In a no-holds-barred interview with ANC’s Headstart hosted by news anchor Karen Davila, Monday, August 18, Makati Mayor Jejomar “Junjun” Binay, Jr. clarified the rumors between him and TV host Kris Aquino in the past.
Binay, during the interview, emphasized that their family’s relationship with the Aquinos were “beyond politics.” When asked by Davila if he and Aquino did go out in the past, Binay answered, “No, we are friends.”
He also said that since her wife was sick their family were in the same hospital (Makati Medical Center) around the same time the late President Cory Aquino was brought to the facility. He recalled that his wife died 10 days after the much-loved Aquino matriarch died.
Binay lost his wife in 2009, after giving birth to their youngest child.
Binay also revealed that when the late president died, he was “tasked to do something for the family.” He shared that he was the one who took the body of the late president out of the building, explaining that he left the hospital around the time President Noynoy Aquino announced the death of his mother.
Kris Aquino has also previously denied dating Mayor Junjun Binay at all.
