Halloween came early this year for actor and Cebu City north district congressional aspirant Richard Yap.
A certain Joshua Paolo Jensen has come out to haunt him.
The 24-year-old from Cavite is seeking recognition as his son — something that Richard denied.
It didn’t stop Joshua from pursuing his case, though.
Last Thursday, October 28, he filed with the Cebu Regional Trial Court a case for compulsory recognition against the actor.
Richard is convinced the stunt is “politically motivated.”
Note that Joshua has since challenged Richard to allow for a DNA test.
Richard said no.
He told reporters, ““I think it is for our lawyers to talk about. If I accept (the challenge) that means that we are guilty or we are thinking that there is a chance but there is really none. Why should I agree to what they want?”
