Denise Millet Cornejo appeared on media interview together with Cedric Lee and his sister to confirm that she is going to push through the case filed against Vhong Navarro claiming also that she is the victim and not Vhong Navarro.
The 22-year-old ramp model said, “Isa lang po masasabi ko. If you want justice, I’ll give you the real justice. Mataas, napakataas ng paghanga ko sa mga lalaki na marunong rumespeto at ipagtanggol ang mga kababaihan. Kung meron mang inosente at biktima rito, wala nang iba kung hindi ako” the model told Jay Ruiz of ABS-CBN News.
“Vhong, hindi ko kailangang umiyak, ipakita na awang awa ako [sa sarili ko]. Sa lahat ng mga naniniwala at sumusuporta sa tao, lalo na sa ’yo – at wala akong kalaban-laban dahil alam kong marami kang napasayang tao – magaling kang artista, idolo kita. Pero sa mata ng prinsipyo, ang mali ay mananatiling mali at hinding hindi mananalo ang kasamaan sa kabutihan.”
According to Deniece Cornejo, she is supposed to wrap up and keep the incidence secret as she doesn’t want to be entangled in a controversial issue because she wanted to have a private life. However, she had no choice but to defend herself against the statement of Vhong Navarro that affects her reputation.
“Uulitin ko. As much as possible, gusto kong maging pribado buhay ko at ayokong lumaki nang ganito. Hindi ko ito pinili, pinili niya ito. Pero kung ang pangalan ko ang nakasalalay dito at reputasyon ko, ibang usapan na ‘yun,” she stressed.
“I’ve consulted my lawyer. Pero for now, medyo nato-trauma ako sa mga ganyang ugali at saka pangyayari,” added Deniece Cornejo.
