Kim Chiu Personal & Early Life

Kim Chiu is the fourth of five children to be born to William Chiu, a Chinese businessman from Mindoro and Louella (born Yap; 1963–2013), a Filipino Sangley native who migrated from the Dinagat Islands to Surigao del Sur, Philippines. She's fluent in Cebuano (Visayan), Tagalog, English, Waray, Hokkien and Mandarin Chinese beginners only. Since her parent's separation in 1998, Kim has had a bad relationship with both of her parents. She and her siblings were raised by their paternal grandma and, as children, often moved to the Philippine Visayas; moved to Tacloban, Leyte, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, General Santos City, Mindoro and back to Cebu City until 2006. In 2013, she reunited with her father “after five years of alienation” while visiting her second partner and half-sisters in San Jose, Mindoro Occidental. Her biological mother, Louella, went into a coma a month later in June. After a week of hospital treatment, Louella died of brain aneurysm on June 23, 2013. In her mother's eulogy, she debunked the rumors of animosity about her mother's child abandonment and said, “An angel guides me in my decisions in life. For me, that's finally my mom.” Chiu dated co-star Gerald Anderson from 2006 to 2010. Kim Chiu started dating fellow Star Magic artist and lead actor, Xian Lim in 2012, which was revealed in the 2013 episode of Kris TV. On November 15, 2018, Kim Chiu officially revealed her relationship with Lim in her Tonight interview with Boy Abunda. “On March 4, 2020, Chiu traveled along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City on her way to a recording of her Love Thy Woman series, when two unidentified gunmen, riding in tandem on a motorcycle, fired six shots at her van. Chiu and her crew mates were unharmed. Investigators looked at the shooting as a possible case of misconception.
Chiu uses his media influence to promote various causes. She started a partnership with GSK for annual asthma awareness campaigns, Win Against Asthma, after struggling with asthma as a child. Since then, Chiu has participated in disaster relief organizations such as the Philippine National Red Cross and Sagip Kapamilya. She and Xian Lim joined the Free Mali PETA campaign. Chiu made a video plea for Mali asking her to be moved to the sanctuary for the sake of her well-being. She and Lim spearheaded a relief operation in Marikina in August 2012. Chiu was heavily involved in relief efforts for Typhoon Yolanda through the Red Cross, which had affected parts of her hometown. Apart from giving food and water, she also held weekly clothing auctions to raise money for the victims of Typhoon. By 2013, it was also revealed that the actress was regularly involved in financing Isla Pulo, an impoverished community of 1,000 people in Manila Bay, Philippines.

As one of the Philippines' highest paid backers, Chiu highlighted the ongoing Pork Barrel tax controversy and the government's suspected misuse of the PDAF at a press conference on August 28, 2013, indicating the percentage of tax celebrities paid to the government like herself: “The money isn't a joke that we're paying so much tax and we don't know where it's going.”
In 2013, the Office of Internal Revenue confirmed Chiu as the 131st top tax payer in the country with 9.3M in income taxes.
