Award-winning broadcast journalist Tony Calvento confirmed Vhong Navarro and Cedric Lee’s chance encounter Thursday, November 20 during the grand opening night of Valkyrie Night Club at the Bonifacio Global City reportedly.
Comedian Vice Ganda who is one of the investor of the said club invited Vhong and Billy Crawford to attend the opening night. According to the report, Vhong agreed to attend the event with the assurance that businessman Cedric Lee whose friend is one of the investors is not included in the guest list.
Despite not included in the guest list, Lee appeared in the event prompting Vhong to immediately leave the place to avoid any untoward incident.
“To avoid any untoward incident, Vhong and the rest of the Showtime group decided to leave the place. There were no untoward incident and it is not true that Cedric tried to sit on the Showtime table where Vice, Vhong, Billy and the rest were.
“He did not even try to talk to Vice while Vhong was there. Cedric did not talk to Vhong nor whisper anything to his ears as gossips have it.
“Vice escorted Vhong to his car and the rest of the group. Vhong was with some security men. Vhong did not know anything more about what happened after they left,” Calvento said.
Lee is one of the primary suspects when Vhong was mauled and illegally detained last January 22.
Lee and his group were detained however released after posting a bail.
