“Crazy Rich Asians” cast member Kris Aquino is currently embroiled in controversy in the Philippines. She has been accused of several things, the latest is of which is having threatened several Filipino celebrities including Korina Sanchez, Ricky Lo, Mocha Uson, James Deakin and James Yap.
The accusation was from Aquino’s former project manager Nicko Falcis. The hullabaloo started when Aquino accused Falcis of using the credit card of her company Kristina C. Aquino Productions for personal expenditures.
In November 2018, Aquino filed complaints of qualified theft and violation of the Access Devices Regulation Act against Falcis. The latter denied the allegations and made several revelations that even fueled the controversy.
First, Falcis accused Aquino of funding a social media campaign to protect her brother former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III against internet trolls. The latter did not deny this.
Second, Falcis released an audio recording of a phone conversation he had with Kris. In the audio, the latter can be heard making threats against the former.
Again, Kris did not deny that the voice making threats against Falcis in the audio belonged to her. On January 16, 2019, she took to Instagram to explain this.
As written in the Instagram post, Kris described the controversy as a “badly orchestrated demolition job being funded by personalities out for political revenge.” Falcis quickly took to Instagram to respond to this.

I thought you’re a professional, but all you are is a spoiled girl who can’t deal with rejection and abandonment. All throughout this traumatic experience, I still ensured I protect our businesses and stakeholders first and foremost, but you just threw it all out just so you can be the bully and brat even in business. You can’t handle even the best out of any relationships. How can I steal credit card purchases or even investments, which everybody knows are all intact and running??? You used on me your usual tactics of money and power to threaten the people who go against you — I saw it all, Korina, Ricky Lo, Mocha, James (Deakin and Yap), etc. When you threatened my life, you said you would go and attack me in all directions. I thought people are going to abandon me, but instead they’re all supporting me, so much more than I ever imagined. I was so surprised that even the brands (agencies, bosses, managers) reached out to me saying they believe everything my family and I are saying. THANK YOU PO SA LAHAT! No More Bullying. Let’s end this #Krisis because I refuse to be her victim.
Aside from describing Kris as “a spoiled girl who can’t deal with rejection and abandonment,” Falcis accused the “Crazy Rich Asian” actor of threatening the people who go against her. Here are the people he enumerated and their respective Instagram accounts:
Kris has yet to respond to this most recent accusation. Meanwhile, here is Falcis explaining how the “Crazy Rich Asian” actor bullied him:
