Kris and Philip first met in 1994 while making the movie Nandito Ako. She was 23 then while Philip was 17 years older. Kris soon got pregnant with Joshua but their relationship eventually ended in 1999.
“She's still the mother of my son. I respect her and I will always respect her for the rest of my life. That is my statement," Philip said, according to ABS-CBN News. (Read: ‘I will always respect her’: Phillip Salvador responds to Kris Aquino’s tirade)
During Kris’s live video session, she said that she used to say nothing but good words towards him because she thought that he was a good man. She pointed out that he could have been more sensitive not to include her name in the joke that was done in bad taste.
“Sana naisip mo, that line — ‘Naloko mo si Kris Aquino’ — what does that make of your son? Produkto siya ng panloloko?” she said.
According to Kris, the last time Josh and Philip met was at the ABS-CBN compound in 2012. In a comment in Lolit Solis’s post, she said that she’s hurt by the joke because their son also saw the video and understood the context.
“May YouTube kasi & maraming versions ang napanood ni Kuya Josh nung ‘skit’... (...) Pero iba ang lalim ng feelings ng bata na may autism. What they cannot verbally express, they feel so deeply,” she said.
“Nakita ko yung iPad search history — puro tatay niya ang lumabas. Alam niya what NABOLA means. Tinanong ako — Mama, bad si Dada Ipe? Kung nakita mo lang yung lalim ng mata at yung sobrang lungkot ni Kuya,” she added
