MANILA, Philippines – Despite being estranged from each other, Kris Aquino defended her former husband, James Yap, from allegations of game fixing during Game 6 of the Philippines Basketball Association (PBA) semifinals between Yap’s San Mig Super Coffee Mixers and the Ginebra San Miguel Kings.
The allegation came after Yap was called for a loose-ball foul and missed a 3-point desperation shot in the fourth quarter of the game against the Kings on Monday, allowing the Ginebra franchise to escape with a thrilling 94-91 victory.
On Wednesday, San Mig won the do-or-die Game 7 against the Kings to win the semi-final series and gain a slot for the finals against Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.
Kris Aquino said she knows Yap enough to believe he will never sell his game. She defended him in an episode of “Aquino and Abunda Tonight, in which she said: “Sa matagal na panahon na kilala ko si James Yap at nakilala ko ang buong pagkatao niya, hindi niya gagawing magbenta ng laro dahil buong buhay niya binuhos niya for that.” (Click here to read more)
