After revealing “her truth” about their relationship, the “Queen of All Media” has unfollowed Mark Leviste on Instagram. 

Kris has shared with the public that she no longer feels “the need to keep communication lines open" with the Batangas vice governor via her Instagram Stories on Friday, Sept. 1.

In one of the screenshots Kris shared on social media, the TV host can be read saying, "Whatever is going on in my life or in yours, parang nawala na the desire for me to know what's happening with you or for me to keep you informed."

"I want to remain polite but this is really what happens when we are so far from each other—people really do grow apart," she continued. 

The actress-host also stressed her need to have “serenity and peace.” 

"Thank you for keeping in touch but I'd really prefer if you don't," she said. "It's really a lot more peaceful now." 

"And that's always been my prayer. Serenity and peace," she concluded her message. 

Mark, meanwhile, is still following her official Instagram accounts, including the multiple fan accounts of the Queen of All Media. 

Kris Aquino removed Mark Leviste from her Instagram following.

Earlier this year, the politician shared a photo of them together, where he fondly referred to Kris as “The Queen.” In June, he shared in an interview that his heart was “happy [and] full of love, love, love!” further sparking dating rumors. 

Kris, for her part, clarified that Mark's statement was far from their reality. 

"For my peace of mind, just the facts: without my knowledge or consent, someone spoke about what’s supposed to be his 'taking care of me in LA' plus 'our happy and full of love relationship' - yet just like any new relationship many couples will easily identify, we are still adjusting to each other’s already set habits & ways,” she previously wrote in her Instagram post. 

"Recently there have been unavoidable conflicts. I don’t believe in presenting a happy picture when that’s not quite our current reality," she continued.  

"I’m hopeful we can still work through our differences, though a part of me realizes the lack of wisdom in embarking on a relationship while undergoing treatment." 

In July, Kris confirmed her past relationship and her breakup with Mark, highlighting that “love is patient,” quoting the bible verse 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7.  

“Nobody I’ve ever been in a relationship with has ever given me as much love and encouragement. He wasn’t only my boyfriend, he became my best friend and confidante, talagang maaasahan,” she continued, stressing that she needed to put their relationship to a halt following the worsening state of her health condition at that time.
