Phenomenal star Vice Ganda ended the speculations that he and Phoenix Fuels Masters star Calvin Abueva are in a relationship.

In an interview with Boy Abunda in his talk show on ABS-CBN, the Kapamilya comedian said, “Honestly, hindi ko jowa si Calvin. Hindi ko siya jowa kasi para sabihin mong jowa mo, iyong boyfriend kita tapos jowa mo ako –hindi kami ganoon eh.”

[Honestly, he is not my boyfriend. He’s not boyfriend, to say somebody’s my boyfriend —  that he’s my boyfriend and I’m his beloved one — we’re not that.

Ganda said the basketball player “makes me so happy. … Siya iyong isa sa mga pinakamalalapit kong nakakasama lately at isa siya sa mga nakakapagpasaya sa akin.”

[He’s the one whom I’ve been closed with lately, and one of those who makes me happy.]

The comedian said he values their friendship; adding that Abueva is not ashamed to be seen with him nor to post pictures with him — unlike many of his basketball player friends.

Ganda said Abueva holds a special place in his heart.

Asked about wishing their relationship to go deeper, his reply was: “No, I just want to feel what I feel right now. I just want to experience this now and I’m happy that I’m experiencing it now and I’m happy that he is making me experience this now,”

The speculations about the romantic relationship between the two began when Vice Ganda was recently seen with Abueva on their social media accounts, and the former watching the latter’s two games in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).
