Kris Aquino maintained that there is no chance of getting back with her ex-fiancé, former DILG secretary Mel Sarmiento, who “failed to have the common decency to acknowledge that he hurt Bimb” after their breakup.
The Queen of All Media reacted to showbiz columnist Lolit Solis’ IG post on rumors in line with the former couple’s potential reconciliation. “Balitang baka magka balikan sila Kris Aquino at papa Mel Sarmiento Salve. May mga sign daw na baka bumalik si Papa Mel kay Kris dahil talaga daw love nito ang nanay nila Joshua at Bimby,” Solis wrote in an Instagram post.

In the comment section, Aquino wrote: “No nay… hindi kami nag balikan.”
“Iniwan nya ko Nay, when I was at my lowest and ginawa nya 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?” she continued, adding that she found her answers after a recent FaceTime call, which set things straight for Aquino. “It became clear to me what his true feelings for me had been and how little respect I had left for him.”
The TV host also requested to exclude her children from the issue. “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,” she said.
She later added that it “spoke volumes” when she found out that her sister tried to “hopefully still create a bridge” with Sarmiento and only ended up “snubbed.”
Aquino announced her engagement to Sarmiento in October, and then confirmed their split early this month as she shared an update on her health condition, which affected their relationship. She has been struggling with an autoimmune disease since 2018.
Sarmiento, who has no public social media account, has not publicly addressed their break-up. PhilSTAR L!fe is currently trying to get Sarmiento's side.
