Kris Aquino has come to the defense of her eldest son Joshua “Josh” Aquino, who is now the subject of malicious rumors.
The Queen of All Media just recently reunited with Josh after being away from each other for two months, as Josh has been living away in the province. And gossips say his reason for that is because he has gotten a girlfriend pregnant and is set to marry.
Showbiz insider Ogie Diaz first addressed the issue on his vlog and slammed the people who started it. To show her appreciation, Kris thanked Ogie through an Instagram post and cleared up the speculations as well.
“Gift ni Kuya Josh? Sorry, hindi apo. He gave me cash in a lucky red envelope — an ANGPAO,” Kris began.
“Like any parent, initially nung pinakita sa ‘kin ‘yung YT (YouTube) fake news about Kuya, nagalit ako... Then pinanood ko ang kumpareng @ogie_diaz ko sa vlog niya, and may tumatak sa ‘kin. Ogie said words to the effect na ‘Hindi naman natin tinatanggal ang posibilidad na maging tatay ang panganay ni Kris’ and dun ako nahimasmasan,” said Kris.
She continued to thank her friend for always having Josh’s back and how her son’s condition was used against his benefit.
“Thank you, Pare, for all the years that Kuya Josh, because he is in the autism spectrum, was made a punching bag on social media, just because it was convenient when people wanted to play dirty politics. You made me feel that you saw him as a human being with the same right to love and be loved like everyone else... Many parents who raised or are raising children with special needs will identify with me... We know the challenges and we celebrate the victories. Kuya’s desire for independence now is a WIN!” she wrote.
Kris added, “Tanggap namin na malabong mangyari for Josh to have a wife and children. Pero marunong talaga ang langit... Binubuhusan siya ng sobra sobrang pagmamahal ng lahat ng mga pinsan ko at kapitbahay niya ngayon sa Tarlac, because his HEART is pure and his affection is REAL.”
Josh is Kris’ son with action star Philip Salvador. Her other child, James “Bimby” Aquino-Yap, is her son with ex-husband basketball player James Yap.
