Angel Locsin's manager, Becky Aguila, confirmed that the actress will immediately sign a contract with ABS-CBN on her arrival in Manila from London on Friday, August 10.
"As soon as Angel comes back [we will sign the contract]. Wala pa kaming concrete, basta nandun lang 'yung assurance namin sa kanila [ABS-CBN], verbally. They have our word na we're going to sign. So as soon as Angel comes back pipirma na kami," Aguila said in a presscon sponsored by ABS-CBN last Friday, August 3.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer also reported today, August 5,that Becky Aguila had confided to reporter Bayani San Diego Jr. Angel's official transfer to the Kapamilya network by signing her contract on August 10. Becky called the Inquirer when the news first came out in public that Angel was indeed transferring.
"I had a heart to heart talk with Angel and her dad," Becky revealed. "In time, I hope they would understand our decision," she continued pertaining to GMA-7's disappointment with their decision.
Angel's father, on the other hand, Angel Colmenares, defended his daughter by saying that she fulfilled her job with GMA through hard work and that both parties mutually benefited during the partnership.
Mr. Colmenares also said that his daughter assured him that she was "all right" during their last phone conversation.
He also told Angel "not to mind the intrigues because what is important is the truth. Should other people feel aggrieved or slighted by your decision, you shouldn't worry because your relationship with GMA-7 had been mutually beneficial . . . Suffice it to say, our decision was based on a sense of fairness."
