James Yap Reaction To Gay Issue Involving Son Bimby

Here’s the reply of James Yap to those who doubt the gender preference of his son.

JAMES YAP – Professional basketball player James reacted to the gay issue involving his son with Kris Aquino, Bimby.

In a heart-to-heart conversation with Kris Aquino previously, she told her son that she will accept every choice he will make and to the person that he will become in the end following the issues regarding his gender preference. But in front of his mother and their video being viewed by a lot of people online, he directly said this to his mother seemingly putting an end to these speculations:

“If you think I’m gay, alright. But you do realize that the gay community sa Philippines is a strong community. And you do realize that I’m 14. I know what I am. I’m straight as an arrow.”

Bimby is just 14 years old and his mother lovingly told him that she will accept in whatever he chooses to be as long as he would excel and in what he wanted to be as long as he would be the best in his chosen profession. To recall, a viral video of Bimby has surfaced before where his feminine gesture was caught on camera eventually garnering various comments from different online platforms.

And now, with these rumors about Bimby seemingly never-ending online, his father professional basketball player James Yap, finally spoke for and refuted such as he defended his 14-year-old son. He admitted that he’s been quiet about this kind of speculation against his son but he knows for sure that Bimby is not gay.


In a report from Inquirer, he said, “I was with Bimby till he turned 7, that’s why I know he’s a real boy. Because even when a kid is still young, it’s already obvious if he’s gay. Naintindihan ko si Kris.”

He also expressed that he understands the reactions of Kris because she raised Bimby and he grew up with her. In the same intimate conversation, Kris admitted to her son that she wanted everything to work between her and his father but he was too young then and stressed that “you’re a lot braver when you’re young”. He was 11 years younger than her but she was hoping they could find a way to work things out but it did not happen. They have a huge age gap and they both came from two different worlds.
