Group of men mauled Vhong Navarro at The Fort, says Chito Roño



MANILA, Philippines—Even the upscale landscape get its fair share of petty violence.

Vhong Navarro was tied-up and attacked by a group of men inside a condominium unit at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig on Wednesday, according to his manager.

Chito Roño, a film director and Navarro’s manager, said that a female friend invited the television host to visit her in her condominium unit and was subsequently tied and beat up by a group of men upon his arrival.

“Justice must be given to Vhong Navarro for the inhuman treatment he received from unnarmed thugs,” Roño said in a statement.

The director added that Navarro was threatened and was a victim of extortion and his camp has yet to determine the motive behind the attack.

Roño said that Navarro would be temporarily gone from the noontime show “It’s Showtime” to treat his injuries. With a report from Bayani San Diego Jr., Inquirer Entertainment

    We witnessed Vice Kabayo lambasted Jessica Suho, Anne Bunganga making sampal at Lloyd at now Vhong Bugbog.
    There must be something wrong with how ABS CBN takes care of its talents.

      host 1: iniwan ng gf kasi gusto maka score at ayaw ni gf
      host 2: lakas loob bumili ng tao kapag nalalasing.
      host 3: mahalay, bastos magsasalita, parang langaw sa ibabaw ng kabayo.
      host 4: nabogbog dahil sa muntik nang mang rape.

    Someone is obviously lying here. Vhong’s manager Chito Roño claims that Vhong was subjected to inhuman treatment by 6 unarmed thugs. On the other hand, GMA-7 reported today that Vhong attempted to rape the 22-year old occupant of the condo unit. The complaint was filed in the Taguig PNP Station police blotter. The video below captures the blotter and even Vhong Navarro’s signature. According to the same blotter, the victim was rescued by 2 male friends who happened to visit her at the time of the attempted rape. For emphasis, 2 male friends and not 6. The 2 male friends after subduing Vhong made a citizen’s arrest and brought him to the police station. Just to be clear, Vhong is the rapist and the girl the victim. The 2 male friends are the good Samaritans who came to the rescue of the damsel in distress.

    Why ABS-CBN and Manager Chito Roño decided to leave out the other important details remains a mystery. Rather, why ABS-CBN and Manager Chito Roño chose to mislead the public and portray Vhong as the victim in this attempted rape case puts the credibility of both in serious question.

    For the GMA-7 report:
    google “Vhong Navarro, naka-blotter sa Taguig police dahil sa pamumuwersa daw sa 22-anyos na babae — report”

    Showtime should be replaced by Wowowee of Willie.
    At least kung may bugbugan man, si Willie lang ang makukulata.

    Nabogbog si Vhong ng mga DABARKADS dahil gusto mag SHOWTIME sa paboritong condo ng SC justice sa the FORT which happens to be the favorite place to put PDAF funds. Senator open an investigation in AID OF LEGISLATION. Invite the GUARDS OF THE SUBD for questioning so the MAYOR enters the scene. Later the WHISTLEBLOWERS will speak out to spill the RICE not the beans. LEILA will announce the CARTEL king. Meantime TANDA, SEXY and POGI prepares their PLUNDER defence. Hmm, time to open up another can of beer….

    hoy rono kumuha kayo ng mas magaling na script writer. yung mga pulpul na mga abogado na nagtatanggol sa alaga mong rapist hindi man lang magtugma ang sinasabi. pati ba mga pulis kasabwat dahil ang pagkasabi ay pinirmahan ni navarro yung blotter dahil may nakatutok na baril. mukha naman di ito kapanikapiwala. simple lang naman ang nangyari. inabutan yang alaga mo ng lib0g kaya nabugbug. ikaw ang magisip.

  • niknok
