Thursday, July 3, 2014
BASKETBALL star James Yap for the first time revealed that he has a child with his former girlfriend prior to her marriage with TV-host actress Kris Aquino.
The cager will open up more about his personal life in Thursday's episode of "Tapatan ni Tunying" (TNT) on ABS-CBN 2.
In the said interview, Yap thanked his former girlfriend for keeping mum on the issue amid all the intrigues thrown at him.
"Actually, gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa ex-girlfriend ko na talagang kung ano man pinagdaanan ko, hindi siya nakisawsaw, hindi siya nakialam or siniraan ako," he said.
Aside from confirming his love child, Yap also spoke about his civil relationship with his estranged wife, whom he married in 2005, annulled in 2010 and shares son James Jr., also known as Bimby.
In addition, Yap answered questions about his possible wedding plan with Italian girlfriend Michella Cazola.
"Ang pag papakasal kasi, nandiyan lang yan. Hindi naman nawawala yan. Hinay-hinay lang. Darating at darating ang oras na bigla lang maiisip mo, 'Okay, sige".
As for his life as a cager, Yap said he is planning to quit his professional basketball career after six years and eventually venture into coaching.
"Gusto kong mag-coach sa high school para sa mga bata. Para ma-share ko kung ano yung experience ko. Iba pa yung feeling pag nakatulong ka sa mga bata tapos makikita mo na lang silang nasa PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) na."
The interview will be aired on ABS-CBN Thursday at 4 p.m. (Sunnex)
