Richard Yap was asked about the person who claimed to be his son
To recall, the 24-year-old from Cavite filed a petition for a “compulsory recognition of natural child” or “acknowledgment of paternity and affiliation”. However, Richard strongly denied this issue saying that it has political color in it.
The actor, who is running for congressman in Cebu, claimed that this black propaganda against him was made up by his opponent. Prisca Niña Mabati, Richard’s opponent, also denied that she has something to do with this but she challenged the actor to have a DNA test.
Amid this issue, Inquirer Entertainment columnist Dolly Anne Carvajal asked Richard Yap about his reaction to the claim of Joshua Paolo Jensen.
The actor said that he does not want to talk about it in public as his legal counsel is already doing something about this. Richard also shared that his family believes that his opponent in politics is behind this.
“I would rather not discuss that as this should be addressed in the proper venue such as the court since the claim really has no merit. My family stands by me and believes that this is a purely political smear campaign,” he said.
Meanwhile, Richard Yap also shared the support that he got from his family when he was infected with the virus.
“I would attribute it to the support of my family. Without them and their unceasing prayers, I don’t know if I would have made it. I realized that we don’t hold our own life in our hands, so we have to be thankful for each day we are alive and do the best we can to be a blessing to others because, in the end, that is what matters most,” the actor shared.
