Kim Chiu breaks silence on alleged fake ambush

Chinita Princess Kim Chiu went back to vlogging and finally broke her silence about allegations that the ambush attempt on her three weeks ago was stage-managed.
 
On March 5, Chiu’s van was shot eight times by gunmen onboard a motorcycle along Katipunan Ave. cor. C.P. Garcia Ave. Chiu, and her driver Wilfredo Taberna and personal assistant Mayrin Nasara were unharmed.
 
But former broadcaster Jay Sonza raised a question on that the ambush attempt on the Hyundai van could have been “scripted.” He said professional hired killers would have hit the van with accuracy and killed the target. “Malamang writer ng ABS-CBN ‘FPJ: Ang Probinsyano’ ang nagsulat ng ‘the unbelievable ambush of Kim Chiu,’ he wrote on his Facebook account.

Chiu denied the shooting incident was a fake.
 
“Kailangan ba talaga may namatay may nasaktan para sabihin totoo?
 
“Hindi ko ilalagay ang buhay ng mga tao para lang sa publicity. Buhay yun ng mga taong nag-aalaga sa kin. Para ko na silang pamilya eh. Kung asawa, magulang mo yun, ilalagay mo ba sila sa ganung peligro?” she said.
 
The Kapamilya actress said she was bothered when she saw the post.
 
“First 2 days sobra akong nalungkot nung mapanood sa youtube, sinabi nya na fake ambush daw. 
 
“Sabi ko sarili ko, “Bakit nya sinabi yun? Bakit maraming naniniwala sa kanya? Dami kong bakit nung araw na yun. Hanggang sa dumating na sa punto na — Hindi na mahalaga ang reaksyon nya. Mahalaga na walang masaktan sa amin,” she said.
 
She shared that she underwent psychological debriefing after the incident and that she was told by the psychologist that going straight to her workplace was perfectly normal — since she was asleep and did not sinked into her consciousness at that time that her life was in danger.

“Kaya mo rin nagawang dumeretso sa taping ay dahil instinct mo na dumeretso sa taping,” Chiu quoted her counselor as saying.
 
The 29-year-old Filipino-Chinese actress said one of the executives of ABS-CBN and her lawyer got a text from someone who believes she was the target of that ambush attempt. The supposed target of the ambushers wanted to come out to defend Chiu but still fears for her life, she said.
 
“Para akong nabunutan ng tinik, para akong nabuhusan ng malamig na tubig
Pano kung tumama sa kin, na hindi naman para sa kin?” she said.
