“It’s Showtime” host, Vhong Navarro has faced a circumstance similar to what “Tawag ng Tanghalan” champion, Noven Belleza is experiencing. The actor-host faced multiple rape charges from model, Deniece Cornejo. The cases against him was dismissed in October 2014 and he hoped that the issue with the singer can also be resolved.
Belleza is accused of s*xually assaulting a teenager while he was in Cebu. He performed in the city as a guest of Vice Ganda’s concert. After the performance, he was arrested by the officials of Mabolo Police Station for allegedly raping a 19-year-old girl.
The said victim told the police that she was molested by the singer at the condominium where he was staying. She asserted that Belleza placed his finger inside her private area. However, according to investigations, the girl and Noven were actually not strangers. They knew each other through text messaging.
Navarro gave his say on the issue, but it appears that leaving a statement was not easy for him. He said that he understands Belleza’s circumstances as he has experienced something similar to it. The host hopes that the singer surpasses what he is facing.
In an interview with Pep.ph, the actor said, “Ang hirap kasi e sa sitwasyon na yun dahil alam ko naman may pinagdadaanan din akong parang halos sa ganong sitwasyon na hindi totoo… So sana lang, e, kung ano man yung pinagdaanan ni Noven, sana maayos at kung ano yung tama, magawan nila ng paraan.”
Vhong is starring in an upcoming film, “Woke Up Like This” alongside Lovi Poe. The movie will be screened in all cinemas nationwide on August 4.
