- James Yap is giving up on reaching out to Bimby
- He felt that no matter what he does, it’s all useless
- He decided to just wait for Bimby to grow up and have a mind of his own
For the first time, James Yap admitted that he had already given up on reaching out to his son, James Aquino-Yap Jr., popularly known as Bimby.
According to an article written by Gorgy Rula for Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) , James disclosed in an interview on the radio program of DZRH “Showbiz Talk Ganern” that he feels that no matter what he does to reach out to Bimby, his son with his former wife, Kris Aquino, it seems that there’s no use.
He said: “Kumbaga, sa totoo lang, honestly, parang ano… gumive-up na rin ako. Kasi sobrang… parang walang napapatunguhan, e. Ang effort mo, lahat, parang hindi nadi-develop. Nag-decide na lang ako na, tutal magkaroon din siya [Bimby] ng isip, lalaki rin siya at magkakaroon din siya ng isip sa sarili niya, hintayin na lang natin yung time.”
[Honestly, I’m already giving up. Because it feels like it’s useless. Despite all my effort, nothing has been developed. So I had decided that eventually, Bimby will grow up and have a mind of his own, so let’s just wait for that.]
James said that because he hasn’t seen Bimby for so long, he wasn’t able to personally tell him about his new baby brother, Michael James, James’ son with his longtime Italian girlfriend, Michela Cazzola.
Previously, the basketball player said that he’s really hoping that his sons would get to know each other and his thought hasn’t changed.
“Ang iniisip ko kasi, magkapatid sila; paglaki nila, magkakilala sila. Why not, di ba? Mabuting makita niya ang baby brother niya. Sinabi ko naman talaga na anytime, kung gusto niyang makita. Sana magkaroon siya ng time,” he said.
[I’m thinking that because they’re siblings, when they grow up, they’ll meet each other. Why not, right? It’s better if he gets to meet his baby brother. I’ve said that anytime he wants to meet him, he can. I hope he’ll have time.]
Aside from Bimby anc Michael James, James had an eldest child with his former girlfriend as well.
