Here was the Official Statement of GMA Network Related to Aljur Abrenica Complaint to Terminate His Contract.
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, practising a consultative style of management with Aljur. With his best interest in mind, this practice has 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 was 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. Reference: gmanetwork

According to a report on PEP.ph, Abrenica thought of this decision for a long time until he already decided. It was years according to him. Abrenica also said that through the guidance of the people around him, his family and God, he is willing to go to court.
