Viel Aquino: Our family opposed Kris’ marriage to James too

24 Oras report: Kris Aquino’s sister retorts to statement of James Yap’s mother

Reacting to what James Yap’s mother Annie said about her being against James and Kris Aquino’s relationship at the onset, Kris’ elder sister Viel Aquino-Dy told 24 Oras that their family also opposed the couple’s marriage. "Kung tutuusin, we were also not really for the marriage. First of all, the age difference. (Kris was 34 and James was 23 when they got married; Kris is now 39 and James is 28.) Parang it was too quick a courtship. Kami rin, we thought na pag-isipan muna (nila). (Actually, we were also not really for the marriage. First of all, there’s their age difference. Also, it was too quick a courtship. We thought the two should have thought it over.)"

Despite these concerns, Viel said their family supported the relationship. According to, Viel understands Annie’s defense of her son James.

Kris is currently taking legal action to have her and James’ five-year marriage declared void from the beginning. They have one son, three-year-old Baby James.
