Kris Aquino QUITS!

Kris Aquino is stepping away from the limelight - and the Internet.

The Queen of All Media took to Instagram yesterday, April 9, to announce that she will be quitting social media after a rollercoaster few months filled with controversies, legal battles, and bashing, all of which have not been conducive to her maintaining a steady mental state.

She wrote, "For many months there was a NEED to prove: 'they' (not just the enemies you became aware of, but so many others) didn’t break me, yet in the process of protecting myself, I wasn’t allowing myself to heal. This is a RISK but before coming to this conclusion, I did the math to make sure the people who would be financially affected by my decision to step away, TO LIVE FOR ME, would in no way suffer from my decision."

According to Kris, she will still be pushing through with a number of projects she has on her docket but will not be "putting a show" for the public any longer.

She revealed, "Yes, there are projects I still look forward to happening, and God willing they shall but...I became too good at putting on the 'armor of a warrior' to make sure you mostly saw a HAPPY Kris, a BRAVE Kris, and a PALABAN Kris. She was trained to hide her insecurities, vulnerabilities, and fears."

She continued, "Outwardly, [I was] showing you that I was keeping it together, when deep inside I’ve been consumed by real depression, primarily because of my complicated medical diagnosis. I want to stop pretending I’m okay. I need to make peace with all that’s broken within me, and I need to do that PRIVATELY."

Although the legendary actress-host-social media star has yet to name a specific time for her return, she hints that her hiatus will not last forever. She explained, "I’m sure you’re now making bets on how long this will last BUT I’m taking control, so my return is up to me, when I’m ready. Sana may mababalikan pa ko. Kung wala, wala pong sisihan."

Kris was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria last year. We wish you good health, Queen! <3

Kris' latest big-screen project was the 2018 rom-com "I Love You, Hater" which also starred Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.
