Sam Abueva, wife of suspended PBA player Calvin Abueva, broke her silence on Saturday night to expose how her husband badly treats her and their children.
The mother of four, through Calvin’s Instagram account @calvinabuevaofficial, shocked netizens with her revelations, posting screenshots of CCTV footage of Calvin’s alleged abuse and answering questions from their followers about the issue.
After a series of Instagram stories, Sam went live and, not holding back, shared their traumatic experience with the Kapampangan cager.
“Last year, 2018, January tumakas kami ng mga anak ko sa kanya kasi sobra na yung threat na ginagawa niya sa 'kin, sasaksakin na niya ako, babarilin na niya ako,” she said.
“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,” she added.
Sam bared that early this month, she had a major fight with Calvin, which resulted in her getting rushed to the hospital.
“July 10 nag-spotting ako kasi lasing siya, dinaganan niya ang tiyan ko, naospital ako noon. July 8 pinipilit niya akong galawin, dinudugo ako sabi ko hindi pwede kasi makukunan ako ayaw kong mawalan ng anak,” she said.
Sam clarified that although she has kept things to herself for the longest time, she could no longer hold it in especially with their children getting involved.
“Kaya lang naman ako nagkaganito dahil yung anak na nakakita ng lahat ng ginagawa niyan, ito yung madaling araw gumising,” she said. “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.”
On the infidelity issue, Sam challenged Calvin to prove his claim of her having an affair with another man before saying that it was him who has been hiding from two women who he allegedly got pregnant.
“Sinabi mo last year na nanlalaki ako, Calvin? Sige nga, patunayan mo. Patunayan mo lahat yan,” she said.
“Dalawa yung nabuntis mong babae, Calvin. Nasaan? Pinanagutan mo? Hindi, di ba? Hinahabol ka. Tinataguan mo. Tinanggap kita December, nagmamakaawa ka, sabi mo magbabago ka na, tinanggap kita pero ano'ng ginawa mo, gusto mo pa rin akong sirain,” she added.
Sam ended her 14-minute live video with a strong message to Calvin.
“Calvin, magtutuos tayo, wag kang sinungaling. Magpakatotoo ka, yun lang ang masasabi ko sa 'yo,” she said.
Sam and Calvin met in 2010 when the both of them were college students at San Sebastian.
Over the last two months, Calvin has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. He is currently suspended indefinitely and fined for P70,000 for two separate incidents.
He was slapped with a P50,000 penalty for the clothesline against TNT import Terrence Jones, and he was also been given a P20,000 fine for a verbal altercation and obscene gestures against a fan, Blackwater rookie Bobby Ray Parks Jr.’s girlfriend Maika Rivera.
As if those were not enough, Abueva was again in the news for playing in a barangay league on July 21.
On Friday, Games and Amusement Board (GAB) chairman Baham Mitra threatened to revoke Abueva's license permanently over the two incidents.
