It seems things didn’t end well between popular actress-television host Kris Aquino and her former fiancé Mel Sarmiento.

This is based on the comment of Kris on the recent post of veteran showbiz scribe Lolit Solis.

In her recent Instagram post, Lolit talked about the possibility of Kris and Mel reuniting as sweethearts.

It read: “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. In fairness naman kay Kris talagang pag minahal ka niya all out siya para sa iyo. Siguro nga naramdaman ni Papa Mel na sayang kundi bibigyan ng second chance ang kanilang relasyon lalo pa nga at tanggap ng kani kanilang pamilya ang kanilan love sa isa’t isa. Well, love is lovelier the second time around , kaya sige na Kris at Papa Mel, back na kayo sa isa’t isa, kiss and make up na.”

Recently, netizens noticed that Kris made available some of her “deleted” posts that featured the former Department of the Interior and Local Government secretary.

Among those that Kris “unhid” are the “from the very soon to be Aquino-Sarmientos” post, as well as, her appreciation message about waking up beside Mel.

Kris reiterated in her comment: “No nay… hindi kami nag balikan.”

According to Kris, she just felt “peace” in her family, so the past no longer felt like something she needed to erase.

“Iniwan nya ko Nay, when I was at my lowest and ginawa nya yun via text…,” she revealed.

“Matagal akong tahimik na nagdasal questioning if for both of us, was it ever really love or was it just grief, timing, and infatuation?”

Kris revealed she just found out her answers because they finally got to talk over FaceTime audio a few nights ago.

And base on that final conversation, it became clear to her what Mel’s true feelings for her had been and how little respect she had left for him, Kris reiterated.

“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 added.

“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.”

Kris continued that the “final straw” for her was the fact that “kinaya nyang mag imbento ng napakaraming kwento bilang “patunay” na close talaga sila ni Noy.”

“Eh may parang Alvin si Noy, pero kung si Alvin 17 years with me, this person was with my brother for 28 years and kasing detalyado ang calendar of the people, places, events na napuntahan & nakasama ni Noy as Alvin is with me- mas grabe pa yung kanya because from Congress 1998 to the end of Noy’s term in 2016 kumpleto talaga yung listahan.

“Nay, by now kilala mo ko – FAMILY will always come first, kahit may mga tampuhan or misunderstandings, at the end FAMILY loyalty pa rin ang uunahin. i feel OA yung ginawang panggamit sa nananahimik ng patay- kaya it was a relationship na yung entire premise, what led to the closeness was my brother Noy- and because of what i had perceived to be their closeness (background lang: the 2 boys & I lived with Noy for the last 5 weeks before the May 2016 elections and Mel was a constant presence kasi maraming tinatapos na LGU issues). 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…”

Early this year, Kris ended speculations that she and Mel are no longer playing sweet music together.

On Instagram, she uploaded the “last” text message that Mel sent her.

In there, Mel recalled what the doctor cousin of Kris had told him, which is about the responsibility of making sure that the actress won’t get COVID-19 given her autoimmune.

“That’s the reason I decided not to proceed there because I might further put you at risk and I don’t want to be blamed for it,” he said.

According to him, the past few days, he had enough time to think about things and accepted the fact that ensuring Kris doesn’t get COVID-19 is an “enormous responsibility.”

“Given my nature, who loves to go out, I accept the fact that I already have a bubble fatigue and I will not be able to, sad to say, be able to continue living in a bubble,” he continued.

“On that note, with a heavy heart, I accepted your offer of letting me go. For I cannot in conscience be able to accept that something will happen to you brought about my going out of the bubble.”

Mel reiterated that he will always cherish the happy moments with Kris.

“I do love you, but I guess this is goodbye for your life is of the greatest importance given that you have Bimby and Josh to take care of. You will forever be in my heart.”

A few days later, Kris commented “it’s not my loss,” apparently alluding to her controversial split.
