 Set to leave for London this March to become part of the prestigious musical Miss Saigon, Rachelle Ann Go said she sees the entire opportunity as a test of sorts to those pursuing her. While she didn’t drop a specific name during an interview on January 13 after her pictorial for her February 22 Meralco Theater concert titled Miss Rachelle: The Sendoff Concert, everyone seemingly had one person in mind. Just a week ago, Kapamilya talent Slater Young admitted that he and The Little Mermaid actress are currently dating. 

’Pag alis ko, ako kasi focus muna ako doon sa gagawin ko. Fourteen months din ‘yun, matagalAlam niyo ako, ito lang ang masasabi ko. Mahirap kasing magsalita. Andun ‘yung focus ko sa trabaho, basta dapat dalawin niya ako do’n,” joked Rachelle, who will be taking on the role of Gigi in the West End revival. 


Slater’s admission, according to her, is something that’s bound to happen because “nakikita rin naman ng mga tao kaming lumalabas. Yes we’re dating, ‘yun lang.” What initially piqued the public’s curiosity about their status were the photos of them seen together on Rachelle’s Instagram account.

 Rachelle underscored that while she fulfills her goals in London, she expects whoever is pursuing her to prove himself to her. “Ako lagi ko namang sinasabi na kailangan focus ako doon at dapat maintindihan kung may nagpu-pursue man sa akin dito dapat maintindihan niya ‘yon at dapat makapaghintay kung sino man ‘yon,” explained the singer who’s also celebrating her 10th year in the business this year.

 With the said admission, the biggest question that remained was what would their setup be during the months that she’s completing the one year run of the musical? “Basta lagi kong sinasabi lalo nung umpisa palang na aalis ako, kung liligawan mo ako mahirap ‘yan!’ Diyan na rin natin makikita ang sincerity nung tao kung kayo talaga para sa isa’t-isa,” the 27-year-old performer said, while adding, “Test na rin ‘yun.”

While she didn’t directly answer how long they have been going out, rumors are that Rachelle and Slater were first introduced to one another during singer Erik Santos’s birthday bash sometime in October of last year.

Rachelle’s last relationship was with John Prats which ended in 2011. Prior to the singer-actor, Rachelle was first in a relationship with Christian Bautista and then Gab Valenciano. 

In a previous interview, Rachelle has been quoted as saying that having a love life is among the many things that she has been praying for. Now, she not only has a love life to boot, but she’s also set to be part of history for snagging a role in Miss Saigon. “Happy ako sa nangyayari ngayon pero ‘yun lang siyempre kailangan alam ko parin ‘yung priorities ko,” she ended.
