Kim Chiu’s Long-Lost Mom Suffers StrokeKim Chiu has finally seen her long-lost mother, after numerous years. But contrary to her expectations, their reunion was not a happy one. According to a report released by daily broadsheet showbiz columnist Ricky Lo, Louella Chiu, Kim’s mother, recently suffered stroke and is now comatosed while confined in an undisclosed hospital.
The information about Mrs.Chiu’s condition was obtained from several employees of Philippine Airlines (PAL). According to insiders, Kim’s sister is training at the local carrier to be a flight attendant. Lo was asking his readers to pray for Mrs. Chiu’s recovery from her present condition.
It is an open secret that Kim is from a broken family. She and her siblings have not seen their mother since their parents separated. Kim and her sisters were left to the care of their grandma on their father’s side. It was Kim’s grandmother who took care of the siblings and who sent them all to school.
Kim and her siblings hailed from Cebu City. Their grandma owns a clothing retailer in the city. When she was still not a celebrity, Kim used to work as the store’s cashier during her break from school. Kim’s life changed when she decided to join ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Teen Edition.
She was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the original teen housemates. Furthermore, she bagged the grand prize and the title of being the first PBB Teen Big Winner. It was her passport to show business, which in turn was very kind and generous to her. Now, she’s one of the brightest female stars of her generation.
Reuniting with dad
Several months ago, Kim and her siblings reunited with their father after a long time. It was Kim who first got the chance to spend time with her dad again. It happened when she graced an event in Mindoro together with her current love team partner Xian Lim.
Kim’s father is now based in that province. It was also revealed that her father is now happy with his new family, which is based in Mindoro. During their reunion, Kim and her sisters also met their new siblings from their dad’s new family.
Just recently, Kim was personally visited by her grandmother, who raised her and her sisters. The grandma came along with her dad’s own siblings, who are all based in Cebu. It is interesting why Kim is not yet talking about these latest developments in her personal life. She may be preferring to keep her life private.
Kim just folded up her hit TV series in ABS-CBN, ‘Ina Kapatid Anak.’ After PBB, she has starred in several hit TV shows, where she was featured as the lead star. Those included ‘Tayong Dalawa,’ ‘My Girl,’ and ‘My Binondo Girl.’ She also starred in several movies, almost all produced by Star Cinema.
