1. James Yap refuses to comment on Kris Aquino's recent statements
"Sinabi ko naman noon na hintayin ko na lang magkaisip si Bimby. Nagsalita na ako noon, tama na yun," the pro basketball star said when asked to comment about his ex-wife Kris Aquino's recent statements about their son Bimb finding out that he has a new half-brother. "Ipag-pray ko na lang na dumating nga yung time na maintindihan ni Bimby lahat. Ayoko nang lumaki pa, e. Kasi ang gusto ko naman, maging close sana silang magkakapatid, at maging okay na ang lahat," James added. He said he does try to find ways to talk to Bimb as he misses him "pero wala na akong magagawa." James also said Kris knows the details but does not want to elaborate. James stressed that Bimb can meet his little brother MJ anytime.
On the other hand, James and Michela decided not to post any photos -- at least not those which show the face -- of their two-month-old baby MJ just yet. "Ayoko. No. I’m very jealous, e. He’s for me only," Michela quipped. "I just want to keep his privacy. You know what happened to Nadine Samonte? I don’t want that to happen to my baby," she said. According to Michela, MJ looks like her but got his eyes from his dad. (pep.ph)
