MANILA -- Zsa Zsa Padilla, who has called off her engagement with architect Conrad Onglao, has turned to good friend Kris Aquino for support.
On Tuesday, Aquino posted on Instagram a photo of Padilla with her sons Joshua and James "Bimby" Yap Jr.
Aquino said Padilla "came by" to visit them.
"We've been friends for 20 years. We (love) her. I hold dear to my heart the saying 'Friends are the family we got to choose for ourselves,'" the TV host-actress wrote in the caption.
Aquino's post came after Padilla's daughter Karylle confirmed to reporters that her mother and Onglao have broken up.
