Vhong Navarro, comedian-TV host in ABS-CBN’s Showtime, denied rape allegations and claimed that he was attacked upon arrival in his friend’s condo.
In an exclusive interview in the talk show “The Buzz,” Vhong claimed that the event was staged to blackmail him into giving money. “They want me to give them Php 1-million. From 200,000 it went up to 500,000 until it reached 1-million and eventually 2-million.”
He said that they forced him to sign a police blotter stating that he raped Deniece Milet Cornejo, the alleged rape victim and his friend who owns the Bonifacio Global City condo unit where he was attacked. ”It was indicated in the document that they won’t pursue the case, that they won’t file complaints because we have a deal. The police blotter was designed to protect them in case I tell the authorities the truth.”
Vhong also mentioned the name of the alleged mastermind, Cedric Lee, who apparently, led the group who attacked him. “…I recognized him (when he went into the room). At first, he (Cedric) introduced himself and then he tied up my hands and feet. He shoved me to the floor and started hitting me.”
