James Yap defended his post with son Bimby.
JAMES YAP – The basketball star player James Yap has defended his birthday greeting to son Bimby which triggered ex-wife Kris Aquino.
James Yap and Kris Aquino were formerly married but their supposed-to-be-happy-ending has ended.
They got a son and he is popularly called Bimby.
He just recently turned 11 years old.
Thanks to my Uncle Esting, my cuz, and @_piasantos for taking Kuya & Bimb to Mass & dinner. I had a migraine & was (according to Bimb) snoring when they left. Ninang duties tomorrow morning for the Baptism of my ka birthday Coco Aquino… From this mama & her bunso- thank you for having our backs. We had a talk & because we have shoots for Toblerone, Cheez Whiz, Lucky Me, and Ceelin Chewables in the next few weeks plus many more products & institutions we can’t mention- we both decided that the unexpected royalty check i got from @kamisetaph, 50% of it we’ll share w/ some more parish feeding programs & the Churches we regularly pray in… It is our way of walking the talk & giving meaning & gratitude to God for Bimb’s birthday by sharing our blessings. This #warriorqueen will continue to slay but she’ll use her energy in doing good & being worthy of all the blessings coming her way… Because PROUDLY i am what i do & not merely what i say. GOOD NIGHT. #laban #lovelovelove ♥️♥️♥️
And his father, the professional basketball player James Yap has greeted him through the Instagram.
His birthday greeting to his son indicated, “Happy birthday Bimb! I miss you and think about you everyday. Alam ko na ang tagal na natin di nakapagspend ng time together, at di nagkikita, but i want you to know that I’m always here for you. I will always be your papa. I hope you enjoy your birthday!”
To which the statement has irked Kris Aquino especially the one where he said that it has been so long since he saw his.
Thus, Kris lambasted him in a lengthy post in the said social media platform.
In a previous report, Kris has stated in an Instagram post as well, “Eh humirit ka w/ your birthday post. So bakit nga ba hindi kayo nagkikita? Ganito ka simple- wala ka nang pakinabang kay Bimb. Wala na kasi kaming “power” so bakit ka pa didikit? Madali kung gusto mo.”
Ngayon patas na tayo, hindi na ko pwedeng ma-accuse ng power tripping. NANAHIMIK ako for so LONG- even when you crossed the line when promoting that bar you are part owner of- nagsalita ka & nasa PEP yung video na napanuod ni Bimb mismo “nakakawalang ganang mag effort na magpaka tatay kay Bimb kasi hindi naman appreciated.” UTANG NA LOOB… flashback 2013- trying hard kang umiyak (i say trying hard kasi walang luha, puro uhog lang) sa interview mo sa TV Patrol dahil “pinagkakait” ko si Bimb sa yo… Ay oo nga pala, of course pinagaksayahan mo sya ng panahon 5 years ago- kasi nasa Malacañang pa ang Tito nya… Nung tinanong ka bakit hindi ka na nag share sa tuition ni Bimb ang “excuse” mo dahil hindi ka na consult nung ililipat sya ng school… Sinunod ko yung annulment compromise financial agreement of 2011 w/c gave you millions; 2014 tayo pumirma ng compromise child support, once ka lang nag abot ng half mo pang education ni Bimb- after the signing. When Bimb saw the post na BINASTOS sya na “baklain” sya, he shrugged it off & said: “Mom- who cares? My own biological dad said that about me in court & he’s said it so many other times?” Nanahimik pa rin ako about that kasi feeling ko- wag mo kaming guluhin, peaceful tayo… Eh humirit ka w/ your birthday post. So bakit nga ba hindi kayo nagkikita? Ganito ka simple- wala ka nang pakinabang kay Bimb. Wala na kasi kaming “power” so bakit ka pa didikit? Madali kung gusto mo. Ang kapatid mo ka Facebook si Bincai. Yung napakabait na pamilya from Iloilo na parang 2nd family mo ay hanggang ngayon ka close ni Ate at Pinky… you are missing out on experiencing what a caring, generous, polite & lovable boy Bimb is- and it is your LOSS. I am ready to be bashed for washing our dirty laundry (of course w/ Ariel Antibac w/ the power of Safeguard) on IG BUT this mother has had it w/ half truths & hypocrisy & she needed to make a stand for truth. #lookwhatyoumademedo
And in an interview with Pep, James has defended his birthday greeting and insisted that there is nothing wrong with it.
“Wala naman yatang masama dun kapag i-greet mo yung sarili mong anak. Tsaka na-miss ko siya. Wala naman atang masama dun… sariling tatay mag-greet sa sariling anak,” he said as quoted by the source.
