Deniece Cornejo and Cedric Lee Insist Vhong Navarro is a Rapist!


Deniece Cornejo and Cedric Lee finally air their side of the story. Both of them insisted that Vhong Navarro attempted to rape Deniece which result to the assault of the It’s Showtime host.

Vhong had already revealed his story about the alleged rape attempt which he emphasized that he is not a rapist.

This time, Deniece and Cedric as expected defended themselves and both contradicted the statements released by Vhong.

Deniece Cornejo broke her silence in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News on Monday, stressing that she – and not host-actor Vhong Navarro – is the victim in last week’s incident at her condominium unit at The Fort in Taguig.

Appearing with siblings Cedric and Bernice Lee, Cornejo said she is ready to file charges against Navarro for attempting to rape her.

“Isa lang po masasabi ko. If you want justice, I’ll give you the real justice. Mataas, napakataas ng paghanga ko sa mga lalaki na marunong rumespeto at ipagtanggol ang mga kababaihan. Kung meron mang inosente at biktima rito, wala nang iba kung hindi ako,” she told ABS-CBN News reporter Jay Ruiz.

Addressing Navarro, who was beaten up last Wednesday, Cornejo said: “Vhong, hindi ko kailangang umiyak, ipakita na awang awa ako [sa sarili ko]. Sa lahat ng mga naniniwala at sumusuporta sa tao, lalo na sa ’yo – at wala akong kalaban-laban dahil alam kong marami kang napasayang tao – magaling kang artista, idolo kita. Pero sa mata ng prinsipyo, ang mali ay mananatiling mali at hinding hindi mananalo ang kasamaan sa kabutihan.”

Cornejo said she initially wanted to keep the incident under wraps, saying she wanted to lead a private life.

However, she said she had no choice but to speak up because her reputation has been affected by Navarro’s statements.

“Uulitin ko. As much as possible, gusto kong maging pribado buhay ko at ayokong lumaki nang ganito. Hindi ko ito pinili, pinili niya ito. Pero kung ang pangalan ko ang nakasalalay dito at reputasyon ko, ibang usapan na ‘yun,” she stressed.

“I’ve consulted my lawyer. Pero for now, medyo nato-trauma ako sa mga ganyang ugali at saka pangyayari,” she added.

‘Vhong wasn’t courting me’

In the exclusive interview, Cornejo denied that Navarro has been courting her.

“Hindi naman po [nanliligaw]. Siguro na-impress siya, na gusto niya ako,” she said.

When asked if Navarro himself told her that he likes her, Cornejo said: “Hindi ko masabi… Kasi ano siya, komedyante.”

According to Cornejo, she was shocked by Navarro’s so-called sexual advances.

“Opo… Gustong gusto kong lumaban,” she said.

Meanwhile, Cornejo admitted that she is related to a top executive in another network.

“Lolo ko po ‘yung isa sa mga matataas na posisyon sa kabilang network,” she said, not mentioning a specific name.

Meanwhile, here’s the transcript of Cedric Lee’s Interview:

“We were suppose to go together, with my sister together with one of our friend,  we were suppose to pick Denise Millet Cornejo from her condo unit at the Fort. At around 10:30, we arrive at 10:30 to 11, I forgot the exact time, when we went up to the second floor, upon reaching the door of her condo unit, we heard some screaming inside, so we thought may nag-aaway lang so fortunately the door was unlocked, so we were able to go inside, wala namang tao doon sa sala so dumiretso na lang kami sa bedroom, dahil yung bedroom naman nila ay kurtina lang walang pintuan.

Nakita ko yung isang lalaki na nakahubad na at nakababa na yung shorts nya nakapatong kay Denise at si Denise ay nagsisigawan at pinagpapadyak ang isang lalaki, so ang instinct ko I grab him at the back at hinila ko siya pababa ng tama tapos tumayo siya, si Denise tumakbo sa sister ko at nilabas na siya ng sister ko sa condo unit, at ang naiwan sa loob ng condo ay ako at yung lalaki na hindi ko pa kilala at that time si Vhong at ang kaibigan ko.

Pumapalag itong lalaking to nang gusto na namin siyang dalhin sa presinto, pumapalag siya at nanuntok siya tumayo siya at pilit niyang sinusuot yung pants niya, napagtulungan namin siya ng kaibigan (Zimmer) ko dahil dalawa naman kami, nahila namin siya palabas ng bedroom at nahila namin siya sa sala, pilit namin siyang  pinipin down para maaresto siya at madala sa presinto, kaya lang sa kakapalag niya, nanuntok siya muna, napilitan na rin kaming suntukin siya pabalik at hanggang sa naupakan na namin siya ng ganon hanggang sa nagkabasag-basag ang mukha niya.

Buti na lang nakakuha kami ng isang duct tape don at tinape namin yung kamay at mga paa niya para di na siya makapalag at makatakbo, tapos nakatawag kami ng police tapos non hinihintay namin ang iba pa naming kaibigang makatawag ng police, tinanong namin kung ano yung ginagawa niya, inamin naman niya sa amin at humingi ng paumanhin- “pinagtangka-an niyang gahasain si Denise,” humihingi nga siya ng paumanhin na wag na daw namin siyang e turn over sa police, baka makasira raw sa career niya at hindi niya na alam kung ano ang ipapaliwanag niya sa mga anak niya, so sabi ko hindi ako ang makakapag desisyon niyan dahil hindi naman ako ang victim dito, dun ka na lang sa presinto magpaliwanag, so in regard with this I called up some of our men.”
