The issue started when the actress was seen wearing a necklace that looked like it was made from diamonds during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit here in the Philippines last year.
Many fake news site posted the photo of the youngest Aquino sibling wearing the necklace, which was one of the sequestered jewelry collection of the Marcos family.
The said collection of precious jewelries has been under the care of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).
Enraged Aquino said, after getting tired of the fake news and bashing, “It seems you don’t want me to stay quiet and your trolls want to keep perpetuating lies about me.”
She added, “Duh? The necklace I wore was made from cubic zirconia and silver- hindi po diamonds, in other words fake sila although Bottega Veneta naman (not diamonds, in other words they are fake although they are bought from Bottega Veneta.)”
Moreover, Aquino stated that the truth is on her side and that she had the credit card receipts of her necklace. She also warned her bashers to stop spreading the fake news.
“And hindi ko na problema kung yung pagnanakaw ng iba trip nilang ibintang/pagtakpan using me,” she said. (It is no longer my problem if other people want to use/blame me to cover what the others stole.)
Meanwhile, the issue has long been denied by Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG).
According to PCGG Commissioner Andrew de Castro, “It’s impossible to have been taken from the Central Bank vault and returned just in time for our appraisal the week after. It looks completely different.”
