Gab Valenciano took to social media to confess his shortcomings.
KAMI learned that he also apologized to the people he has hurt throughout the years.
“I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to everyone I may have hurt with my inability to value certain friendships and relationships.
“I haven’t been my true self for a while, and because of that, I demolished beautiful bridges. I strayed away from my family, my passions, my friends and even our almighty God. I am deeply ashamed. I was not raised this way. I am truly sorry.
“I have two extraordinary parents, a radiant and beautiful baby sister, a brother who understands what it means to be a true respectable man, a sister-in-law who has always loved and cared for me, and of course, their little bundle of joy who glues us all together.
“I also happen to have the most epic of friends who inspire me to keep moving forward. There is so much to be thankful for and I will never, ever, take that for granted ever again. I will be better. I promise,” Gab wrote.
His mother, Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano, reposted his viral IG post and made a revelation of her own, admitting that she once tried to take her own life due to the hatred she received from the media.
“I reposted this because it’s publicly posted on his Instagram stories.
“We the Valencianos have been called a godly family, perfect family &many superlatives we never deserved.
“Ours is a normal abnormal family falling, standing up, fighting,reconciling, praying &it has been quite a journey for us.
“I entered showbiz immediately after college&was used to popularity. In high school, I was a student leader, a theater actress & the captain of our volleyball team.
“In college I was on the vb team for 4 years of the AS & the BA teams& the tennis team of BA& active in extra curricular activities. Then I had a breakup & decided to do something crazy.
“I joined the Music & Magic band with Kuh in 1979. I became even more popular & became a commercial model for Camay & a TV host, radio voice talent & guest in various shows.
“FPJ asked me to be his leading lady for Roman Rapido& another film& after I said yes, the contract was drafted & sked approved, I backed out.
“Then I got pregnant& I became Public Enemy Number 1 because the father of my child was the rising star Gary Valenciano.
“I had never experienced such horrible hatred from some members of the media who never asked for my side then& I almost took my life.
“I couldn’t understand why suddenly people hated me. Imagine there was no social media or internet then. If there were, I wouldn’t be alive today, maybe.
“So the fishbowl life nearly killed me. Popularity isn’t what counts to me. Family,friendships & trying to seek God’s will matter most to me.
“I see a pattern .. now it’s my son Gab getting the hate posts but exponentially multiplied because of the internet 1000x. Like Gab I apologize for our own shortcomings.
“God-willing the Vees will learn from our detours& continue to inspire those who are willing to take us - flaws& all.
“Whoever reads this - God bless you. Many of you make me cry with your messages of love.
“I thank God for Gab’s post&I know Romans 8:28 is the truth. I look at our granddaughter Leia &know that our caterpillar experiences will produce butterflies one day.
“Rom8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,who have been called according to His purpose,” Angeli revealed.
Gary and Angeli have been married for over 30 years now.
They have three children – Paolo, Gab and Kiana.
Gab separated from his wife in 2016, allegedly due to infidelity.
