TV host Kris Aquino cancelled her scheduled public appearances yesterday in Cebu city. Which has raised speculation that her marriage is once again on the rocks.
She sent her close friend and TV co-host Boy Abunda to face her fans in a meet-and-greet organized by an orange juice brand she endorses.
“Kris and her husband James Yap are currently facing a very big problem,” explained Boy, who apologized on stage to a crowd in Consolacion, which had waited for hours for Kris Aquino who is also the sister of President Noynoy Aquino. He carried out distributing school supplies to students at Don Vicente Rama Memorial School in barangay Basak, Cebu City and in a school in Consolacion town
“They are not okay yet,” Abunda said referring to Kris and her basketball celebrity husband James.He said Kris had phoned him the night before to ask him to take her place in her Cebu commitments. Kris Aquino was supposed to meet fans and do press interviews at the Gaisano mall in Basak, Mandaue City at 11 a.m. then lead an outreach activity in a school at 1 p.m.
“I speak on behalf of Kris as a friend and as a brother. She continues to do everything to save her marriage,” Abunda stated. Kris has been distributing school supplies in provinces as part of a campaign promise she had made for supporters of her brother President-elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III. The province and city of Cebu gave Aquino almost 1 million votes in the May 10 elections.
The marriage of the Yaps has been an ongoing saga and controversy in more recent days news websites have began to report a widening rift between the couple. This speculation was also boosted when Kris Aquino said she would no longer post messages on Twitter which resulted in ABS-CBN running a story on her titled “Marital woes prompt Kris to lie low on Twitter?”
