Contrary to rumors, Kris Aquino and Herbert Bautista just met at a church and were not booked at the same hotel.
About a month ago, Kris Aquino went to Italy for a pilgrimage and visited the holy places she has always wanted to see. But rumors circulated that she went to meet her ex-boyfriend, Quezon City mayor Herbert Bautista, who was reportedly booked at the same hotel.
During her press conference for her latest endorsement, she clarified with the entertainment press that their meeting was “wholesome.”
“I did see him when we were in Italy, pero very wholesome and prayerful, kasi sa Assisi kami nagkita. So, yung lumabas doon na item, no, we did not stay in the same hotel,” she said.
“Walang Roman Holiday na naganap kasi super-dasal naman ang ginawa namin. And hindi kami naka-dinner, nakapag-merienda lang kami. Yun lang naman, that’s it, but yung rest of it, we remain friends,” she added.
Kris and Herbert were romantically linked in 2014 and admitted that they had a short-lived romance. She also said they’re just friends and he even gave her lechon when he learned that she got injured.

“He was very kind. Nung Monday, dahil nalaman niya na naaksidente ako, nagpadala siya ng lechon,” she shared.
"How very pulitiko!” she quipped. “Kung malungkot ako o not feeling well, nagle-lechon ako. Naha-happy ako,” she added.
