MANILA, Philippines – Star cager James Yap has refused to issue further comments following the statement of his former wife Kris Aquino last week about them being not friends anymore.

In an interview with Push.com.ph, Yap thinks he and Aquino owe it to their son James Jr., or Bimby to many, to maintain a harmonious relationship.

“Ah well, no comment na ako diyan. Basta kung ano man 'yung mga misunderstanding na nangyari sa amin, ayaw ko nang mag-comment dahil isipin ko na lang na may anak kami,” he said.

Yap said he does not want to give Bimby a reason to feel bad when he learns about this problem when he grows up.

“Ayaw ko naman na paglaki ni Bimby ay susumbatan kami na, ‘Bakit kayo nag-away... Kailangan pang ipaalam sa public?’ ‘Di ba? Na, ‘Puwede bang ayusin niyo na lang dalawa?’ Ayaw ko na darating 'yung time na ganun na pagsabihan kami ng anak namin.” he said.

Yap said he’d rather focus on taking care of his son than to publicly discuss about his misunderstanding with Aquino.

“Kung ano man 'yung nasabi niya, hindi ko na lang… Basta, ayaw ko na lang sagutin. Basta mahalaga, naka-focus lang ako talaga sa anak ko and wala ng iba,” he explained.

The basketball player is also optimistic that he and Aquino will soon patch things up.

“I’m sure hindi naman kami for life na magkaaway eh. Kasi mayroon kaming anak, bali-baliktarin man, mayroon kaming Bimby. So hindi puwede 'yun. Hopefully, maayos. Actually, maliit lang na bagay,” he said.
