Actor-comedian Vhong Navarro has denied reports pertaining to a police blotter stating his alleged “rape” attempt on a 22-year-old girl in a condominium in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.

News about the blotter came out after media learned that Navarro was beaten by a group of men on Jan.22. He claimed that the complainant, a “Deniece Millet Cornejo,” conspired with his assailants.

In an exclusive interview on “Buzz Ng Bayan,” Navarro said that Cornejo is an old friend, admitting that he went twice to her condominium. The first time was on Jan. 17 at around 10:54 p.m.

“Sinundo niya ako sa lobby. Nagpunta po ako doon ng may dalang white wine dahil ‘yun lang daw po ang puwede niyang inumin

“Naginuman po kami, may nangyari po pero walang sexual intercourse…” he claimed.

Navarro narrated that he went home after that, stressing that their meeting ended well.

“Maayos po ang paghihiwalay namin,” he said. “Kasi kung ayaw niya sana, sumigaw siya ng ‘Rape!’  (at) sana meron akong kalmot pag-uwi, may mga galos ako o meron siyang galos.”

On his way home, the actor supposedly received a text message from Cornejo that read: “Badboy ka.”

“Bawi ako next time,” he said to have replied.

Navarro said that he went back to Cornejo’s condominium unit on Jan.22 at around 10:45 p.m. He narrated that Cornejo immediately left the room after Navarro was welcomed inside and then two men allegedly attacked and pointed a gun at him.

Navarro said that around five men followed and also helped beat him up.

“Tinali yung kamay ko, tinali yung paa ko, tapos yung ulo ko po. Nilagay nila ako sa sahig pinagsasapak ako ni Cedric habang may nakatutuok sa aking baril,” claimed Navarro, who later added that the alleged assailant's name is "Lee."

Navarro also claimed that his perpetrators pulled down his pants and took a video of his private part. He was allegedly forced to face the camera and say “Ako si Vhong Navarro at ni-rape ko ang kaibigan ko.”

Navarro was then brought to a police precinct where Cornejo accused him of abusing her.

“Pagdating doon, may logbook, nagsasalaysay na si Deniece. Kinakausap ako nung Mike (the other alleged assailant), sabi niya, ‘Sinasabi ko sa 'yo, sundin mo lang gusto namin, ibigay mo lang 'yung gusto namin, wala kang video na lalabas. Walang media na lalabas basta ibigay mo lang yung usapan natin.’… (tapos) pinapirma na ako sa blotter.”

The men allegedly asked for P1 million as payment for the supposed “damage” he had done to Cornejo, and for their silence regarding the incident, to which Navarro agreed.

A police blotter of the incident, as previously reported by GMA-7 News, stated that the comedian (Ferdinand Navarro, real life name) is accused of trying to “rape” the girl. The complainant claimed that Navarro forced her to lie on bed and also pulled down her short pants.

The “It’s Showtime” host decided to speak up on the matter four days after the incident.

“Hindi ako rapist. Hindi ako nagda-drugs. Matino akong tao, may takot ako sa Diyos,” he said. “Kung hindi ko lalakasan ang loob ko, tulad nga ng sinasabi ko, kung nangyari sa akin ito, I’m sure pwedeng ulitin. Pwedeng mangyari ulit.”

He added: “Paano kung nagbigay ako ng P1 million? Wala akong assurance kung ilalabas ba nila 'yung video or what.”
