Simula noong naghiwalay ang mga magulang ni Kim Chiu noong 1998, Kim had a dysfunctional relationship with both of her parents.

In 2013, she reconciled with her father “after five years of estrangement” while visiting his second partner and half-siblings in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. A month later in June, Kim Chiu ‘s biological mother, Louella, fell into a coma. Following a week of hospitalization, Louella died on June 23, 2013, due to brain aneurysm. In a eulogy dedicated to her mother, she debunked rumors of animosity over her mother’s child abandonment and expressed: “An angel guides me in my decisions in life. For me, that is finally my mom.”
