Kim Chiu’s Mom Passes AwayKim Chiu is mourning these days. Her mom, Louella Yap Chiu, died last Sunday (June 23). She was 50 years old. According to reports, Mrs. Chiu died at a hospital in Cebu while under confinement. She was reportedly ill. The Chiu family refrained from sharing more information about the family member’s demise.
Kim and her siblings still refuse to grant any media interview regarding this sad news. As of latest, all she said to some showbiz reporters is to give her family the due respect for their privacy. Kim is asking some space as she mourns for the loss of her mother.
Kim’s friends and followers use social media networking sites to extend their heartfelt condolences to her and to her family. Most of the messages ask Kim to remain strong and positive amid the family ordeal. Some others simply promise to pray for the repose of the deceased’s soul.
It was previously reported here that Kim has not seen her mom for several years now. It was revealed that Kim’s parents both abandoned her and her siblings when the couple separated. It was Kim’s grandmother in her father’s side who took the responsibility of raising Kim and her siblings.
A few weeks ago, Kim had a chance to reunite with her dad. She was at an out-of-town show in Mindoro when she met her father again. Mr. Chiu is now based in the province with his new family. Kim even met her new siblings (her father’s younger children with new wife).
It is not clear how Kim’s mom lived her life after the separation. According to some reports, she suffered from a type of cancer. ABS-CBN and Star Magic have already expressed their support to Kim especially at this moment of extreme sadness.
