"No More Bullying. Let’s end this #Krisis because I refuse to be her victim."
Ito ang panimulang pahayag ng finance whiz na si Nicko Falcis sa kanyang Instagram post kanina, January 6.
Ang naturang post ay nauna na niyang ibinahagi sa Facebook kahapon ng umaga, January 5, ilang oras bago naganap ang Instagram Live session ni Kris Aquino tungkol sa isyung kinasasangkutan nilang dalawa.
Si Nicko ang dating managing director ng Kris Cojuangco Aquino Productions (KCAP), ang digital company ni Kris. Siya rin ang nagsilbing talent manager at endorsement closer ng TV host-actress sa loob ng 18 months.
Noong October 12, 2018, inireklamo in Kris si Nicko ng 44 counts of Qualified Theft at Violation of Republic Act No. 8484, o mas kilala bilang Access Devices Regulation Act of 1998.
Inaakusahan ni Kris si Nicko ng pagnanakaw, gamit umano ang credit card ng KCAP, ng halagang P1,270,980.31. Dahil dito, humihingi si Kris ng kabuuang danyos na P32.27 million.
Sa kanyang Facebook post, nanindigan si Nicko na ipagtatanggol niya ang sarili niya mula sa akusasyon ng dating business partner, lalo na't ito ang kanyang itinuturo bilang isang guro sa University of the Philippines.
Si Nicko ay nagtapos bilang cum laude sa kurso niyang Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration and Accountancy sa University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.
Pahayag nito, "As a teacher in UP, I know I have told over thousands of my students to always fight for what is right and what is just.
"Honor always before Excellence as we serve the nation and build our country. And now I’m here, fighting for my personal honor and excellence.
"The past four months have been the most challenging and stressful chapter of my life, and I’m prepared to share my side of the story.
"Remember, I was her Manager who built her so-called queendom online, so the nerd that I am, I always do my homework and prepare for battle here on social media."
Sa pagpapatuloy nito, ibinahagi ni Nicko kung bakit napili nila ng kanyang pamilya na manahimik sa loob ng ilang buwan bago tuluyang ilabas ang kanilang pahayag.
Aniya, "Unlike her, my family and I do not announce nor parade ourselves irresponsibly just to get the attention of people.
"As a family of professionals, we follow the rule of law and we abide by the security protocol advised by my lawyers and family members."
Sa pagpapatuloy ng post ni Nicko, sinabi nitong tila humihingi ng simpatya si Kris sa pagsasapubliko nito ng kanyang health issues.
Kabilang nga rito ang chronic spontaneous urticaria, fibromyalgia, hypertension, at isang thyroid condition na pinaghihinalaang systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Inilista rin nito ang limang beses kung saan binully siya diumano ni Kris.
Lahad niya, "No amount of disease is grave enough to escape the fact that she is the true villain. How can there be discussions or talks when she portrayed herself as the victim when she herself:
"1) Banned me from going to her house / village and even calling me "worse than her ex-husband"
"2) Bullied and harassed everyone around me — even to the point of hiring trolls and PR agency to message each and every friend / follower I have on social media sending links about her accusations — you would be shocked with what her resources can do
"3) Filed baseless cases so she can be a powerful brat/oligarch/bully forcing us into her narrative, even wanting my mom and sister to profusely apologize to her in public. FYI, she even sent advance copies of her webisodes as a threat to us and intimidate us to follow all of her orders
"4) Name dropping all of your connections and and army of lawyers to foreshadow your victory
"5) Her strength with her words and how she spins stories will always be a work of art. If you will deeply analyze, she NEVER denied making grave threats, but her lawyers played her meek i-am-a-mother role to diffuse the allegations."
Ipinahayag din ni Nicko ang pagnanais niyang mawala nang tuluyan si Kris sa kanyang buhay.
"Fabricating the truth is worse than lying. And she mastered that art.
"People do NOT know the real toxic her! And I just want her out of my life.
"She really cannot handle any form of relationships, professional and personal.
"I thought my stellar performance as her Manager would be my shield from her ugly side, but she needed a scapegoat to mask all of her hurt and insecurities."
Sa huli, mariing nanindigan si Nicko na walang basehan at katunayan ang mga paratang ni Kris laban sa kanya.
Aniya, "I would like to emphasize that her allegations against me are false and without basis.
"The cases she filed against me are but a part of her scheme to coerce me into involuntarily submitting to her will and complying with her unreasonable demands, including that I and members of my family execute the documents she intended for our signatures.
"In the process, because I have not complied with her demands, she threatened to kill me if I return to the Philippines, destroyed my good name and reputation, and caused me and my family great hardship."
