James Yap has defended his son Bimby from netizens who are speculating about his son’s s3xual orientation.
In a heart-to-heart conversation with Kris Aquino previously, she told her son that she will accept every choice he will make and to the person that he will become in the end following the issues regarding his gender preference.
But Bimby put an end to those speculations and said that he’s straight.
“If you think I’m 6ay, alright. But you do realize that the 6ay community sa Philippines is a strong community. And you do realize that I’m 14. I know what I am. I’m straight as an arrow,” he quipped.
And now, with these rumors about Bimby seemingly never-ending online, his father professional basketball player James Yap, finally spoke for and refuted such as he defended his 14-year-old son.
In Dolly Anne Carvajal’s recent Inquirer column, James said that his son is not 6ay.
“I’ve been quiet about the issue that Bimby is supposedly gay. Because I know for sure that he is not gay. I don’t believe in gossip,” James said in Ilonggo.
The Rain or Shine point guard said he knew that his son is a real boy because he was with him until he turned seven years old.
“I was with Bimby till he turned 7, that’s why I know he’s a real boy. Because even when a kid is still young, it’s already obvious if he’s gay. Naintindihan ko si Kris. S’yempre Bimby grew up with her, so of course she reacted to the issue,” James said.
Dolly Anne, mother of actor and TV host IC Mendoza, supported James’ statement.
“Since I have a gay son, IC Mendoza, I get ‘migo’ James’ drift. Long before IC ‘came out’ to me, I already knew he was gay. That’s what a parent’s gut feeling can do,” she said.
