Kris Aquino mulls legal action against person who allegedly siphoned off money from her company: "i shall pray to stop blaming myself for being made a fool of, because it is a life lesson of knowing when & how much to trust, and how to place safeguards to protect myself & my business interests."


Kris Aquino revealed she already met with her two lead legal counsels who are giving her advice about her complaint against an unnamed person who allegedly siphoned off money from her company.

In her caption for an Instagram post shared today, September 25, Kris mentioned she already had a “lengthy meeting” with Atty. Sig Fortun and Atty. Florin Hilbay last night, Monday.

This seemed to be in relation to Kris’s Instagram post last Saturday, September 22—which she has since edited and updated—when she admitted to having suffered “financial abuse & betrayal” by someone who was in charge of running her production company Kris Aquino Cojuangco Productions (KCAP) and negotiating her endorsements.

Her post read in part: "In the 6 weeks that i quietly suffered because of financial abuse & betrayal we uncovered being done to me by someone i had complete trust & faith in, not to mention the millions he earned from running KCAP & negotiating my endorsements—the stress, inability to eat & sleep properly caused my weight to drop to under 54 kilos.

"I apologize to all my endorsements & KCAP brand partners for paying the price of an unhealthy Kris Aquino struggling to again find her inner WARRIOR.

"I've asked 2 BRILLIANT legal minds—Atty Sig Fortun & Atty Florin Hilbay to take charge of my legal team in my quest for JUSTICE.

"i shall pray to stop blaming myself for being made a fool of, because it is a life lesson of knowing when & how much to trust, and how to place safeguards to protect myself & my business interests."

(EDITED 3:53PM, Sunday, Sept 23) i’ve taken pride in my professionalism, my 100% honesty about financial dealings, and my total respect for endorsement contracts. Direcho na- alam kong pumalpak ako in the past sa personal life so bumabawi ako ng bongga sa trabaho ko at sa pagsusumikap na maging mabuting ina. Because of this ALLOW ME TO FIRMLY SAY THAT I WON’T SEEK ANY NATIONAL ELECTIVE POST IN 2019. i am the only parent providing for the financial & emotional well being of Kuya Josh is in the autism spectrum & will need lifelong care, therapy & intervention; and my bunso, Bimb is only 11 years old. HINDI PO AKO TATAKBO PARA SA SENADO IN 2019. From the start i have OPENLY stated that several multinational & Philippine conglomerate contracts prevent me from any “divisive political participation, comments, or posts except when defending the honor of self, immediate family-meaning the memories of my parents, my siblings, and my sons.” It is unfair to my cousin @bamaquino that in this Pulse Asia poll an Aquino who has stated many times that SHE won’t run for the senate in 2019 had to be included... SUPER CLEAR STATEMENT & w/ zero room for misinterpretation.?????????????????? In the 6 weeks that i quietly suffered because of financial abuse & betrayal we uncovered being done to me by someone i had complete trust & faith in, not to mention the millions he earned from running KCAP & negotiating my endorsements- the stress, inability to eat & sleep properly caused my weight to drop to under 54 kilos. I apologize to all my endorsements & KCAP brand partners for paying the price of an unhealthy Kris Aquino struggling to again find her inner WARRIOR. I’ve asked 2 BRILLIANT legal minds- Atty Sig Fortun & Atty Florin Hilbay to take charge of my legal team in my quest for JUSTICE. i shall pray to stop blaming myself for being made a fool of, because it is a life lesson of knowing when & how much to trust,and how to place safeguards to protect myself & my business interests.
