MANILA -– Former celebrity couple Kris Aquino and James Yap have come to a compromise regarding  their son James "Bimby" Yap Jr.


However, due to a court gag order, both parties were not able to give details on their agreement. It was also not clear whether their initial arrangement regarding Yap’s visitation schedule would be implemented.

But an insider, who asked not to be named, said that one vital part of the former couple’s agreement is that Yap will be paying for their six-year-old son’s education.

The source said Aquino had been paying for Bimby’s tuition fees in an international school, which amounts to more or less P700,000 per year.

Two years earlier, Aquino and Yap had agreed that the star basketball player can visit their son from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Wednesday and from 4:30 p.m. every Friday until 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Aquino told reporters that she and Yap were able to come to a compromise.

“I am happy na may compromise,” she said. “Any mother would always want what would be for the best para sa anak niya and I think the decision of Judge Sulit today and ang inayos niyang agreement between both parties would really benefit my son very much and anything that will benefit my son is always going to be my priority.”

Aquino and Yap conferred at the Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 140 Monday last week.

“Sana mag-focus kami kung paano namin papalakihin ang anak naming ng maayos. Sana maging successful kami bilang nanay at tatay,” Yap said before the closed-door meeting started.

“Move on na, move forward. Basta ang iniisip ko lang talaga, ang anak ko,” he added.

After the conference, which lasted for almost two hours, the two looked satisfied with Judge Christina Sulit’s decision.
