In a text message sent by Kris, she admitted knowing about the threat since late February. Having earlier cited her health as the reason for leaving show business, she nonetheless cleared that it was not fabricated as she was really experiencing high blood pressure due to the stress brought by the threat.

"Honest truth, I was made aware of this plot late February, early March. My sisters tried to shield me because they didnt want me to have more fear than necessary. If you recall, my sons and I left in March to go abroad for three weeks. The health reasons I cited werent fabricated because the stress coming from the threat had caused my BP to constantly elevate to higher than 150/110," she said.

The Queen of All Media also said that although leaving the business was a painful decision, she did not want to cause others harm hence, she decided to no longer renew her contract with the Kapamilya network to which she was with for almost 20 years.

She said, "I didn't renew with ABS-CBN because of this threat. That was a painful decision, but I needed to make that judgment call so as not to expose others to harm. It was that serious that I walked away from a new two-year contract for a job I've loved for 20 years. I informed my bosses the pertinent facts, but not full details from the intelligence reports, and they kept what I was allowed to relay to them under wraps. I was told to strictly keep the news contained and I obeyed. And I am grateful for the respect I was shown. And to their credit, everybody closest to me  both coworkers, relatives and friends  kept quiet to protect me and because they knew this was a matter to be taken seriously with utmost precaution."

Kris also said that since her family's return to Manila, she and her sons Josh and Bimby have been living with her brother, President Noynoy Aquino, who earlier revealed that Abu Sayyaf allegedly has plots to kidnap Kris and Filipino boxer-congressman Manny Pacquiao.
