After kicking Jessica
out of Girls' Generation
, SM Entertainment
has decided to terminate its contract with the idol, officially letting her go from the company.
The termination occurred on August 6. SM Entertainment announced the termination through a statement.
"After much discussion with Jessica, we have decided it best for both party’s future developments to go each other’s way. Please cheer for Jessica who is going to star on a new path
," the company said.
Jessica was forced out of Girls Generation
at the end of September 2014. The decision then seemed to be one sided. However, the contract termination seems to have been a mutual decision between the two parties.
Prior to the controversial decision to kick Jessica out of Girls' Generation, all of the group's member had renewed their contracts
with SM Entertainment until 2016.
After SM Entertainment announced the contract termination, Jessica released her own statement.
