They are friends only.
From Billboard Live Q&A:
Fans believed that there is something deeper between the two. Both have worked together when David released his Christmas album last year featuring Charice on one of his song. Also David makes special appearances on some of Charice show just to support her.
But Charice look up to David Archuleta as a great guy, great artist and only as a good friend! Charice denies rumors of romance between her and American Idol cutie David.
Charice you sing love songs w/ so much emotions, are you thinking of somebody while singing? is it David A?
“What a question, what a question. First of all, I’m friend with David Archuleta and he is a great guy. Second, singing love songs with emotion, I think it’s part of being a singer. Every time you sing, you should feel the song even if you’re not in love. You just have to undestand the words.”
“What I do is every time I sing a love song, I’m adapting myself to the song. If it’s a sad song, what if these words happen to me, what if I fail?”
Charice stressed that she always dedicates her performances to her friends and family, but never to a special someone.
“If it’s a love song, I dedicate it to my friends and family but not David Archuleta,” she laughingly clarified.
The host asked if she has a secret romance with Archuleta.
“Oh no, no, no,” Charice quickly said.
The host commented: “A love connection, but not in romantic way.”
She was also linked to Filipino singer Sam Concepcion, but the latter denied it.
Getting into a relationship is also not her priority right now.
“Singing is my life and I’m not going to stop singing. But you know, I have to pursue my goal and that is to finish my studies, that’s my priority,” she said.
