In separate interviews, Cedric Lee, the man in the spotlight regarding the brutal beating of Vhong Navarro, said that he will face whatever charges the actor will file against him. In his DZMM Teleradyo interview with Karen Davila and Vic Lima, Cedric stated that he has no intentions of leaving the country.
“Haharapin ko ang kaso. Di ako tatakbo,” he said.
He also denied that Deniece is his girlfriend.
When asked if he had any regrets regarding the incident, Cedric said he’s willing to do what he did to Vhong should it happen again.
In his interview on ABS-CBN News Channel, Cedric also answered pressing questions from social media, including the ones questioning where he got the duct tape he used to bind Vhongs hands and legs.
“Yung duct tape, I’m not sure if it’s a packaging tape or duct tape kasi naglilipat pa lang si Deniece, she just transferred there for a few days. Less than a week, so may mga ginamit siya na balikbayan boxes. Siguro yun yung tape na ginamit niya,” he related.
He also shared that some women have expressed to him that they are thinking of filing charges against Vhong as they also suffered Deniece’s alleged ordeal.
“Sa mga taong naniniwala naman sa akin, sa mga babaeng dati na niyang nabiktima, actually anim o pitong babae na ang tumawag sa akin contemplating if they’re going to come out and also file charges against Vhong,” Cedric revealed.
The businessman denied Vhong’s accusations that they hurt his genitals during the incident.
“He’s saying hinawakan namin yung private parts niya? Napakababoy naman nun. Naabutan naming nakahubad doon tapos ipapasa niya sa amin,” Cedric said.
On the issue if people believe him or not, Cedric said he does not care what people are saying about him.
“Wala po akong pakialam kung murahin ako ng buong Pilipinas. Hindi ko kailangan ang palakpak ng buong taong bayan. ‘Di ko kailangan na maniwala sila sa akin. And ‘di ako tatakbo sa politics, ‘di ko kailangan ang boto nila. ‘Di rin po ako magaartista o magsho-showbiz, murahin nila ako kung gusto nila, lalabas din ang katotohanan.”
