Journalist Tony Calvento confirmed that Vhong Navarro did see Cedric Lee last November 20, Thursday, during a party to mark the opening of a new bar in Bonifacio Global City.
According to him it was Vhong’s It’s Showtime co-host Vice Ganda who invited him to the party.
“Cedric Lee was not in the guest list so Vhong acceded to Vice Ganda's invitation. He was with two companions,” Tony said.
Cedric was able to attend the party because he is a friend of one of the club’s owners, where Vice was also a part-owner.
“There were no untoward incident and it is not true that Cedric tried to sit on the Showtime table where Vice, Vhong, Billy [Crawford] and the rest were,” Tony said.
Contrary to rumors, Tony even added that, “Cedric did not talk to Vhong nor whisper anything to his ears as gossips have it.”
But he did confirm that Vhong left the venue soon after they learned Cedric was also there.
“To avoid any untoward incident, Vhong and the rest of the Showtime group decided to leave the place. Vice escorted Vhong to his car and the rest of the group. Vhong was with some security men,” he said. “Vhong did not know anything more about what happened after they left.”
To learn more about what happened, Tony shared that he also spoke with the Gandang Gabi Vice host who told him that he was surprised that Cedric was at the venue “when he wasn't even in the guest list.”
Quoting Vice, Tony also shared, “Someone whispered to him that Cedric was seated at the table behind Vice so he turned and saw him but didn't really recognize him. Cedric was looking at the direction of Vhong's table.”
After Vhong left, Tony shared that Vice went back inside to the venue and could no longer find Cedric.
Vhong filed serious illegal detention charges against Cedric and his camp after he was assaulted at Deniece Cornejo’s rented condominium in The Fort in January this year.
