MANILA -- Television host and actor Vhong Navarro was the most popular celebrity on Google in the country in 2014, the search giant revealed on Tuesday.

The 37-year-old was hounded by controversy this past year after he was beaten up in a condominium unit in Taguig City back in January.

He also made headlines with his legal battle with model Deniece Cornejo, who accused Navarro of rape, and businessman Cedric Lee, whom the actor sued for serious illegal detention.

Following Navarro on the list of the country's most searched male celebrities was the late American comedian Robin Williams.

Ranking third was newscaster Paolo Bediones, who was embroiled in controversy after a leaked sex video surfaced online, while teen star James Reid placed fourth.

The "Diary ng Panget" star made headlines for several reasons. He starred in two films this year, and was reportedly rushed to a hospital following a fashion show mishap back in September.

Topping the most popularly searched female celebrity list of 2014 was Jennifer Lawrence. The Oscar-winning actress featured in two Hollywood blockbuster hits, was awarded a Golden Globe, and had nude photos stolen and posted online following an iCloud hack.

Teen actress and Reid's co-star Nadine Lustre was second on the list. Renee Zellweger, who was the talk of the Internet back in October following her new appearance, and Kristel Moreno and her see-through dress was third and fourth, respectively.

"The Voice Kids" runner-up Darren Espanto was second on the list of the country's most popular newsmakers, which was topped by Cedric Lee.

Indiana Pacers' Paul George, who suffered an horrific foot injury before the start of the new NBA season was fourth behind Deniece Cornejo.
