The Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters have now aired their sentiments regarding their disgruntled forward Calvin Abueva.
In an official statement posted in their social media accounts Tuesday afternoon, the team expressed sadness with the allegations of domestic violence and neglect thrown to the eight-year pro cager by his wife, Sam.
Days ago, Sam went live on Instagram to air her allegations by using his husband’s official account @calvinabuevaofficial. Calvin fired back through a new account @calvinabuevathebeast, going live as well. But the account has been erased.
“The Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters are deeply saddened by the recent allegations about the behavior of suspended player Calvin Abueva,” the statement read.
“Claims of domestic violence and neglect have no place in our team and are seriously considered and mulled over by the company.”
Accusations of domestic violence are the latest issue to hit Abueva, who’s suspended indefinitely by the PBA after doing obscene gestures to Blackwater rookie Ray Parks’ girlfriend and a clothesline to TNT’s Terrence Jones.
The Fuel Masters said they will decide on Abueva’s fate with the team “once a full and appropriate legal procedure is conducted.” But for the meantime, the team said they will still keep reaching out to assist Abueva and his family.
This, even if Abueva has been unresponsive to them.
“We have consistently provided moral support to Calvin throughout these troubling times. We have been continually reaching out to the distressed cager despite his unresponsiveness and absence from the team even prior to these untoward recent incidents,” the statement read.
“More importantly, we will continue to reach out to assist the Abueva family in this difficult time.”
