Calvin Abueva Scandal: Accused Of Domestic Violence
Off the court, Calvin has been involved in various controversies throughout his career, including a suspension from the PBA for his on-court behavior and domestic violence abuse from his ex-wife.

Sam filed a complaint against Abueva for physical abuse, citing incidents of physical assault and emotional distress during their relationship.
After the accusation, the basketball player was even suspended indefinitely by the PBA for his involvement in the case and his conduct on and off the court.
Furthermore, Calvin Abueva’s ex-wife alleged that for the past nine years, Abueva has been torturing her. Sam replied that she has been hurt by her spouse “since college days until now” when asked if he is loyal.

However, both of them chose to not respond to anything about the matter. Still, Phoenix team manager Paolo Bugia insisted that the club never interferes in any of its players’ private affairs.
“Professional clubs don’t really meddle in players’ home and personal matters.
Teams continue to expect their athletes to act professionally both on and off the court,” according to Phoenix team manager Paolo Bugia, who spoke to SportsCenter Philippines.
