Kris Aquino sues

Manila Times - - News -

chose to spread ma­li­cious lies and false­hoods... I wanted to qui­etly put this painful chap­ter be­hind me... Ki­lala nyo napo ako—hindi ako ang nag­sisim­ula ako pinalaki para urun­gan ang pakikipagla­ban para sa ka­to­to­hanan. tat­a­pusin ko ( You know me — I was not the one who started this fight, but I was not raised to back off from the quest for truth. You started it, I will fin­ish it), “Aquino’s post read.

On Septem­ber 25, the 47- year- old ac­tress shared that she was un­able to eat or sleep prop­erly and had lost 15 pounds in a month.

She sought med­i­cal at­ten­tion in Sin­ga­pore and was di­ag­nosed to be suf­fer­ing from an au­toim­mune disease — bchronic spon­ta­neous ur­ticaria — which is ag­gra­vated by stress, ac­cord­ing to her doc­tors.

In the post, Aquino said the phys­i­cal toll was a re­sult of a busi­ness- re­lated or­deal and “dev­as­tat­ing pain of lost trust.”

She then dis­closed that she was seek­ing jus­tice for “fi­nan­cial abuse and be­trayal” that was com­mit­ted by some­one close to her, and who had al­ready earned mil­lions from run­ning her me­dia com­pany Kris Co­juangco Aquino Pro­duc­tions ( KCAP), which is cur­rently be­hind her dig­i­tal em­pire.

Con­sult­ing her lawyers Sig For­tun and Florin Hil­bay on what le­gal ac­tion to take, Aquino said she was par­tic­u­larly af­fected by the mat­ter be­cause the trust funds of her two sons Josh and Bimbi were in­volved.

“My pain comes from my fear that tens of tax paid mil­lions from my sons’ trust funds, money I con­sci­en­tiously saved for them be­cause I made a deathbed prom­ise to my mom [ late for­mer Pres­i­dent Co­ra­zon Aquino] that Kuya [ Big Brother] Josh and Bimbi will al­ways come first, baka mawala la­hat ng pinag­pagu­ran ko para sa kanila ( but I fear that all that I had worked hard for will be lost). It is wrong that the 2 boys I love most, my life’s mean­ing and in­spi­ra­tion may suf­fer con­se­quences be­cause I was tar­geted and de­ceived by a per­son with no con­science,” she wrote.

“The set­tle­ment or le­gal bat­tle will now be in the hands of lawyers I re­spect, au­dit­ing and ac­count­ing firms I trust, the word of honor of his deeply shamed mother and sis­ter that all my in­vest­ments shall be re­turned, and our col­lec­tive prayers that jus­tice for my sons will pre­vail,” Aquino said. Nicko Fal­cis be­hind theft? As re­ported by The Manila Times En­ter­tain­ment on Satur­day, it was vet­eran show busi­ness per­son­al­ity Lolit So­lis who re­vealed in ra­dio an­chor Arnold Clavio’s “Sino?” seg­ment on DZBB that it is her man­ager Nicko Fal­cis, whom Kris re­garded as a busi­ness part­ner, who em­bez­zled her in­vest­ments.

Ear­lier re­ports said the ac­tress-en­gaged the ser­vices of Fal­cis as man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of her dig­i­tal me­dia com­pany, Kris Co­juangco Aquino Pro­duc­tions.

Fal­cis was also re­port­edly re­spon­si­ble for Aquino’s “Crazy Rich Asians” gig.

The web­site Push, ABSCBN’s dig­i­tal en­ter­tain­ment arm, quoted sources as far back as De­cem­ber 31, 2017 that Fal­cis was the rea­son why Aquino left good friend Boy Abunda as tal­ent man­ager.

The ar­ti­cle posted on that date said, “Si Nicko Fal­cis ang bagong man­ager ngayon ni Kris. Siya ang re­spon­si­ble kung bakit ang earn­ings ni Kris sa dig­i­tal me­dia ay malapit kinita niya in tra­di­tional TV pag­dat­ing ng Fe­bru­ary 2018 ( Nicko Fal­cis is Kris’ new man­ager. He was re­spon­si­ble for mak­ing her earn­ings from dig­i­tal me­dia nearly ex­ceed those from tra­di­tional TV by Fe­bru­ary 2018).”
