Dinamay pa kasi si Mar! Kris’ feud with Korina leads to rift with PNoy
Kris Aquino ended up hurting her brother, former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, when she attacked Korina Sanchez for featuring her ex-husband on her television show.
A source told Politiko that Noynoy was displeased when Kris dragged former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas in her tirade against Sanchez over her feature on cager James Yap for “Rated K” last April.
The source said Noynoy felt there was no need for Kris to mention Roxas in her rant against Sanchez because he had no hand in airing the segment on Yap.
While Kris is known to speak her mind, Noynoy felt her mention of Roxas reflected poorly on him since he had endorsed Sanchez’s husband for president in the 2016 elections.
Noynoy and Roxas also both belong to the Liberal Party.
On April 22, Kris called out Sanchez on Instagram for airing a feature on Yap and his growing family with girlfriend Michaela Cazzola.
“Sampal sa mukha ko ang inilabas na feature ngayong gabi nung misis ni Mar Roxas. Yes pinepersonal ko dahil binuwis ko ang kinabukasan namin ng mga anak ko ng walang inasahang kapalit. At ang ganti sa kin at sa mga anak ko ngayon ay binida pa ang deadbeat na tatay…,” part of Kris’ post read.
Yap is the father of Kris’ son James Yap Jr., popularly known as Bimby.
A day after her rant, Kris apologized on Instagram to Noynoy, Roxas and even President Rodrigo Duterte.
“I do sincerely apologize to my brother. And I apologize to President Duterte. And Mar, to you i am sorry. In the same way i would always wonder why i would be dragged into issues not of my doing- i was guilty of that tonight,” she said.
On Wednesday (July 18), Kris revealed she was not on speaking terms with Noynoy for the past three months.
She said their rift only ended when she reached out to Noynoy to visit her eldest son, Joshua, in the hospital.
“Sa bawat pag-ospital, si Tito Noy was always there. Kinapalan ko po ang mukha ko today- nag-text ako. Umamin na alam kong na hurt ko sya pero nakiusap- KAILANGAN siya ni kuya josh. My son needed him- the ONLY constant male figure in his life,” she said.
Heeding Kris’ request, Noynoy visited Josh at the hospital, where the actress snapped the photo she posted on Instagram.
