Just recently, James Yap has captured the attention of the press after he revealed that it's been eight months since he last saw his son, Bimby. He also added that he's supposed to visit Bimby every Friday but then, the schedule isn't followed.
James Yap even added that he's hoping that his son will be able to choose who he wants to be with in the future.
“Naghihintay na lang ako na magkaroon ng kumbaga, ilang taon na ba si Bimby... ten. Sana pagdating niya ng 17, may desisyon na siyang sarili niya, kung gusto niya akong makita, gusto niya akong makita, tatay niya, anytime dito ako. And for me kung tatanungin mo ako na isiksikan ko pa sarili ko kasi ang hirap eh isiksikan mo sarili mo tapos talagang wala namang development parang maaano ka rin eh, kumbaga sorry sa word, magsasawa ka rin eh kasi masasaktan ka lang,” he said
However, it seems that Kris didn't like what James Yap said and so she decided to speak up about James' visitation rights to Bimby.
On her Facebook account, Kris pleaded her ex-husband to not speak up about his child in public. He also asked him not to use his own son for publicity.
“James Yap- stop using Bimb for publicity, most especially when you are opening a BAR! That is the wrong venue to be discussing your relationship (or in this case lack of one) with your son. The proper thing to do would have been to answer, "THIS ISN'T THE CORRECT VENUE TO DISCUSS MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY SON AND I WOULD APPRECIATE IF YOU COULD RESPECT OUR PRIVACY (sic),” Kris said
Kris also stated that James Yap didn't even do a single thing to spend time with Bimby.

“YOU HAVEN'T EXERTED EFFORT TO GET TO KNOW HIM, SPEND TIME WITH HIM, MUCH LESS CONSISTENTLY CONTRIBUTE FINANCIALLY TO HIS NEEDS (sic) (the last time you "shared" for tuition was when Bimb was in 2nd grade- 3 full years ago, I have let that be since God has more than adequately been generous with us and I believe that a father's financial responsibility should naturally come from his heart.) I maintained communication lines with Mic because she tried to get to know both Bimb and Kuya Josh, and had simple, yet genuinely thoughtful gestures for them. Can you honestly say that you tried to become closer to Bimb?”
“Hindi kita ginugulo. Binigyan ko ng respeto ang bago mong partner na si Mic- napakahirap bang bigyan mo rin ng respeto ang anak natin at huwag mo na siyang gamitin para mapag-usapan ang bago mong negosyo? Naiintindihan ko na hindi maiiwasan na matanong ka tungkol kay Bimb, pero hindi mahirap ang tumangging sumagot alang-alang na lang sa kapakanan ng bata.”
Although money isn't a problem for Kris, she still hopes that her ex-husband should at least extend his support for Bimby.CLICK PAGE 3 TO WATCH THE VIDEO
“DO NOT PLAY THE VICTIM AGAIN- because a man who walked away with millions from an annulment settlement from a marriage that lasted just 4 years can never be a victim especially when he is portraying a 10 year old boy as the one at "fault" in not liking him and making him feel na "magsasawa ka at masasaktan ka lang (sic)."
