Deniece Cornejo's Grandmother Defends Her Against AccusationsFlorencia Cornejo, the paternal grandmother of model and stylist Deniece Cornejo, stands by her granddaughter's side in the rape complaint she filed against "It's Showtime" TV host Vhong Navarro.
She said they, as a family, can also feel the discrimination from the public. They also receive scrutiny and stares when they go out to dine in a mall or in any public place.
Florencia said their case was rape and yet, they are treated as if they are Janet Napoles, the alleged mastermind in the P10-billion pork barrel scam.
She defended Deniece against bashers and haters. Florencia said that her granddaughter grew up attending the Church and that she was raised well by her parents.
Deniece's father works on a cruise ship for 16 years while her mother is a plain housewife. Florencia said that Deniece would never commit perjury just so she will be more well-known in showbiz.
Her statement that Deniece's mother is a plain housewife contradicts Deniece's earlier statement that her parents are both working abroad as OFWs.
In fact, Florencia said Deniece was offered a project with Kapuso primetime king Dingdong Dantes, but she did not accept it because it will require her to have a kissing scene. In the past, Deniece has posted a photo of her, Dingdong, Cedric Lee and Randy Ortiz on Instagram.
Cedric is the Chinese businessman Vhong is accusing of masterminding the attack against him inside Deniece's condo unit in The Fort.
Florencia noted that Deniece is "very conservative," and that although she's seen in commercials, she never smokes nor drinks. "Kasi laking simbahan ‘yang batang ‘yan, e."
She was actually surprised when she saw the CCTV footage wherein it looked like Cedric was kissing Deniece on the neck. Her granddaughter, however, explained what happened that time.
Cedric was seen kissing Deniece inside the elevator hours after they dragged Vhong to a police station and filed a blotter report against him.
Florencia does not believe Deniece can have a relationship with Cedric, especially since he's a married man.
She's happy that Roxanne Cabanero, a former beauty queen, also came out to speak against Vhong's rape of her. She said it only shows Deniece is telling the truth.
"God is so good. Talagang ‘pag meron kang masamang ginawa, lalabas at lalabas."
As for Vhong, Florencia asked the comedian-TV host to repent for his sins and to tell the truth, so that they can all live in peace.
