Aspiring beauty queen Roxanne Cabañero y Acosta challenged comedian Vhong Navarro to prove where he was on the night she was allegedly rape before she respond to new developments on the case.
There are reports that Vhong Navarro was a guest performer on Vice Ganda's concert held April 24, 2010 at the Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park in Cavite. The said concert titled "May Nag Txt, May Show Ako" happened the same date Roxanne Cabañero claimed she was raped by Vhong based on her sworn affidavit.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Roxanne said, "Prove it to me. I-prove niya muna kung nasaan siya noong araw na 'yon. At babalikan ko, sasagutin ko ang tinatanong niya."
On social media, netizens expressed their doubts about the alleged rape incident which happened in Pasig. They based their judgment on several evidences proving that Vhong was present in the said concert.
A press release from Island Cove’s website dated April 6, 2010 and a poster showed that the concert was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. A photo sent to ABS-CBN News by Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park on Friday has confirmed that the concert of Vice Ganda with Vhong Navarro as guest indeed took place on the specified date.
Meanwhile, Kean Cipriano, who was also a guest performer on the said concert, posted a tweet 2:20 am of April 25, 2010 confirming that the concert ended past midnight.
A YouTube video uploaded by user wharzeek also showed Vhong Navarro staying until the end of the show. There's also a YouTube video showing host Vhong Navarro in the April 24, 2010 episode of It's Showtime plugging the said Island Cove concert.
Vhong Navarro is yet to speak up about this new evidence. However, his lawyer Atty. Alma Mallonga confirmed that Vhong knows Roxanne but the comedian did not specify how they got acquainted. She also said that no rape happened.
