Atty. Alma Mallonga, Vhong Navarro's lawyer confirmed that the comedian knew Roxanne Cabañero y Acosta in an interview with Aquino and Abunda Tonight Friday night. Roxanne Cabañero is the girl who filed a rape case against Vhong at the height of the mauling controversy. The rape allegedly happened in 2010.
"Vhong says he knows this girl but he can categorically say na ang pinaparatang niya (Cabañero) ngayon has no basis," said Atty. Mallonga.
In another interview with dzMM, Atty. Mallonga, who will most likely handle this new rape case against Vhong, said that the comedian did not detailed how they are acquainted.
In her sworn affidavit, Roxanne said that she first met Vhong on ABS-CBN's It's Showtime when they guested as contestants of Slimmer's World Miss Bikini Philippines on April 24, 2010. She also said that Vhong got her number through a staff and that night, she was raped (read more here).
