After Deniece Cornejo, here comes another self-confessed rape victim of actor/host Vhong Navarro. Atty. Virgilio Batalla named the victim as Roxanne Cabañero y Acosta.
Roxanne Cabanero filed a rape complaint against Vhong Navarro on Wednesday at the Pasig City Prosecutor's Office. According to her lawyer, Roxanne was raped by Vhong in 2010 and decided to file a case now after learning that Deniece Cornejo has filed the same complaint against the comedian.
Roxanne Cabanero, the 24-year-old Venus Raj dead ringer is a graduate from a University in Cebu and has joined several pageants representing Cebu and her hometown Davao. She joined Miss Resorts World 2010 and Miss Bikini Philippines. Her supposed biggest pageant was Bb. Pilipinas 2011 if not for a controversy that led to her disqualification.
According to reports, Roxanne was disqualified from the roster of Bb. Pilipinas official candidates due to alleged nude photos which surfaced online. Roxanne has since denied that she was the girl in the controversial photo and even sought the help of NBI to identify the blogger who uploaded the photo.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Cabanero said that she she was asked by a BPCI lawyer to just drop from the competition, which she found unfair as she was the victim of the incident.
Roxanne Cabanero is on the spotlight once again after filing a rape case against Vhong Navarro. According to her lawyer, Cabanero approached him five days after the Vhong Navarro-Deniece Cornejo controversy erupted (read more here).
