Comedian and It’s Showtime host Vhong Navarro was almost unrecognizable after he was mauled inside a posh condominium in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City Wednesday.

According to his manager Chito Roño, Navarro will take a break from showbiz to recover from the battering he received from a group of unidentified men. He is scheduled to undergo surgery next week.

Chito Roño said in an email that it will take time before the TV host recovers.

Several pictures of Navarro after the brutal attack were sent to ABS-CBN. The exclusive photos show Navarro’s badly bruised and swollen face.

Roño related that his ward was a victim of extortion, but was not able to give money to his six attackers.

The comedian continues to receive threats via text messages, said the funnyman’s manager. He added Navarro cannot give details regarding what really happened because he’s still unable to talk due to the injuries he suffered.

Meanwhile, the actor’s friends and co-workers in show business showered him with prayers.

After the news of Navarro’s condition broke out, his It’ Showtime co-host Vice Ganda led #PrayForVhongNavarro hashtag.

The usually cocky Vice Ganda ran out of words to describe Navarro’s sad state. He only managed to say that his friend’s ordeal was “nakakaiyak,” “nakakapanginig,” and “nakakapanghina (depressing, infuriating and grueling).
