Vhong Navarro opted not to comment on Deniece Cornejo slashing her wrist in protest to the dismissal of her second rape case against him. "Siguro sa isyu na 'yan a...wala akong masasabi doon. Basta ako nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng nagdarasal at sumusuporta sa akin," Vhong reiterated on Tuesday after his contract signing with ABS-CBN.
Deniece's counsel Atty. Salvador Panejo confirmed reports on his client’s actions on The Buzz on Sunday.
While he believes that his granddaughter has no suicidal tendencies, in the same report, Deniece's lolo Rod Cornejo revealed that she carved the letters "WR" into her wrist which he said stands for women's rights to symbolize her new life mission.
Deniece, who surrendered last May, is currently detained at the Philippine National Police headquarters in Quezon City after being charged with serious illegal detention over the mauling of Vhong last January 22 along with businessman Cedric Lee and his cohorts.
Instead of dwelling on the matter, the It's Showtime host preferred to focus his attention on his fans who have shown him unwavering support right from the beginning of his ordeal.
"Nakakatuwa every time na lalabas ako kahit saan ako pumunta mayroon pa ding lumalapit sa aking mga nanay, lola, mga teenager [na nagsasabing], 'Ipinagdarasal ka pa din namin hanggang ngayon. Mula nung mangyari sa iyo yan hanggang ngayon hindi nawawala ang dasal namin sa iyo at naniniwala kami sa iyo,'" he shared.
Similar to his previous interviews, the dancer-comedian noted that it's through his fans' support that he is continuously getting through the legal battle.
"Diyan ako humuhugot ng lakas at siyempre sa Panginoon. Iba ang ating Panginoon, 'God is good' 'yan ang lagi kong sinasabi kasi ang mga dasal ko ibinibigay niya sa akin lahat. Siyempre ang mga tao na nagdarasal para sa akin 'yun ang isa sa malakas, kaya hanggang ngayon ay nakakatayo ako sa harapan nila para makapagpasaya," he said.
Meanwhile, Vhong who has been with the Kapamilya network for more than two decades now also mentioned the support of his home network.
“Ay nako napakasarap ng pakiramdam, dahil ang Kapamilya ko ay hindi ako inwan. Kumbaga mas lalo pang pinagtagal ang aming pagsasama at ang pagmamahal ng aking Kapamilya network ay sagad hanggang buto. Talagang pinaparamdam nila na isa kang Kapamilya. Di ba sa lahat ng dumaan na pagsubok sakin, nandiyan sila, hindi nila ako kinalimutan. Mas lalo nila akong minahal at niyakap at tinanggap ng buong puso,” he said.
