Vhong Navarro beaten up, threatened inside Fort condo

"It's Showtime" co-host Vhong Navarro is currently recovering after he was allegedly tied up and attacked by a group of men inside a condominium unit in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig on Wednesday, January 22, according to his manager.

In a statement given to ABS-CBN News on Friday, January 24, Navarro's manager, film director Chito Rono, said the comedian was invited by a female friend to visit her in her condominium unit.

Several men allegedly blindfolded Navarro and beat him up when he got in the premises of the condominium.

Rono said Navarro was also threatened and was a victim of extortion, adding they have yet to find out the reason behind the attack.

According to the film director, Navarro will temporarily not be seen on "It's Showtime," which airs weekdays and Saturdays, and on his other television projects, as he continues to recover.

Here is Rono's full statement:

"Si Vhong Navarro ay naimbitihan sa isang condominium unit sa Fort ng isang kaibigang babae. At sa di pa malamang kadahilanan, siya ay piniringan, pinagtulungang bugbugin, ginapos, tinakot, at hinihingan ng pera ng isang grupo ng kalalakihan noong January 22, Miyerkules.

"Si Vhong ay kasalukuyang nagpapagaling at mawawala ng pansamantala sa 'It's Showtime' at iba pa niyang proyekto."
