Basketball player Calvin Abueva clarified that he is just close friends with Vice Ganda amid rumors romantically linking them together.
In an interview with DZMM's Fast Break, Calvin said, "Close friend lang. Close lang, close. Kasi iba-iba 'yung lumalabas na kontrobersyal na kung ano, 'yung mga haka-haka nila, pero actually sa amin sweet friends kami," he stated.
He added that one of his children is actually the godson of Vice. "Actually 'yung anak kong pangalawang bunso, inaanak niya." He shared that he first met Vice in 2014 through his friends in the basketball team. "Kinuha namin siyang ninong nong time na 'yun," he relayed.
Rumors romantically linking them together was further fueled recently after Vice greeted Calvin and his team on It's Showtime. This was after Vice was teased by his co-hosts on the show. Ryan Bang, who calls Vice as his "mommy," also quipped that he calls Calvin his "daddy."
