was spotted going out with Carmen Soo. But Gab insisted that he is just friends with the Malaysian star. “Carmen is a friend. I find her very attractive but she is just a friend. If I really like her I would have done something, but I didn’t because she is just a friend. Carmen has nothing to do with our breakup. We don’t really go out anymore para na rin to avoid people talking about us.”
Gab also clarified that there was no third party involved in his break up with Rachelle Ann. “I can proudly say that I really cared for her. But I guess our differences got the best of us and it didn’t work out, too. It’s not because of anybody else. If it did not work out because of another girl, I would still be with that another girl. Bakit mo naman ime-mess up ‘yung current relationship kung hindi mo talaga mahal ‘yung new girl?”
He also explained that the end of their relationship is not the reason Rachelle Ann decided to leave ASAP XV and move to the rival program. “I guess it’s a career move. For me she was the best female singer sa ASAP. I guess it’s a career move and not because of love life. Maybe she thought she’s more fit there. I don’t know her real reasons. Definitely not because of me. It’s in the news that she has someone new now.”
Gab recently renewed his contract with ASAP XV for another year, which means he will continue to be a mainstay performer in the top-rating musical variety show alongside the brightest Kapamilya stars. Incidentally, another ASAP mainstay is Gab’s ex girlfriend Nikki Gil and her new man, Billy Crawford. Gab said that there’s no tension whenever he would run into Nikki and Billy at the backstage at ASAP. “I’m very, very happy for them. I’ve seen their relationship grow because we all see each other every week sa ASAP. Even before pa I knew na Billy had a special feeling for her. I never got affected because ang tagal na nun e (his relationship with Nikki). It was puppy love, but still love. It just didn’t work out because we were very young.”
