James Yap Says He Is Happy With His LoveJames Yap appears to have moved on quite well from his tumultuous relationship with controversial presidential sister Kris Aquino.
At the sidelines of a press conference held recently by a business he endorses, Yap was asked how his current love life is.
He said, “Basta masasabi ko lang... masaya ako. Masaya na tapos na lahat ng problema, sana wala nang mangyari. Pagdating sa mga gano'ng bagay -- love life -- happy tayo.”
Yap and girlfriend Michela Cazzola, an Italian woman he met in the country, have been a couple for more than a year now. Cazzola works as a secretariat specialist at the Asian Development Bank.
Yap’s relationship with Cazzola comes after his relationship with Aquino who is the mother of their son, James Yap Jr. Aquino has been fond of calling their son Bimby after the two of them separated.
Aquino and Yap have been involved in battles in the courtroom and in the media earlier this year.
Of this, Yap said, “Sana wala nang gulo na darating sa buhay ko. Masaya ako dahil tapos na lahat, at pinag-pe-pray ko na hindi na maulit 'yung nangyari sa akin. Kumbaga, sana makapag-focus na ako sa ginagawa ko, na basketball player.”
Now that it seems Yap is very happy and stable in his relationship, he was asked whether he would soon settle down again.
“Wala pa. Gaya nang sabi ko, wala pa sa isip ko ang kasal-kasal,” he said.
Asked about having another child, this time with Cazzola, he said, “Yari tayo diyan! Relax!”
