James Yap posts Instagram photo with rumored girlfriendBy Dennis Maliwanag
MANILA, Philippines–The Internet is abuzz over a photograph that PBA superstar James Yap posted Wednesday on Instagram, fuelling rumors the blonde girl with him in the photo is his new girlfriend.
The post came in the wake of his estranged partner Kris Aquino’s remark, wondering where the 31-year-old cager was on Sunday. Aquino was apparently expecting Yap to fetch their child, James “Bimby” Yap Jr., so the two could celebrate Father’s Day together.
The link of the photo that Yap posted on Twitter was hashtagged #italy #niceview. It shows Yap, who is touring Europe, with a Caucasian woman embracing him from behind with seascape as a backdrop.
Yap and Aquino had a highly-publicized breakup in 2010, with the presidential sister accusing the San Mig Coffee ace guard of being a womanizer.
And after a bitter custody fight, a Makati trial court allowed Yap late last month to regularly visit his six-year-old son even as it warned him not to go anywhere near the popular TV host and actress–at least not within 100 meters.
