Showbiz Central caught sight of Vina Morales's businessman boyfriend, Cedric Lee, and his ex-wife, Judy Lee, during an event. Although the reportedly estranged couple were never seen socializing with each other, some reporters couldn't help but wonder on the true status of their relationship.

When Vina and Cedric's relationship became public knowledge, some people criticized the singer-actress for hooking up with a married guy to the point of calling her a "homewrecker." Cedric defended his celebrity girlfriend by saying that he was already separated with his wife when he pursued Vina.

"Vina is not a homewrecker. Vina will not knowingly, willingly, and purposely enter [a] relationship that would cause the breakup of a family. I've been separated for a quite a while before I met Vina. In fact, I have two other relationships before I met her. When I met Vina, I was technically single. I'm in the process of simplifying my life in that means that the issue of annulment has been raised. However, I will not elaborate on this matter out of respect for the privacy of all the parties involved, especially that of my kids," wrote Cedric in a statement he furnished to some entertainment reporters.

Cedric's actions delighted Vina prompting her to remark: "I'm very happy that he wrote that letter and nalaman na ng tao. Na-clear na nag lahat. Naawa na siguro siya sa akin t kailangan na niya ako ipagtanggol!"

Showbiz Central confronted Cedric's former wife and probed on her current relationship with the father of her two kids.

"I'm sorry I have to pass the question," she laughed enthusiastically before refusing to elaborate further.

"Eleven and 8 [years old]... two boys," she then said when asked for some details about their children.

Judy, however, revealed that she and Cedric along with the children are okay in spite of the unusual domestic setup as she makes sure that God is in the center of her life. Judy is very close with celebrity couple Jessica Rodriguez and David Bunevacz. In fact, it was reported that she is a business partner of the couple in one of their ventures.

Judy's refusal to answer the question directly regarding the state of her relationship with Cedric triggered some to think that perhaps it is still possible for the separated couple to reconcile.

Showbiz Central tried to contact Vina, who is currently in the States, to get her reaction but to no avail. - Philippine Entertainment Portal
