Vic Sotto and Dina Bonnevie

James Yap and Kris Aquino
Probably one of the most controversial split ups ever in philippine showbizness is the break up of James and Kris. the two got married in July 2005. But local viewers thought it was just a hoax, and did not believe it until Kris gave birth to a son, whom he named Baby James, on 2007. Their relationship was treated as the most controversial because Kris is “Kris” and James, well, he just seemed super out of the league for her. Although their immediate break-up was not surprising, the drama behind it was. There were a lot of rumors and tell-tell stories about their breakup in 2010. After that break-up, Kris immediately filed for an annulment. Two years after, the grant was approved.
