BLACKPINK star Lisa has been tricked by a former K-pop group manager who stole around £ 650,000 from the singer, has been confirmed.
It was previously reported that singer Sour Candy had been a victim of fraud by the manager, simply referred to as ‘A’, who had worked with the band since their debut four years ago.
Market News first reported that ‘A’ managers told Lisa that they would consider buying real estate on her behalf, prompting her to transfer about 1 billion South Korean won.
However, Lisa lost money after the manager risked it.
Confirming the report, BLACKPINK agency, YG Entertainment issued a statement saying: ‘After studying this issue, we confirmed that Lisa was a victim of fraud by the former manager” A. “
‘According to Lisa’s desire to resolve this peacefully, because the former manager is someone whom Lisa trusted, Manager” A “has reimbursed a portion of the amount and has left the company after agreeing to the replacement plan for the remaining amount.”
YG Entertainment continues: ‘We bow our heads and apologize for making the fans’ concerns who love our artists.
‘We are ashamed of the mistakes” A “, and we feel responsible for management and supervision. We are taking precautionary measures so that this does not happen again. ‘
It happened after a source claimed BLACKPINK and their team was worried about how the incident would impact the band’s global brand.
“Because Lisa is a foreign member and has been in Korea alone since she was young, she is very vulnerable to these things,” said the insider.
‘It is unfortunate that these things occur in the industry. This is a serious situation that can damage the image of domestic management. ‘
Deception somewhat reduces BLACKPINK’s comeback because they have just released it new single, Sour Candy, which appeared on Lady Gaga’s new album Chromatica.
It was recently confirmed that singer Ddu-Du Ddu-du is set to finally released their debut album in September.
YG Entertainment revealed exactly what fans expect from their return, which will be a three-part comeback.
