ICYMI, Kris Aquino and former DILG Secretary Mel Sarmiento have broken up after being caught in a whirlwind romance. According to the TV host-actress, she has no plans of getting back together with her ex-fiancé, especially since she felt used by the former politician. 

"No nay, hindi kami nag balikan," said Kris, who commented on Lolit Solis' recent IG post about her possible reconciliation with Mel. "Iniwan niya 'ko Nay, when I was at my lowest and ginawa niya yun via text. Matagal akong tahimik na nagdasal questioning if for both of us, was it ever really love or was it just grief, timing, and infatuation? I found MY answers because we finally got to talk over FaceTime audio a few nights ago."

Kris Aquino and Mel Sarmiento split

In case you didn't know, the Queen of All Media is battling an autoimmune disease. Mel broke up with her because he said he didn't want to put Kris at risk of contracting COVID-19 since he is usually out and about. 


Based on the last conversation they had, Kris said that it became clear to her "what his true feelings for me had been and how little respect I had left for him." 

She continued: "Let's not involve my sons, because Mel failed to have the common decency to acknowledge that he hurt bimb and never once checked on how my son was taking all of this. It spoke volumes to me nung nalaman ko from my Ate that she had tried several times to message Mel trying to find a way to communicate with him & hopefully still create a bridge but he actually snubbed my Ate." 

For Kris, the "final straw" was when Mel allegedly made up stories about his close relationship with her brother, late former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.  She said, "I feel OA yung ginawang panggamit sa nananahimik ng patay."

The TV host ended her comment by saying that she's ready to move on: "So paano mag babalikan sa taong hindi mo na pinagkakatiwalaan at ngayon alam mo nang hindi ka minahal at ginamit ka lamang? The End, Nay... Move on na..."
