Slater Young, 26, admitted that the reason why he and Rachelle Ann Go, 28, separated was because of long distance. Rachelle is starring in the West End production of “Miss Saigon” as Gigi in London.
After a month of her stay there, she and Slater, the big winner of “Pinoy Big Brother,” decided to call it quits. They were together since January and broke up in March. They only had a long-distance relationship for about two to three weeks.
Slater said it was difficult to adjust to the time difference and because they were both busy with work. When they argue about small things, it was difficult to fix it because they were apart. “It was just super busy, and then the time difference, hindi talaga, we couldn’t make it work.”
But despite that, he and Rachelle continue to be good friends. His family even likes Rachelle for him, Slater said. His family went to London to watch Rachelle’s play.
The two were rumored to be together early 2014, but Rachelle continued to be mum about it. When asked about Slater in October, during her short vacation here, all she said was they’re okay and they still talk to each other.
Whatever is in their past should remain there. Rachelle said it’s better for the both of them to move forward.
