MANILA, Philippines—Sam Abueva, wife of suspended PBA player Calvin Abueva, hurled grave accusations of abuse toward the Phoenix Fuel Masters forward Saturday night.

Sam used Calvin’s Instagram account and went live on the social media platform, sharing her husband’s alleged abuse including photos of alleged CCTV footage as evidence of her claims.


“Yung mga CCTV na yun ang pananakit ni Calvin na hindi niyo masisikmura kung paano niya ako saktan at kung paano niya saktan ang mga anak namin,” said Sam.

(Those CCTV footage show the abuse I’ve received from Calvin, I can’t fathom how he can hurt me and our children.)


Sam, who is 32 weeks pregnant, also said she needed to go to the hospital earlier this month for fear of having a miscarriage after claiming that Calvin put his weight on his stomach that caused her to have spotting.

“July 10 nag-spotting ako kasi lasing siya, dinaganan niya ang tiyan ko, na-ospital ako noon. July 8 pinipilit niya akong galawin, dinudugo ako sabi ko hindi pwede kasi makukunan ako ayaw kong mawalan ng anak,” said Sam.

(July 10 I had spotting, he came home drunk and he put his weight on me causing me to be rushed to the hospital. On July 8, he wanted to have sex with me but I told him I was bleeding and I may get a miscarriage. I don’t want to lose a child).

Sam added she tried to keep things to herself but she couldn’t anymore after one of their children saw what happened.

“Kaya lang naman ako nagkaganito dahil ‘yung anak na nakakita ng lahat ng ginagawa niyan, ito ‘yung madaling araw gumising,” said Sam. “Nanginginig siya gusto niyang yakapin ko siya ng mahigpit, pinapabuksan niya sa akin ‘yung ilaw kasi natatakot siya sa daddy niya, nandoon na kami sa punto na ganoon.”

(I’m only doing this because one of my children, who wakes up early in the morning, saw what happened,” said Sam. “He was shaking and I wanted to hug him. He wanted me to open the lights for him because he’s afraid of what his daddy might do).

Sam also accused Calvin of having extramarital affairs with several women that led to getting two women pregnant.


In a separate Instagram account, the former national team player fired back, denying his wife’s accusations.

“Lahat ng mga nandoon is kababalaghan at walang katotohanan,” said Calvin, who also claimed he and Sam are already separated.

(Everything in that account is a lie and bear no truth at all.)

Looking unbothered, Calvin even taunted his wife, whom he accused of going to Boracay without him.

“Masarap bang mag-Bora hangga’t wala ‘yung asawa mo?” posted Calvin, who is serving indefinite suspension from the league.

(Is it good to go to Boracay while your husband is away?)
