This is according to Kris' friend Boy Abunda, who reported the news on late night newscast "Bandila".
“Pormal nang annulled ang kasal ni Kris Aquino kay James Yap,” Boy said on Thursday, February 2.
Abunda cited "lack of authority of the solemnizing officer" as the reason why the annulment, being null and void from the beginning, was granted by the court.
He added the annulment was received by Kris as early as January this year. Everything was settled from the division of their properties to the visitation rights of their son James. Kris is in full custody of their son "Bimby".
Kris confirmed the news on her Twitter page and said she only wish her former husband all the happiness in the world.
"Going to HK Disney w/ josh & bimby. Need this weekend to just be the 5 of us (me, my 2 sons & yaya A & Gerbel). Yes I'm annulled & can only wish for James & me lasting happiness & genuine friendship for Bimby's sake (sic)."
Kris and James were married in July 10, 2005. Five years after, Kris announced that their marriage is over.
