Charice and Alyssa Quijano Nagtanan
Is it true that Charice eloped with former “X Factor” finalist Alyssa Quijano of the girl group AKA Jam?
The answer, DENIED by Charice’s mother Raquel Pempengco.
In a text message sent to ABS-CBN News, Raquel defended Charice but also admitted that Alyssa's mother asked for her help as her daughter ran away with two other girls.
“Tumawag po sa akin yung mommy nung girl... Asking po for help... Nakatakas daw po kasi kahapon ng madaling araw, na may nakakita na dalawang babae din in a gray car. Nagpapatawag po ng media dahil 'yun daw po ang akala niyang makakatulong para makita niya ang anak niya,” she said.

Raquel also asked the public not to jump into conclusions that the girl who took Alyssa was indeed Charice.
“Kung ako po ang tatanungin di ko po masasabing tanan 'yun coz we are not sure if it's really Charice who got her... Hangga’t hindi po mismo natin naririnig kay Charice ang totoong pagkatao niya... Para sa akin ‘di po dapat mag-judge dahil sa physical appearance lang,” she said.
