Philippine Queen of all Media, Kris Aquino (age 47), said that she will definitely not run for senator in 2019.
The affirmation was posted by Kris Aquino on her Instagram account on September 22, 2018.
Kris said that her commitments as a product endorser keeps her from seeking any national elective post in 2019.
According to Kris Aquino, several multinational and Philippine conglomerate contracts prevent her from any “divisive political participation, comments, or posts except when defending the honor of self, immediate family – meaning the memories of my parents, my siblings, and my sons.”
Kris Aquino added that it’s unfair to her cousin, Senator Bam Aquino, that her name was included in a Pulse Asia poll, when she had clearly stated that she will not run for the Senate in 2019.
In the said post, Kris Aquino also revealed that she is presently suffering from financial abuse and betrayal from someone who earned millions from running her production company, Kris Cojuangco Aquino Productions (KCAP), and from negotiating her endorsements.
Kris Aquino said she has hired two brilliant lawyers, Atty. Sig Fortun and Atty. Florin Hilbay to be her legal team in pursuing justice in the said matter.

I’ve taken pride in my professionalism, my 100% honesty about financial dealings, and my total respect for endorsement contracts.
Direcho na- alam kong pumalpak ako in the past sa personal life so bumabawi ako ng bongga sa trabaho ko at sa pagsusumikap na maging mabuting ina. [I will go straight to the point – I know I failed in the past in my personal life so I try to recover greatly in my work and in my effort to be a good mother.]
Because of this allow me to firmly say that I won’t seek any national elective post in 2019.
I am the only parent providing for the financial & emotional well being of Kuya Josh is in the autism spectrum & will need lifelong care, therapy & intervention; and my bunso [youngest], Bimb is only 11 years old. Hindi po ako tatakbo para sa senado in 2019. [I will not run for the senate in 2019.]
From the start I have openly stated that several multinational & Philippine conglomerate contracts prevent me from any “divisive political participation, comments, or posts except when defending the honor of self, immediate family – meaning the memories of my parents, my siblings, and my sons.”
It is unfair to my cousin @bamaquino that in this Pulse Asia poll an Aquino who has stated many times that she won’t run for the senate in 2019 had to be included… super clear statement & w/ zero room for misinterpretation.
In the 6 weeks that i quietly suffered because of financial abuse & betrayal we uncovered being done to me by someone I had complete trust & faith in, not to mention the millions he earned from running KCAP & negotiating my endorsements – the stress, inability to eat & sleep properly caused my weight to drop to under 54 kilos.
I apologize to all my endorsements & KCAP brand partners for paying the price of an unhealthy Kris Aquino struggling to again find her inner warrior.
I’ve asked 2 brilliant legal minds- Atty Sig Fortun & Atty Florin Hilbay to take charge of my legal team in my quest for justice.
I shall pray to stop blaming myself for being made a fool of, because it is a life lesson of knowing when & how much to trust, and how to place safeguards to protect myself & my business interests.
