Kris Aquino ‘targeted, deceived’ by ‘someone without conscience’; fears losing trust fund savings for sons
Kris Aquino declared she is now “broken,” fearing she may lose “tens of tax paid millions” she saved up for her sons, Josh and Bimby.
“My PAIN comes from my fear that tens of tax paid millions from my sons’ trust funds,” the Queen of All Media said in a post on Instagram Tuesday, Sept. 25. “Money [I] conscientiously saved for them because [I] made a deathbed promise to my MOM that Kuya Josh & Bimb will always come first, baka mawala lahat ng pinagpaguran ko para sa kanila (all the money that I’ve worked hard for, for them, may soon be gone).”
Her post included a video of her looking tired and worried. She added that she has not posted a recent photo of herself the past six weeks because she is unable to “eat or sleep properly.” She also revealed that her sons may suffer the consequences after she has been targeted and deceived by someone “with no conscience.”

Hirap na hirap po ako na may mga pinagtakpan sa inyo. Pinayuhan akong manahimik hanggang ma kumpleto ang due diligence. I’ve always been HONEST, sometimes to a fault. The reason you haven’t seen me post new pics is because i lost weight in the last 6 weeks, unable to eat or sleep properly… you told me that you admired my STRENGTH- natakot akong baka mawala ang bilib nyo sa kin because i am now broken. But i decided to set myself free & share w/ you what affected me. My family advised me to have FAITH in our legal system. I am grateful to Atty Sig Fortun for taking care of me over 15 years, and i’m fortunate to now have Atty Florin Hilbay as part of my legal team. Broken trust is like shattered glass, as you try to pick up the pieces, your wounds bleed even more. My PAIN comes from my fear that tens of tax paid millions from my sons’ trust funds, money i conscientiously saved for them because i made a deathbed promise to my MOM that Kuya Josh & Bimb will always come first, baka mawala lahat ng pinagpaguran ko para sa kanila. It is WRONG that the 2 BOYS I LOVE MOST, MY LIFE’S MEANING & INSPIRATION may suffer consequences because i chose the wrong person to trust. The settlement or legal battle will now be in the hands of lawyers i RESPECT, auditing and accounting firms i TRUST, and our collective PRAYERS that JUSTICE for my sons will prevail… Everything happens for a reason-maybe God made me experience this humiliation for me to have first hand experience na niloko ako sa pinaghirapan kong pera- dahil nga may BOSES ako at yung boses na yun dapat gamitin para MAGSALITA at IPAGTANGGOL ang mga napipilitang manahimik. I will continue to believe: ang TAMA NILALABAN. 💛
“[Y]ou told me that you admired my STRENGTH,” she told her fans. “[N]atakot akong baka mawala ang bilib nyo sa kin because i am now broken.” (I’m scared you may lose your faith in me because I am now broken.)
Nevertheless, she said her family advised her to have faith in the legal system. Aquino’s legal team includes lawyers Philip Sigfrid “Sig” Fortun and former solicitor general Florin Hilbay.
“The settlement or legal battle will now be in the hands of lawyers [I] RESPECT, auditing and accounting firms [I] TRUST, the word of honor of his deeply shamed mother & sister that all my investments shall be returned,” she said.
While Aquino may appear to be having financial issues now, she has been previously and consistently cited as one of the country’s top taxpayers. She also takes pride in having been financially independent from an early age. JB
