Lee and another co-accused Simeon "Zimmer" Raz were arrested in Oras, Eastern Samar at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, and arrived in Manila in handcuffs at 7:43 a.m. the following day.The two were brought to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) headquarters in Manila, where they were processed and are currently detained.

When Lee was asked again how is Zimmer related to him, Lee jokingly said "All around. Kusinero, trainer, bodyguard, driver."

Lee also denied he still has communication with other co-accused in the case.

Xian Lim recalls past before showbiz

Xian Lim recalls past before showbiz Instagram

"I just had to make a quick stop. A whole lot of experience in this Highschool. It's crazy how 9 years ago I was in the same spot craming so many things in my head just to get through graduation."

"Also I remember back in 2003, when I was freshman I stood on the same spot not knowing anyone and how to fit in a huge crowd. White tees and jerseys were a bit famous back then and I wanted to be just like e40 and Gunit haha..."

"Just keep on working hard guys! Don't let people dictate you on what you can or cannot do. We aint got time for haters, bullies and mean crowds. Let them stay in the gutter while you do your thing and aim for the stars :-) "

"Special thanks to everyone I knew and became friends with me during my highschool days. Now that's real shizz nittttts..."
