Netizens noticed Vhong Navarro appears to have lost a significant amount of weight
VHONG NAVARRO – Some netizens noticed that the actor-host had lost weight based on his latest photos amid his transfer to Taguig City Jail.
The r*pe case filed by model Deniece Cornejo has led to the transfer of actor-TV host Vhong Navarro to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology detention facility in Taguig. The comedian, whose real name is Ferdinand Navarro, was ordered by Branch 69 of the Taguig Regional Trial Court to be moved from a National Bureau of Investigation detention cell to the Male Dormitory of the BJMP while he waits for the outcome of the court’s decision on his bail petition.
The NBI first received the transfer order on November 14 but the transfer didn’t go into effect until this past Monday. The handcuffed actor was pictured by the NBI wearing a maroon hoodie sweater over an orange detainee shirt from the agency. He had a dark mask over his face and a gray baseball cap on.
Netizens were quick to notice the change in the appearance of the actor-television host. Some claimed that he appears to have lost a significant amount of weight.
Meanwhile, Navarro would have to endure a 15-day quarantine in an isolation cell before being permitted to join other persons deprived of liberty (PDLs), a fancy term the Department of Justice (DOJ) coined for prisoners awaiting conviction of their criminal offenses.
The “It’s Showtime” host was placed under the custody of the BJMP after Cornejo obtained clearance from the court on the grounds that the alleged r*pe occurred in Taguig City. Cornejo claimed in her complaint that Navarro had molested her in 2014 inside her Taguig condo.
