MANILA -- Mexican superstar Thalia was just playing joke when she claimed she had kept her ribs which she supposedly had removed to have a sexier figure as a souvenir.

On Tuesday afternoon, Thalia, who is known in the Philippines for her soap “Marimar” and “Maria la del Barrio,” posted on her official Instagram account photos of herself with a jar containing ribs.

"To all my loving Filipino fans, here is the proof I love (love) My Famous Ribs, I kept them with me all these years," Thalia wrote in the caption.

On Wednesday morning, the actress posted the same photo but with an "X" mark.

"Not mine!" she wrote in the caption.

"These are mine!... And I like them extra spicy just like me," she wrote with the photo of a plate of spare ribs.

The prank came about after Kris Aquino mentioned on her show "Aquino and Abunda Tonight" last week that she had heard rumors that the Mexican actress had part of her ribs removed.

Thalia at first "confirmed" the long-standing rumor.

"To all my Filipino fans, I would like to set the record straight about this issue: the chismis is totoo," Thalia wrote before she posted the photo of her supposed ribs.
