The late former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III was linked years ago to fashion stylist Liz Uy.
After he died yesterday at the age of 61, Uy finally shared her reaction to the tragic news.
According to Uy, she still feels honored and humbled of being given the chance to be Aquino’s stylist in the past. She added that she will be forever grateful for Aquino’s selfless leadership for the nation.
“Years ago, I was given the chance to style the man that would be President. To this day, I remain honored and humbled by the privilege.
“Maraming salamat, Mr. President. For your selfless leadership and love for the Filipino people. We are forever grateful,” Uy posted on Instagram.
She also posted on her Instagram stories a black-and-white photo of Aquino with the caption: “rest in peace.”
Aquino said in a past interview that he and Uy were seeing each other although that was the extent of it and they did not become an official couple.
Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III was the 15th President of the Philippines. The late former President Corazon Aquino and the late senator Ninoy Aquino were his parents. Noynoy was admired by many people for his reputation as an incorrupt politician.
Former Pres. Benigno Aquino III was rushed to the hospital on June 24. According to initial reports, the former president was brought to the Capitol Medical Center in Quezon City.
Hours later, it was confirmed by a family member of Aquino that he has passed away at the age of 61. Noynoy was undergoing dialysis months before his death. He also had a heart operation recently.
