Manila, Philippines – Star cager James Yap, Husband of Kris Aquino, has broken his silence on the “confrontation” between his wife and a female fan, Mayen Autria.
Yap defended his wife against her critics about the incident. He also emphasized that Mayen is not his girlfriend.
“Hindi naman totoo ‘yon, hindi naman totoo. Siyempre lumalabas na naman ngayon na babae ko ‘yon. Hindi ko naman mabi-blame si Kris na mag-react ng ganoon. May karapatan naman si Kris na mag-react ng ganoon dahil asawa niya ako,” Yap said.
In 20047, Yap was rumored to have had a romantic affair with Hope Centeno, receptionist at the Belo Medical clinic then. It was the second time that the yap couple’s love troubles have made headlines. Yap denied the rumors.
“When he answered, I heard a girl crying. I could hear their conversation because it was quiet in the house. Sinasabi noong girl, ginawa ko naman lahat… then James answered na kung ayaw sa ‘yo, ‘wag mo pagpilitan ang sarili mo,” Aquino narrated.
She said she asked Yap who called and he told her that it was Austria.
“Sabi ni James nagsabi sa kanya na iniwan daw ng isang guy and ‘di alam ang gagawin. I asked him kung kilala niya iyong guy, he said no. So nagtaka ako, I said bakit ikaw ang iniiyakan?”
“I pointed out to James it was not proper. Baka she (Austria) was under the illusion that I’m not real, that I’m just a TV personality. So gusto ko puntahan para pakita na flesh and blood ako… tao ako… at misis ako,” Aquino added.
She said she went to see Austria, who lived two streets away from their house. She said she rang the doorbell and Austria’s mom came out.
“I said ma’am, I wanted to let you know, your daughter has been calling my husband and I’m not comfortable about it,” she said.
“Never ako nagmura, never nanlait. Pinaramdam ko lang ang aking displeasure, siyempre asawa ako,” said Aquino.
