The ever controversial multimedia star, Kris Aquino, took to social media to clear out speculations that she allegedly wore a necklace from the seized jewelry collection of Imelda Marcos.
A number of websites, as well as in major social networking services, posted a picture of the necklace she wore at a previous event, next to what netizens believe is a quite similar necklace from the collection of former First Lady Imelda Marcos.
On the mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service Instagram, Kris Aquino posted about the necklace she wore on a dinner during the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) sumit last year. The alleged necklace is from the Italian luxury brand “Bottega Veneta.”
Kris Aquino posted, “It seems you don’t want me to stay quiet and your trolls want to keep perpetuating lies about me. My friend JC Buendia & my sister Viel both showed me this paulit ulit na FB post. The necklaces supposedly belonged to Mrs Marcos & I was brazen enough to wear them for the APEC DINNER. Duh? The necklace I wore was made from cubic zirconia & silver- hindi po DIAMONDS, in other words fake sila although Bottega Veneta naman. ENOUGH! And the TRUTH is on my side- including credit card receipts.”
“Even if my necklaces aren’t appropriate for showing how you can remove more than 100 different types of stains- what the heck, isusuot ko na sila, after all I paid for them w/ hard earned, tax paid income, and hindi ko na problema kung yung pagnanakaw ng iba trip nilang ibintang/pagtakpan using me- and to be perfectly clear, I’m not referring to Mrs. Marcos. So this is FAIR WARNING- stop lying about me if you don’t want your rotting skeletons unearthed. #IAMBACK”
Last December, the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) clarified this issue, stating that it would be impossible for Kris Aquino to be wearing a piece of the seized jewelry from the Marcoses, when it was kept in a vault.
PCGG commissioner Andrew de Castro said: “It’s impossible to have been taken from the Central Bank vault and returned just in time for our appraisal the week after… looks completely different.”
