- Kris Aquino is involved in a controversy with Nicko Falcis, her former business manager
- Nicko’s mother, Dr. Carol Falcis, posted on social media to express her thoughts on the issue
- Dr. Carol defended her son and accused Kris of being a liar
Kris Aquino is in an ongoing word war with her former business manager Nicko Falcis, who she is accusing of stealing her funds and misusing her investments.
KAMI learned that Nicko’s mother, Dr. Carol Falcis, finally broke her silence on Instagram about the controversy.
The emotional parent, who works as an oncologist, accused Kris of lying and bullying her son.
She also expressed her support for Nicko, who she believes is completely innocent of Kris’ allegations against him.
"For the past 4 months, I have kept my silence because I trusted my kids to be capable enough of defending themselves. I was worried and saddened last year when people believed the lies fostered by Kris Aquino on my dear son, Nicko.
"But the changing sentiments of the majority, including even her once loyal fans, and the messages of love and support of Filipinos in the last few weeks made me cry with tears of joy!
"First, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to all people, especially the netizens, who reached out and gave their unwavering support.
"I want to assure you that your belief in my son is not misplaced - he is truly INNOCENT of the false charges thrown against him! With your support, he has been vindicated!
"Second, my family is not engaging in a trial by publicity.
"May I remind you Kris Aquino that it was you who started it all and engaged in trial by publicity for four months, from September to December 2018.
"If my family is going public, it is only because we have to respond and defend ourselves from your constant lies and especially your death threats.
"How can your lawyers forget the fact that you tried to destroy Nicko’s reputation publicly by posting in your IG, FB, Twitter, and Youtube last Sept. 22, 2018 regarding an alleged 'betrayal of trust' by your financial adviser!
"You implied someone stole your 'life savings' for your sons.
"Behind the scenes, you tried to bully my family into signing one-sided contracts, using as leverage the fact that you can destroy Nicko's reputation even without naming him and more so if you name him!
"Then you used your PAID MINIONS to slowly identify my son - like the 72 y/o Lolit Solis during her radio interview with Arnold Clavio and subsequently in her libelous IG post on Oct. 1!
"In November, you made a BIG FUSS by calling the media to cover you when you filed cases and explicitly named Nicko.
"Isn’t that trial by publicity? How UNFAIR for you to attack my son unrelentingly on social and mainstream media while we kept silent initially because your lawyer Atty. Fortun commanded us to keep quiet and of course, you threatened to have my son KILLED!
"And now you and your lawyers have the gall to say for us to stop posting on social media?
"I know you have been wanting to meet me but thank God we never did. I WAS one of your fans because I liked your 'kaartehan' and I thought you were honest. But now I know you're not!
"I am NOT and NEVER will be a 'DEEPLY EMBARRASSED MOTHER' as you shamelessly claimed in one of your IG posts and 'Kris Life Updates' with Ana Pingol!
"That is completely untrue! I never wrote and i never said to you that I was deeply embarrassed.
"Remember the Ten Commandments, 'THOU SHALT NOT LIE.' You started with lies, we will end it with truths.
"Third, I wish Kris Aquino gets better and pray for her health as she claims she is sick. But remember, NO SICKNESS CAN ever JUSTIFY concocting lies, bullying, and making death threats! I am glad she later admitted in one of her press cons that it was wrong for her to blame my son for her sickness.
"As a mother, I hope she recovers from her autoimmune disease so that she can enjoy life with her sons just as I want to live the rest of my senior life with my kids in peace. I pray she comes to her senses. I have been experiencing anxiety, palpitations, and paranoia about the safety of Nicko ever since her death threats. I am not getting any younger!
"I take inspiration from this quote I found online: 'Sometimes GOD will put a GOLIATH in your life, for you to find the DAVID within you!'
"I pray the spirit of humility, forgiveness, and reconciliation will reign in our hearts and may the Truth be revealed in God’s perfect time,” Carol stated in two separate Instagram posts.
In a previous report by KAMI, Nicko and his brother explained to Lolit Solis why there is a possibility that they might take legal actions against her.
Kris Aquino is known as the “Queen of All Media” due to her success as a movie star, TV actress, talk show host, brand endorser, and social media celebrity.
Her son Bimby is her child with ex-husband James Yap. Her older son, Josh, is Kris’ child with former partner Philip Salvador.
