Actress, TV host and Presidential sister Kris Aquino’s lawyers say that her grounds for ending her marriage to basketball player James Yap will shock the public, reports 24 Oras. One of Aquino’s lawyers, Atty. Anna Liza Logan told GMA 7 reporter Nelson Canlas that Aquino wants "to let James Yap know that she (Aquino) is serious this time; that this is final."

According to Logan, they are just awaiting Aquino’s return from the U.S. to file the petition for declaration of nullity of Aquino and Yap’s marriage. The lawyers did not disclose their grounds for dissolving the marriage and asked the public to not speculate. Aquino’s other lawyer Atty. Anne Goboy-Lapuz told Santiago,"We do not want to give the court an impression that we are already trying the case in public."

Aquino’s lawyers, however, say there might be a way to halt the impending legal battle. "Kung maligawan niya ulit tapos mapasagot niya ulit, I guess that’s the only thing that can stop this," said Logan.

Yap can start negotiations with Aquino’s camp according to Logan. "There are things naman na pwedeng pag-agree-han like ’yung visitation, arrangement, ’yung mga bagay na ’yun, kung gusto niya nang umpisahan," said Logan.

Yap refused to comment further on the matter and said he does not want to complicate matters, and asked the public for understanding.
