The GMA statement said the fallout  is a “very unfortunate incident” as Aljur is one of their home-grown talents.

They added that the network and the GMA Artist Center have  “accorded him (Aljur) every opportunity to personally assess all offers to reach a mutual agreement.”

The network added that they will answer the actor’s legal points in  court, now that they have received Aljur’s copy of complaint.

Here is GMA Network’s full statement emailed to philSTAR.com:

“GMA Network received yesterday the complaint filed by Aljur Abrenica for the rescission of his Management Contract and exclusive Network Agreement. Our lawyers will review this and answer accordingly in court.

“The network considers this incident very unfortunate because GMA has greatly invested on Aljur, who is one of its prime artists.

“GMA Artist Center has not been remiss in its duties as his manager practicing a consultative style of management with Aljur. With his best interest in mind, this practice had accorded him every opportunity to personally assess all offers to reach a mutual agreement.

“GMA Network has equally given him projects, some of which were lead roles in the Network's primetime programs.

“Aljur is a home-grown GMA talent who has discovered through the reality search, StarStruck, in 2007. Since then, he has been given numerous projects including Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin?, All My Life, The Last Prince, Machete, Coffee Prince, Prinsesa ng Buhay Ko, and Kambal Sirena.

“Likewise, GMA Network and GMA Artist Center have arranged major endorsements and corporate partnerships for Aljur.”
