MANILA, Philippines – Television host and actress Kris Aquino has broken her silence amid accusations that she is just using her former husband James Yap for publicity.

In her official Twitter account, Aquino said she was deeply offended when one of her followers alleged her of seeking publicity.

“All I said was that no bitterness doesn't necessarily mean a desire for closeness. I have my reasons, I felt nabastos ako in my own home last week. I'm not making a big issue but I was offended deeply and sorry di ko kaya to be plastic and pretend we are friends,” she said.

Last week during the press conference of her upcoming movie “Sisterakas,” Aquino revealed that she and the star cager are no longer in good terms. "No that's not true. Hindi na ngayon," she said.

"Ayoko magpaka-plastic sa inyo," the actress-host said. "It's easy to tell all of you na, 'Yes, we're friends, we're good and all.' We're not,” she said.

“I think we're better off having distance from each other, kasi nami-misinterpret namin ang isa't isa. I hold no bitterness in my heart, but I have no desire for any closeness," Aquino added.

But the TV host said she has matured enough not to even mention what they fought about.

“Wag na lang sana ako i-provoke because I'm trying to remain patient and quiet,” she said.

In another tweet, however, Aquino told one of her followers that she would not be fighting with Yap if it was not about their son James Yap Jr.
