Based on the statements, Jessica is still under SM and her contract has not been voided so they will be managing her in her future endeavors for at least 3 more years.
I fully support idols wanting to pursue their interests and personal life, but apparently most fans cannot be pleased. Another reason — aside from fashion and personal reasons — that I think could have contributed to why Jessica wanted out, is because of her treatment in SNSD. When they first debuted, until about , Jessica was the second vocalist after Taeyeon.
