Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has called on government..
It was on Oct. 24 when Aquino surprised fans and followers with an announcement of her engagement to the former politician whom she met through her late brother, former President Ninoy Aquino
Queen of All Media Kris Aquino on Monday revealed that she and her fiance, former Interior secretary Mel Sarmiento, have ended their engagement.
The actress-host took to Instagram to update her millions of followers about her health and how it affected her relationship with the former DILG chief.
“I want to spare myself and my loved ones from further rumors and speculation,” Aquino began. It was on early Monday when fans noticed that she deleted her posts that include Sarmiento from her Instagram handle.
"Sa pinagdadaanan ko ngayon, may tao bang gustong pagusapan pa ang kanyang paghihiwalay?" the actress continued. “But in order for me to be able to peacefully move on, and focus on myself and my health, BECAUSE my sons still need me, Kuya Josh has autism, and Bimb will only turn 18 in 3 years, 3 months, and 16 days, I must end this chapter.”
In the post, Aquino included screenshots of Sarmiento’s last text to her.
A part of Sarmiento’s supposed last text message read: “Given my nature, who loves to go out, I accept the fact that I already have bubble fatigue and I will not be able to, sad to say, be able to continue living in a bubble.”
Sarmiento also emphasized that he refuse to compromise Aquino's health: "On that note, with a heavy heart I accepted your offer of letting me go. For I cannot in conscience be able to accept that something will happen to you that brought about my going out of the bubble. I will always cherish in my heart the happy moments we had together.”
For over three years now, Aquino has been suffering from a rare autoimmune disease which causes her to drastically lose weight.
"Do all the treatments and procedures to help address my drastic weight loss (I now weigh 88 lbs/40 kilos) and if still possible, strengthen my immunity. From last quarter of 2018, I've long known that my autoimmune conditions could only be treated BUT never cured," she shared.
