After four months, Dr. Carol Falcis—the mother of embattled brothers Nicko and Jesus Falcis—has finally opened up about the legal battle that her sons are going through against Kris Aquino.  

In a Facebook and Instagram post, Dr. Falcis, an oncologist by profession, claims she used to be a fan of Aquino and her straight-shooting public persona. “I liked your kaartehan, and I thought you were honest. But now I know you’re not!” she says of the multimedia star in her caps-laden social media diatribe.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Our Mom Speaks: From Dra. Carol Falcis PART1 For the past 4 months, I have kept my silence because I trusted my kids to be capable enough of defending themselves. I was worried and saddened last year when people believed the lies fostered by Kris Aquino on my dear son, Nicko. But the changing sentiments of the majority, including even her once loyal fans, and the messages of love and support of Filipinos in the last few weeks made me cry with tears of joy! First, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to all people, especially the netizens, who reached out and gave their unwavering support. I want to assure you that your belief in my son is not misplaced - he is truly INNOCENT of the false charges thrown against him! With your support, he has been vindicated! Second, my family is not engaging in a trial by publicity. May I remind you Kris Aquino that it was you who started it all and engaged in trial by publicity for four months, from September to December 2018. If my family is going public, it is only because we have to respond and defend ourselves from your constant lies and especially your death threats. How can your lawyers forget the fact that you tried to destroy Nicko’s reputation publicly by posting in your IG, FB, Twitter, and Youtube last Sept. 22, 2018 regarding an alleged "betrayal of trust" by your financial adviser! You implied someone stole your “life savings” for your sons. Behind the scenes, you tried to bully my family into signing one-sided contracts, using as leverage the fact that you can destroy Nicko's reputation even without naming him and more so if you name him! Then you used your PAID MINIONS to slowly identify my son - like the 72 y/o Lolit Solis during her radio interview with Arnold Clavio and subsequently in her libelous IG post on Oct. 1! In November, you made a BIG FUSS by calling the media to cover you when you filed cases and explicitly named Nicko. Isn’t that trial by publicity? How UNFAIR for you to attack my son unrelentingly on social and mainstream media while we kept silent initially because your lawyer Atty. Fortun commanded us to keep quiet and of course, you threatened to have my son KILLED!

The two camps have been slinging allegations at each other since late last year, beginning when Aquino bemoaned online the loss of millions from a trusted business associate. This eventually led to a case being filed against Nicko Falcis, who was managing director of her Kris Cojuangco Aquino Productions. Nicko’s younger brother, the lawyer and radio broadcaster Jesus Falcis, shot back via social media and disputed the charges.

“I have kept my silence because I trusted my kids to be capable enough of defending themselves. I was worried and saddened last year when people believed the lies fostered by Kris Aquino on my dear son Nicko,” Dr. Falcis writes. “But the changing sentiments of the majority, including even her once loyal fans, and the messages of love and support of Filipinos in the last few weeks made me cry with tears of joy!”

Dr. Falcis assures their supporters that their family’s belief in her son isn’t misplaced, emphatically asserting Nicko’s innocence. “With your support, he is vindicated!” she writes.

But Dr. Falcis then went back to addressing Aquino directly for the lengthiest part of her post. She denies engaging in a trial by publicity, alleging the actress started the back-and-forth. “If my family is going public, it is only because we have to respond and defend ourselves from your constant lies and especially your death threats,” she says. “Behind the scenes, you tried to bully my family into signing one-sided contracts, using as leverage the fact that you can destroy Nicko’s reputation even without naming him and more so if you name him!”

Dr. Falcis names Lolit Solis as one of Aquino’s “paid minions” who slowly outed her son in a radio interview with Arnold Clavio and a subsequent post on Instagram. She also alleges that the actress’s lawyer Sigfrid Fortun “commanded” them to keep quiet. “And, of course, you threatened to have my son killed! And now you and your lawyers have the gall to say for us to stop posting on social media?” she goes on in her scathing rebuke.

Aquino’s “Kris Life Updates” with entertainment reporter Anna Pingol, uploaded on Aquino’s YouTube channel, was also called out. The matriarch Falcis set the record straight. “I am not and never will be a ‘deeply embarrassed mother’ as you shamelessly claimed,” she says. “That is completely untrue! I never wrote and I never said to you that I was deeply embarrassed.”

Despite these, Dr. Falcis says that she wishes Aquino recovers from the autoimmune disease she claims to have. As a mother, she writes, she wants Aquino to “enjoy life with her sons just as I want to live the rest of my senior life with my kids in peace. I pray she comes to her senses. I have been experiencing anxiety, palpitations, and paranoia about the safety of Nicko ever since her death threats. I am not getting any younger!”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Our Mom Speaks: From Dra. Carol Falcis PART2 And now you and your lawyers have the gall to say for us to stop posting on social media? I know you wanted to meet me but thank God we never did. I WAS one of your fans because I liked your “kaartehan” and I thought you were honest. But now I know you're not! I am NOT and NEVER will be a “deeply embarrassed mother” as you shamelessly claimed in one of your IG posts and "Kris Life Updates" with Ana Pingol! That is completely untrue! I never wrote and I never said to you that I was deeply embarrassed. Remember the Ten Commandments, “THOU SHALT NOT LIE.” You started with lies, we will end it with truths. Third, I wish Kris Aquino gets better and pray for her health as she claims she is sick. But remember, NO SICKNESS CAN ever JUSTIFY concocting lies, bullying, and making death threats! I am glad she later admitted in one of her press cons that it was wrong for her to blame my son for her sickness. As a mother, I hope she recovers from her autoimmune disease so that she can enjoy life with her sons just as I want to live the rest of my senior life with my kids in peace. I pray she comes to her senses. I have been experiencing anxiety, palpitations, and paranoia about the safety of Nicko ever since her death threats. I am not getting any younger! I take inspiration from this quote I found online: “Sometimes GOD will put a GOLIATH in your life, for you to find the DAVID within you!” I pray the spirit of humility, forgiveness, and reconciliation will reign in our hearts and may the Truth be revealed in God’s perfect time.

But in the end, she stays within the tone of her epithet. “No sickness can ever justify concocting lies, bullying, and making death threats! I am glad she later admitted in one of her press cons that it was wrong for her to blame my son for her sickness.”

To close, the Mrs. Falcis invoked God and the bible, putting forth a David and Goliath metaphor and subsequently praying that “humility, forgiveness, and reconciliation” will reign.

“Remember the Ten Commandments, ‘Thou shalt not lie.’ You started with lies, we will end it with truths,” she says.
