Aljur Abrenica owes veteran broadcaster P1.3M, still unpaid for years
Radio-TV personality and now president of 8 Trimedia Broadcasting Network Kaye Dacer aired her sentiments about Kapuso actor Aljur Abrenica, as she revealed he still owes her P1.3 million.
The supposed longtime debt concerns a house, reportedly located at Scout Fuentebella in Quezon City, formerly owned by Dacer which she sold to Abrenica.
In an unexpected revelation at a press conference for her presidency at 8 Trimedia, the issue was suddenly brought up during discussions, which led the broadcaster to talk about it and explain.
According to the “Action Lady,” she initially valued the house at P32 million but eventually compromised with Abrenica for 19 million. But since Abrenica’s acquisition of the house, the actor has ceased communicating with her, leaving behind an outstanding balance of P1.3 million.
In her recent interview with entertainment columnist and talent manager Ogie Diaz on DZMM, she said that it is Abrenica’s negligence of the matter that disappointed her the most.
“Ang masakit lang do’n, hindi naman ‘yung pera, eh… ‘yung (What hurts is not the [issue about the] money itself, but [him ceasing from] communicating with me as if nothing happened, ‘di ba? Nanahimik ako, ang tagal kong nanahimik, eh (I kept quiet, I was quiet for so long),” Dacer revealed.
“Kasi para bang… ayoko namang umabot ako sa punto na para akong namamalimos sa halagang ganu’n lang when you know very well your responsibility, ‘di ba? ‘Wag naman sana akong dumating do’n sa punto na para akong mamamalimos,” she explained.
(It’s like, I don’t want to get to the point where it would appear like I am begging for such an amount, when you [Abrenica] know very well your responsibility, right? I hope this does not get to the point when I would look like I’m begging.)
She said she did not bother Abrenica or his family since then, because she was hoping for them to make the initiative to go to her. Recently, Dacer already sent a text message to Abrenica’s mom, but still to no avail.
She also clarified that she did not force her house to Abrenica, and that it was him [and his family] who liked the house and insisted on buying it.
“In the first place, hindi ko naman isinubo sa kanila ‘yung bahay ko. Kasi nu’ng nakita nila ‘yon, nagustuhan nila ‘yung bahay. So ‘yon lang, parang masakit lang,”
(In the first place, I did not force my house to them. They liked the house when they saw it. So that’s it, I just feel hurt.)
Dacer however declared that she does not plan to file charges against the actor. She only wants him to realize his responsibility and his negligence.
“Ang sa akin lang, I want him to realize that he still owes me. ‘Yon lang ang sa akin. Sana naman maisip niya na may responsibilidad pa siyang natakbuhan na napakatagal nang panahon,” she added.
(As for me, I [just] want him to realize he still owes me. That’s it. I hope he realizes he still has a responsibility which he ran away from, and has not been settled for so long.)
Abrenica has not yet spoken about the issue. He’s also showed inactivity on social media, as his last Twitter post as of this writing was on March 7.
His Instagram account all the more shows no recent activity, with his last post made over seven weeks ago, as of this writing.
Kaye Dacer has just resigned from ABS-CBN and from her radio program “Aksyon Ngayon” with Julius Babao to assume presidency of 8 Trimedia Broadcasting Network. JB
