Kris Aquino’s ‘ex-husband’ eyes Senate seat, declares love for ‘queen of all media’

A man claiming to be Kris Aquino’s former husband and a self-proclaimed advocate of Filipino rock music filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for senator before the Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Thursday.

Daniel Magtira, who was disqualified from the 2016 senatorial race, said, “Sana naman, bigyan ako ng chance ng Commission on Elections.

(I hope the Comelec will give me a chance.)

“Yung Pinoy rock, for business [‘yun]. Vocalist kasi ako ng Bad Face rock band. Band leader si Rey Santos,” he said.

(Pinoy rock, that’s for business. I am a vocalist of Bad Face rock band and the band leader is Rey Santos.)

Facing the cameras of the members of the press, Magtira also said he still loved “the queen of all media,” referring to Kris Aquino.

“May iba na ‘yata siya [na asawa]eh. Kris, kung nanonood ka, iniibig pa rin kita.”

(I think she has a new husband. Kris, if you’re watching, I still love you.)

Aquino is a single mother whose sons are Joshua, with actor Philip Salvador; and James “Bimby” Aquino Yap Jr., with professional basketball player James Yap. CATHERINE MODESTO
