Her supporters included Fashion Icon Heart Evangelista and Sorsogon City Governor Chiz Escudero, who showed their support on their respective social media accounts.
Escudero praised Kim for knowing how to turn ‘lemons into lemonade’, “This how to handle and do it!!! Congrats @prinsesachinita You just showed everybody how to turn lemons into lemonade!!! Kudos to you!!!”
Heart retweeted her husband’s tweet about Kim and described Kim as a good-hearted person, “We love you @prinsesachinita at the end of the day … you can never put a person with a good heart down”
