Queen of All Media Kris Aquino (age 47) filed 9 counts of cyber libel at the DOJ against Attorney Jesus Nicardo Falcis III on Nov 22, 2018.

Atty. Falcis is the brother of Nicko Falcis II (age 35), the former manager of her company, Kris C. Aquino Productions (KCAP), whom she earlier accused of allegedly stealing PHP 1.27 million through “unauthorized use” of a company credit card.

Kris Aquino posted on Instagram, the statement coming from her lawyer, Atty. Ricky dela Cruz of Divina Law, regarding the cyber libel case.

In the statement, Atty. dela Cruz said that Atty. Falcis made “malicious and defamatory statements” against Kris and that Kris opted to respond to the accusations through the legal process.

Here’s the full statement from Atty dela Cruz regarding the cyber libel case against Atty. Jesus Falcis III:

Statement from Atty. Ricky dela Cruz of DIVINA LAW:

We filed criminal cases for 9 counts of cyberlibel today at the DOJ against Atty. Jesus Nicardo Falcis III. He made malicious and defamatory statements against our client, Ms. Kris Aquino. We will now now make him accountable.

Ms. Kris Aquino opted to respond to the malicious accusations hurled against her through the legal process. Because she believes that this is the right thing to do. She has full faith in the Philippine justice system. She knows that we are all equal in the eyes of the law.

Ms. Kris respects our prosecutors and she now leaves it to them to start the legal process. We believe that Ms. Kris Aquino will get JUSTICE because TRUTH IS ON HER SIDE.

Kris Aquino cases against the Falcis brothers

Kris Aquino filed 44 counts of qualified theft against Nicko Falcis on October 12, 2018 in 7 cities in Metro Manila including Quezon City, Manila, San Juan, Mandaluyong, Pasig, Makati, Taguig.

She is suing him for a total of P32.27 million in damages.

In response to Kris Aquino’s accusations, Atty. Jesus Falcis III held a press conference, saying that his brother Nicko cannot come home from abroad because Kris Aquino allegedly threatened him with these words: “You f**king a**hole Nicko, dare to step in this country and you will be dead.”

Atty. Falcis said that Nicko closed 54 brands for Kris Aquino, helping her become a digital star, after her fallout from her former home network, ABS-CBN. Nicko was also reportedly responsible for getting the pivotal role that Kris Aquino played in the worldwide hit, “Crazy Rich Asians”.

Aside from the press conference, Atty. Falcis also posted a series of statements on his Instagram account, which throw shade at Kris Aquino, calling her “Rich Girl Gone Crazy ala Gone Girl”, a “spoiled oligarch brat”, and “Kris the liar”.

In his latest IG post, Atty Falcis said his brother was not able to spend his birthday in the Philippines because of Kris Aquino’s threat. He said, “Ms. Aquino, you stole my brother! All because of your vindictiveness against him for leaving you.”

Missing my brother so much on my birthday salubong. Thank God we have the internet and modern technology to bridge the gap.

Kahit napilitan sya mag abroad dahil sa pagbabanta ni Ms. Aquino, at least nakasama ko pa din sya at nakapag birthday celebration kami ng live.

Ms. Aquino, you stole my brother! All because of your vindictiveness against him for leaving you.

Sa totoo lang, naaawa ako sayo. You grew up without a father figure and forced into the limelight. Kaya ayan, gusto mo lagi may lalaki sa buhay mo, center of attention ka, at hindi mo kayang iniiwan ka. Tapos lagi mo po ginagawang pa victim ang narrative mo, from Joey Marquez (kahit mali alam ng public) to my brother.

Tapos may patawa ka pa na post na my brother’s credit card charges violated your endorsement deals? Haha ang hindi pagkain ng ibang chicken aside sa Chowking eh personal obligation mo. BTW Ms. Aquino, kamusta yung mga kinain mong Bon Chon, Jollibee, at Pancake House?

Mahirap maging anak ni Ninoy at Cory. Pero ok naman lumabas yung iba mong mga kapatid. Bat ikaw naging ganyan?

Translation from 2nd paragraph: [ Even if he was forced to leave for abroad because of the threat by Ms. Aquino, at least I was still able to be with him and we had a birthday celebration live.]

Ms. Aquino, you stole my brother! All because of your vindictiveness against him for leaving you.

[ In truth, i pity you. You grew up without a father figure and forced into the limelight. That’s why, you always want a man in your life, so you would be the center of attention and you cannot take it when he leaves you. Then you always make your narrative appear like you’re a victim, from Joey Marquez ( even if what the public knows is wrong) to my brother.

[ Then, you have a funny post where you say my brother’s credit card charges violated your endorsement deals? Haha, not eating chicken aside from Chowking is your personal obligation. BTW, Ms. Aquino, how are the food that you ate, like Bon Chon, Jollibee, and Pancake House?]

[ It is hard to be a daughter of Ninoy and Cory. Your other siblings turned out fine. How did you become like that?]

I am sorry that i do not fit the “mold” of what most people have come to admire in my family. I am not simple. I do not keep quiet when attacked. I am not private. and I don’t play down what I’ve achieved because I have had to be fierce in order to survive. I also do not subscribe to the belief that people should be allowed to just tell their lies since eventually the truth comes out anyway, because in my opinion we are only sure of NOW.

I know everything about me can be scrutinized because I chose a high profile career. The millions I earn give you the right to judge me, my past, my mistakes, and even my choice in men… yet nobody can ever justifiably say that there is anything remotely questionable about my financial dealings, my trustworthiness about money, and most especially the transparency and absolute spotlessness of my BIR tax records.

I have heard all the insults BUT the 1 thing that has never stuck is that kris aquino is a liar. Drama queen, possible… but definitely not lying queen and never magnanakaw queen [ Queen of Thieves ].

On Monday morning with an apology in advance to Mayor Herbert Bautista and Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, I shall again need to step on your turf because the Quezon City Hall of Justice is within your compound.

I was brought up to respect the rule of law, my father gave his life for that principle. And I am also my mother’s daughter, so I shall be exercising my constitutional right to defend my dignity and honor. Pinalaki po akong hinaharap, hindi tinataguan ang lahat ng mga kaso. [ I was brought up to face, not hide frome all the cases. ]

P.S. To my followers, my lovers, and also my haters: Divina Law and Atty Sig Fortun gave me strict instructions to turn off commenting for this post so as not to be accused of using public opinion to strengthen my cases. Monday morning, November 19, 2018 shall anyway come soon enough for even more of my truth to be heard in the proper forum.

To the other Instagram posts of Atty. Falcis, Kris mostly kept quiet and posted a short video on IG, which says being enlightened and empowered is the best version of herself. She also said that her smile is her most effective weapon.
