Basketball player James Yap shared to The Buzz in an exclusive interview how he is adjusting to his and Kris Aquino’s annulment. “Nung una siyempre mahirap, dahil 5 years din kami, then ganun yung nangyari siyempre nagaadjust din kami. At least ngayon nakakapagadjust na, ngayon ako na lang mag-isa, tahimik ng bahay.”
He added that he and his ex-wife have completely moved on and both are focusing on raising their son, Bimby, well. “Basta ang main concern, main focus namin ay ito (referring to Baby James). Mapa-feel namin na andito kami at mahal na mahal namin siya.”
James shared that he and Kris are also communicating better after their annulment has become official. “Nagbibiruan na sa isa’t isa, alam mo ‘yun dati kasi masyadong sensitive. Pero ngayong tapos na lahat, bakit ano pa ba ang kailangan pag-awayan, tapos na. Then nakapag-move on naman lahat. No choice naman kami kasi may anak kami. Kaya pakita na lang namin sa anak namin na ok kami kahit ‘di na kami nakatira sa iisang bubong.” He also gave a message for Baby James. “Andito lang yung Papa mo at mahal na mahal ka. Kahit yung Mama at Papa mo hindi na nagsasama sa isang bubong basta andito lang kami sumusuporta say o. gagawin ko lahat para ma feel mo na mahal na mahal ka ng Papa.”
On the topic of finding a new love, James said that he is enjoying the single life and is not in a hurry to find a girlfriend. “Mahirap magsalita ng tapos pero hindi naman sa ine-enjoy pero lumalabas ako with friends, next chapter na in life kaya ‘wag muna mag madali.”
Rare footage of James interaction with Kris and Baby James at home can be seen on Kris Reali-TV this Feb 13 – 15 at 9AM on ABS-CBN.
