Kris Aquino has called out her ex-boyfriend Mark Leviste for his post that mentioned the names of her children, Joshua and Bimby, saying that it may mislead people into thinking that they're still a couple.

The post that Kris commented on was of Mark congratulating Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas for being recognized by the Asia Leaders Awards. He also congratulated his eldest son, Ronin, for having been nominated for the Young Leader of the Year category.

"Ronin was chosen for being one of the most outstanding young legislators of the Philippines and one of the youngest vice mayors nationwide," Mark wrote.

Near the end of the post, Mark mentioned that he is currently in the United States to celebrate Thanksgiving with Kris, along with his youngest son C2 and mother Patsie.

"I am very excited for Ronin and mama to spend time with the Queen at her new home and I’m also glad that C2 is reunited with Kuya Josh and Bimb. Love, love, love!" Mark wrote.

In a now-deleted comment by Kris, the actress didn't seem to appreciate Mark mentioning the names of their children as it might "mislead" readers about the status of their relationship.

"I'm sorry, I know this isn’t my feed, but you are misleading people. Our children shouldn't be collateral damage because I chose to end our relationship," Kris wrote.

"They have always treated me kindly and I must commend you, because Ronin is not only intelligent, but he is responsible and compassionate," she added.

While the Queen of All Media emphasized that she is looking forward to meeting Mark's mother, she stressed her desire to keep things private between them from now on.

"Marc, we shared beautiful memories and if only for that and my decision to stay private because what’s done is done," Kris stressed.

She further revealed that the two of them had an altercation prior to his post, but said that she won't be publishing any screenshots of the conversation.

"I won’t post the screenshots of your tirade against me just a few hours ago, considering I had both Dupixent and Methotrexate today. I remain grateful for all the time you spent trying to keep me company but I reached my end point on Nov. 3, 2023," Kris wrote.

"May God bless you and help you fulfill all your plans and ambitions," she continued, adding the hashtag "#noregrets" at the end.

The actress clarified in a previous Instagram post that she and Mark are no more, after a report stated that the two of them are still together.

"Unfortunately, by the time that post came out it was no longer true. A long distance relationship is difficult when undergoing very physically demanding treatments like my methotrexate and my Dupixent," Kris detailed.

She was pertaining to her ongoing battle with her autoimmune diseases, which she said has now been reduced to just three from the previous number of five.

She continued, "The truth is that I chose to lessen the stressors in my life and put my well-being first. On November 3, 2023, I initiated our breakup. It was a well-thought-out decision based on choosing to do what’s best for me now. I’m dealing with so much and my love life isn’t a priority."

Kris opted to not delve into the details for the sake of her family's privacy.

Mark and Kris first sparked dating rumors in January of this year, after the politician shared an Instagram post revealing that they welcomed 2023 together, with him calling her "the Queen" in the caption.
