Aljur Abrenica Relates That His Showbiz Earnings Grew Because Of His DadContrary to reports that his dad has unnecessarily spent all his showbiz earnings, Aljur Abrenica has revealed that his father helped him grow his money exponentially. The Kapuso actor disclosed that since he entered show business as a minor, it was his dad who took care of all his finances.
According to Aljur, he was surprised and impressed that when he turned 21 years old, his dad turned over all of the money that he (Aljur) has earned so far from being a movie and TV star. Aljur said he could not believe that he has amassed that huge sum of money.
He added that his dad’s entrepreneurial skills helped make his money grow. Aljur’s dad is a business man, who has invested Aljur’s money in several bars and a resort in Batangas. Showbiz insiders also know his dad because he occasionally performs at small gigs around the metro.
Working for a home
Aljur revealed that he is now focusing on the continuous construction and renovation of a house he has bought for him and his family. That property is situated within the Scout area in Quezon City, which is known for real estate with astronomical price tags.
The Abrenica family has already moved in to that house even if it is yet to be finally completed. Aljur recalled that he did not spend all his savings in this house since his dad decided to take bank financing to fund half of the real estate purchase.
Owning Jollibee franchise
Aljur also disclosed a lifetime dream that has something to do with business. According to him, it has always been his dream to own a franchise of popular fastfood chain Jollibee. That is why he has always been looking forward to make an endorsement for the company so he could finally have his own Jollibee franchise.
If this dream would come true, Aljur even promised that he would give most showbiz reporters free meals at the store for a year. But right now, there is no word from Jollibee yet if the company has any plan of getting Aljur’s services as a celebrity endorser.
Aljur is currently busy taping for his latest GMA-7 soap ‘Prinsesa ng Buhay Ko,’ which would pair him once again with Kris Bernal. The TV series would start airing on September 23, Monday, from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p. m.
He is confident that he has already improved his acting. In almost all his past projects, Aljur had been seriously criticized for lacking the depth and knack as an actor. In fact, his ‘ham acting’ was blamed for the earlier than normal demise of his first solo-starrer project in GMA-7, ‘Machete.’
Aljur is also vocal about his relationship with girlfriend Kylie Padilla. According to reports, Kylie’s dad Robin Padilla has already accepted the fact that Aljur is his daughter’s boyfriend. But Robin, as expected, has a strong directive to Aljur not to make Kylie upset during the span of their relationship.
