MANILA -- Actor Vhong Navarro got a hug from actress-singer Vina Morales, who was once in a relationship with businessman Cedric Lee.

Navarro, who accused Lee and his friends of mauling him last January, was promoting his upcoming movie "Da Possessed" on "ASAP" on Sunday.

"Mr. Vhong Navarro. Oh my God, payakap nga. This is the first time I saw Vhong again," Morales told Navarro.


Navarro has filed criminal charges against the group of Lee, who mauled him last January after model Deniece Cornejo claimed that the actor tried to rape her.

In February, Morales denied she was physically abused by her former partner, Lee.

In an interview in 2011, Morales said she and Lee had already broken up when she became pregnant with their only child. At the time, the actress said she continued having "good communication" with Lee, who she said visited their daughter "almost everyday."

In a "TV Patrol" report last year, Sr. Supt. Albert Ocon of the PNP-PSPG said Morales had accused Lee of physical abuse in 2012, which he said was the reason for the termination of his security detail.
