GMA Network answers Sarah Lahbati's tweets about the Gozons

GMA Network replies to Sarah Lahbati's allegations based on her tweets last night, January 9, 2013.

Sarah mentioned "It has been three days since Ms Annette Gozon Abrogar uses GMA news to bombard me and make my image look bad." GMA Network categorically denies this. GMA News has fairly aired both Sarah's tweets and the Network's statements thus she cannot accuse anyone of using the Network's News Department to make her image look bad.

GMA Network's reply to Sarah Lahbati's latest tweets

  1. GMA maintains its position that Sarah Lahbati violated her contract with the network.
  2. The walk-out incident from a taping of Sarah Lahbati is still being investigated. We welcome Sarah's denial that she walked out from that taping and her denial will expedite the action(s) we will take depending on the result of our investigation because there will no longer be any need to ask her to explain.
  3. We are not going to comment at this time on the other statements of Sarah Lahbati that has no relevance to the violation of her contract with GMA.

GMA Network's Official Statement on Sarah Lahbati:

"Last December, Sarah Lahbati unilaterally decided to take a leave of absence of one (1) month from GMA Network, because she said she wanted to de-stress and unwind. Because her reasons were vague, they were not accepted by management. While we understand that work in our industry can be stressful (as in any business), we believe that this is not only unavoidable in most cases, but also a part of what one does as a professional and/or performing artist.
