Last March 21, Kris Aquino tendered her resignation from the Kapamilya network to concentrate on being a mother to her two sons, Josh and Bimby, amidst the controversy between her and former husband James Yap.
Instead of accepting Kris’ resignation, ABS-CBN let the TV host take a leave from work instead.
Here is the full statement:
ABS CBN and Kris Aquino have met several times to discuss her intent to resign.
ABS CBN fully understands Kris’ desire to be the best mother to Bimby and Josh. On the other hand, ABS-CBN values Kris as an iconic talent and a respected national media personality. Both parties recognize her responsibilities to the public, her co-workers and to the advertisers.
After thorough discussions, Kris has agreed to take a leave instead. This will allow her to spend quality time with Bimby in June when he is on school break and to bring Josh abroad to advance his developmental progress. After her leave, Kris will honor her responsibilities and will fulfill her contractual commitments to ABS-CBN without impairing her role as a mother.
