Vhong Navarro Is Beaten By Six Guys
According to his manager director Chito Rono, Vhong was invited by a friend to her condominium unit.
He was then tied, gagged and blindfolded by six unidentied men. While in that state, he received beating from these men. They even asked the TV host for money.
Chito did not give any more details about what happened because Vhong's lawyers are preparing a case. So badly beaten was the TV host-dancer that he will be unable to host "It's Showtime" and he will also be absent from some of his showbiz commitments for a time.
He is scheduled to undergo operation on Monday.
Chito said Vhong is already able to give a statement and to move as well. However, he has severe injuries because of the beating.
It is not clear yet what exactly happened last Wednesday, and Vhong also did not identify who the girl he was visiting and what happened to her while he was being beaten up.
According to some reports, Vhong harassed a 22-year-old and that was why he was attacked by the group. There is even one report saying that a blotter against Vhong was filed because of the harassment that happened.
Chito said Vhong will reveal the details in time. For now, he is recuperating in the hospital.
He had broken bones in his nose which will require surgery.
His "It's Showtime" co-hosts offered a prayer for him on Saturday's episode.
