MANILA — Kris Aquino is looking to turn a page as she announced Wednesday, through her legal team, that she has “fairly settled” her feud with her former business partner, Nicko Falcis.

On Instagram, the former TV host shared a statement from Divina Law, which represented her in cases she had filed against Falcis.

Aquino’s complaints of qualified theft against Falcis, filed in seven cities in October 2018, stemmed from the latter’s supposed unauthorized, personal use of a credit card meant for expenses of Aquino’s eponymous production company.

In January 2019, Falcis filed a grave theats complaint against Aquino, following the viral recording of their phone conversation where the actress could be heard berating her former business manager.

Falcis’ brother, Atty. Jesus Falcis, was also not spared from Aquino’s crosshairs, as she sued him for cyberlibel over “malicious and defamatory statements.”

The statement from Divina Law said the three individuals — Aquino, and the Falcis brothers — “have fairly settled all financial issues and amicably worked out all personal differences.”

“To avoid any future misunderstanding, no further statement shall be forthcoming,” it added, without specifying which of the cases, or if all the cases, were settled.

Aquino, in her accompanying caption, waxed optimistic about the controversial saga being closed.

“Learn from yesterday, like today, but above all, make sure to love tomorrow,” she wrote.
