James Yap Posts Another ‘Sweet’ Photo With Italian GFJames Yap seems to be showing off his current girlfriend, an Italian woman named Michela. They may not be frequently spotted in any romantic place in Metro Manila but every once in a while, Yap is trying to share their intimate moments online.
The professional basketball star has recently shared another ‘sweet’ picture featuring him and Michela. Last July 21 (Sunday), Yap posted the photograph in his personal Instagram account. In the image, Yap is sitting down while his girlfriend stoops down behind him to give him a big hug. The lovers appear to be enjoying a private time having tea together as suggested by their background. It was not indicated where and when the picture could have been taken.
In his Instagram account, the picture had a simple caption “1.” His Instagram followers rushed to make their own comments. Most of them described the photograph as ‘sweet.’ In just a few hours after the posting, the picture generated about 2,700 ‘likes.’
It could be noted that while Yap tries to be a little open about his lovelife, he is still evasive whenever being asked about his current girlfriend. He has always emphasized that he intends to keep his personal life private. For the first time, he admitted his relationship with Michela earlier this month. Before that admission, several of their pictures together circulated online.
Yap has been vocal to say that he loves Michela because she is supportive. He revealed that his girlfriend knew about his past before they even dated. He simply describes her ‘as supportive all the way.’ Many observers note that the Italian woman seems unaffected by the recent series of controversies that hounded the basketball star.
It is a common knowledge that Yap used to be married to celebrity talk show host, box office queen, and presidential sister Kris Aquino. They ended their marriage several years ago allegedly when Aquino discovered about his philandering ways.
A couple of months ago, Aquino revealed in public that Yap tried to molest her while he was visiting their son Bimby in her place. Aquino disclosed that she felt gravely offended by how Yap treated her in her own bedroom. To this, Yap simply said he was kidding when he attempted to kiss Aquino in front of Bimby.
Just recently, both parties entered into an agreement regarding Yap’s visitation rights over their son. The legal dispute between Aquino and Yap has already been resolved. Yap has always been vocal that his focus is now on taking care of Bimby despite the fact that the child lives with his mom.
