In a surprising turn of events, model-stylist Deniece Cornejo finally admitted to having an affair with businessman Cedric Lee.
However, upon learning of Deniece’s confession, Cedric Lee has been denying it.
On her second interview on Startalk with Heart Evangelista, Cornejo revealed that she had an illicit affair with Cedric Lee, her alleged co-conspirator in the mauling-extortion case of actor-comedian Vhong Navarro in Cornejo’s home on January 22.
Cornejo said however, that the moment she told Lee she was going public about their more-than-friendly relationship, Lee apparently did not agree and has been denying their relationship since.
Cornejo said she was disappointed and hurt, and thought that there was something there between her and Lee. She said that they even made plans after the alleged incident with Navarro, which included a nice long vacation overseas, so they can get away from all controversy.
The model-stylist revealed that she has gotten used to inviting Lee over to her condo unit and having ‘foods’ brought to her by Lee each time, that it was hard for her to move on, considering the sudden change and Lee’s complete reversal on their relationship.
At this point, Evangelista asked Cornejo to say what she wanted, and to let the people who were watching the show know what really went on between the two.
Instead, the model-stylist went on another on-camera tirade that sounded all too familiar:
“Kuya Cedric, ngayon panalo ka. Pasensya, simple lang ako, hindi ako makapangyarihan. Ngayon panalo ka, pero matakot ka sa ikalawang buhay. Ako, handa akong ibuwis ang buhay ko na nagsasabi ako ng katotohanan. Hindi ako natatakot. Hindi po ako natatakot. Mas ikakatakot ko ang ikalawang buhay sa impiyerno,” Deniece said while looking at the camera, again with her characteristic hand gestures.
Before the interview ended, Evangelista asked, “O totoo na ba ‘to?”, to which Cornejo replied, “Opo, yan po ang totoo, ate”.
Cornejo was in tears during her moment on camera, but was back to normal and smiling after just a few seconds.
Cedric Lee could not be reached for comment as of this writing.
