The youngest daughter of former president Cory Aquino will not be drawn in to a war of words with the long-time partner of her second cousin, Tonyboy Cojuangco.
Kris Aquino declined to respond to Gretchen Baretto’s comments which indirectly called the Queen of all Media as a bully.
Instead, she explained why she was letting this pass.
“@aishteru_kyoskite in this issue, i shall choose to look back on the year 1986. @gretchenbarretto may dislike me now, but she campaigned for my mom against the Marcoses. Dedma na sa pagtingin n’ya sa kin. I have stated this time and again – I can look beyond insults against me because it’s part of the territory. But if my mother was treated with respect and my sons weren’t hurt – I am chill. So I can be chill, maybe all of you shoud too ?,” said @krisaquino.

On her Instagram, Barretto made known her position on the squabble between Aquino and former manager Nicko Falcis.
She posted a screenshot of an article titled “Nicko Falcis swears Kris Aquino said: ‘PAPAPATAY KA NG PAMILYA KO’ captioned with her statement on the issue.
“I feel for mr. Nicko Falcis after reading this article. I salute him for his courage to speak the truth , fight for his family name & reputation inspite of the threat to his life No to bullies!!!! STOP POWER TRIPPING ???,” said @gretchenbarretto.
Meanwhile, netizens were quick to notice that Barretto disabled the comment section of her post.
Falcis is facing 44 grounds of qualified theft after allegedly making unauthorized credit card purchases amounting to P1.2 million.
