Charice says that she has yet to fix her rift with her mother, Raquel Pempengco, who still hasn't accepted her sexuality.

The two have not been on good terms since the singer admitted that she is a lesbian and is in a relationship with fellow singer Alyssa Quijano.

Hindi siya okay with who I am. Hindi siya okay with my relationship with Alyssa. Walang nagri-reach out, pero may balita kami sa isa’t isa (She's not okay with who I am. She's not okay with my relationship with Alyssa. No one's reaching out, we do hear about each other live's from time to time),” the singer told

However, Charice said that her relationship with Raquel has at least improved.

'Yung sitwasyon, I think mas better. Dati, mas feel mo ang galit (I think our situation now is much better. Before, you could really feel her anger),” she related.

But even if Charice won't get to reconcile with her mom this Christmas, she still believes that they could repair their relationship in the coming years.

“I know they are my family and no matter what, eventually, kami pa rin ang magsasama-sama (I know they are my family and no matter what, eventually, we'll get along with each other again.).”
