According to an insider, recording company HIM International had agreed to release Wu Chun as the star had asked for "half of Fahrenheit's earnings, while the remaining half was to be divided amongst the other three members".
In response to this, the heartthrob said that it was HIM who tried to tempt him with the offer when they approached him to discuss the renewal of his contract.
Wu Chun mentioned that he struggled with the offer for quite awhile before turning it down.
HIM has refused to comment on the claims, saying that it was inconvenient to discuss the terms of the contract.
With Wu Chun gone, it was rumoured that the group's fan club is also facing some internal conflict, with some members hoping for the remaining members to split.
Last Saturday, after an event in Wuxi, an angry fan was seen hurling a lighter, and splashing water at Aaron, while shouting for him to "leave Fahrenheit".
Aaron was reportedly enraged by the fan's action and was on the verge of beating up the fan before he was stopped by the security guard.
In response to the incident, HIM expressed, "It did happen, but it could be due to the recent change in the group which caused an emotional stress in the fan. We believe that there weren't any ill intentions."
