Vice Ganda is one of the most famous names in Philippine film and television. This multi – awarded television host, actor, singer, comedian, and all – around entertainer has been gracing the television screens of many Filipinos’ homes through the years in shows such as “It’s Showtime!” and in movies such as “Praybeyt Benjamin,” “Beauty and the Bestie,” “Petrang Kabayo,” and “The Super Parental Guardians,” among many others.
But despite Vice Ganda’s huge success, the actor has been pretty quiet when it comes to his private life, especially about his love life.
Vice Ganda has been involved with a few personalities in the past years but nothing new has come up – up until a few months ago. All of Vice Ganda’s talked about relationships happen to be with basketball and PBA players and it seems like Vice Ganda is getting linked with another player again.
After repeatedly being seen with Alaska Aces player Calvin Abueva, Vice Ganda’s fans and followers began speculating about the relationship status of the two personalities. But before it can escalate to anything more, they immediately nipped the issue at the bud and immediately said that nothing was going on between them beyond friendship.
When asked about how close they were, Abueva was quicl to say that they were simply close friends.

“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,” Abueva said in a radio interview with “Fast Break” of DZMM Teleradyo.
“Actually ‘yung anak kong pangalawang bunso, inaanak niya… Kinuha namin siyang ninong nong time na ‘yun,” he added.
“Kasi noong… mga 2014, 5 years old na [yung anak ko] eh. Katropa naming yung ibang mga basketball player, edi kinuha naming siyang ninong. Kaya noong time na yun, nagkakilala na kami.” Abueva added after he was asked how their friendship began.
This was not the first time Abueva tried to clear the air about the rumors concerning his relationship status with Vice Ganda.
Last September 2018, when a video of the two of them bonding backstage with the other players of his team surfaced on social media, speculations about the two of them began again but the good friends made sure to stop it from getting any worse.
“Kaibigan ko ‘yun, nasa Alaska pa ako magkaibigan na kami. Tsaka ninong siya nung isang anak ko,” Abueva said in an interview.
“Nagkita kasi kami minsan, tapos sabi ko sa kanya, manood naman siya ng game namin,” Abueva explained.
Many of their friends and followers were also fast to defend Abueva and Vice Ganda. Some even shared their thoughts in the comments section of the posts talking about the issue.
