A week after the ambush, Kim posted on her Instagram a message to thank God and all the people who extended their help to comfort and protect her after the traumatic experience that happened to her and her team.
“It has been a week since….that day made me realize life is really short, life is very precious and most of all felt God’s presence he protected me, my PA and my driver,. None of us was hurt. He is really powerful amongst us all. I must say it was a miracle. I could not explain the feeling but I know he was with us and so our guardian angels.

But then, not all people believe that what had happened to her was real because even after the incident, she still went for her taping that day. Former broadcaster Jay Sonza called the attack a fake ambush and called it “isang malaking drawing”.
Kim’s showbiz friends like Sunshine Cruz, Director Jerry Lopez Sineneng, Angel Locsin, David Chua, and Ogie Diaz defended her against Sonza’s allegations. They said Kim isn’t the type to look for publicity that way and that she doesn’t need to seek the extra attention anyway.
Meanwhile, Kim remains grateful that she and her companions remained safe and that there are people who care about her.
