Actress Kris Aquino dismissed the rumors that her brother former President Noynoy Aquino was suffering an illness after a photo of his thin figure circulated online.

Replying to a follower's comment on Instagram, Kris said it was 5 months ago when he last saw her brother. She noted, however, that Noynoy regularly meets her son, Joshua.

“How am i supposed to react? The truth is the last time we saw each other was almost 5 months ago, I have always been truthful — we aren’t close & we have several issues that remain unresolved BUT kuya josh sees him regularly. End of story for me,” Kris said on her comment

“So maybe the fact that he has the energy to bond with kuya he’s not VERY sick. Makes sense, right? #PSA They were together Sunday, September 22,” she added.

On August 21, many already noticed that Noynoy was not present at the ceremonies of the 39th death anniversary of Benigno Simeon Aquino Jr.

Following the former President's absence, Kris explained that his brother is sick but could not disclose publicly what was ailing his brother.

“He is sick. He is not okay. I’m not at liberty to say what’s wrong with him.”  quoting what Kris said from an ABS CBN report.

The 59-year old former president was known to have been a chain smoker and dealt with rumors about his health.
