In an interview from TV Patrol last January 15, Kris Aquino admitted that Kim Chiu confided to her about her trouble with Maja Salvador who’s currently romantically linked to her ex-flame Gerald Anderson. The Queen of All Media said that she understands why Kim felt disappointed towards her fellow Ina Kapatid Anak co-star. But at this point, Kris encouraged Kim to be happy with all the blessings she’s getting in all aspects of her life.
“I’m not going to deny na nakausap ko si Kim recently. Ang sinabi ko lang kay Kim, ‘You are in such a good place right now. Kung nasa’n ka man ngayon, dun ka mag-focus, kasi hindi mo naman maibabalik ang nakaraan. And sabi ko, the last thing I want is for people to think that she's bitter,” said Kris who remained close friends with Kim after they worked together in Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo (2011).
Kris previously revealed on Kris TV that Kim told her that it took her a long time to let any guy into her life because of the pain she experienced with Gerald. Incidentally, it was the same episode where Kim appeared with Maja who told Kris about Xian Lim’s courtship of Kim. To which Kris said, “Kimmy, how nice! Ako natutuwa kasi parang ang tagal mong heartbroken. Ang tagal mo ayaw magbigay ng chance. A year ago sinabi mo sa akin ayaw mo muna mag-entertain dahil respeto sa sarili. Dahil ayaw mo muna magpabola. I remember that nung nagpunta ako sa bahay mo. Tapos umiyak ako nung sinabi mo yun. Eh ngayon, yey!”
But as it turns out, Kim and Maja’s friendship has suffered because of the latter’s romantic involvement with Gerald. As Kim previously stated in her interview, “Nagulat ako, hindi ko inexpect na mangyayari itong ganito. Di ba parang, ‘Bakit?’ Hindi naman ako bitter kung ano man nangyayari sa kanila. I’m happy for them. Parang nalungkot lang ako kasi yung taong sinabihan ko nung time na down ako, dun sa....Yun, parang, kinain niya lang yung sinabi niya.”
In the meantime, the fans of the three young stars are obviously divided because of what happened.
