Source From YG Responds To Seungri’s Retirement Announcement
According to YTN, a source from YG revealed, “Seungri’s retirement announcement was not a decision made after consulting with YG, but a decision made on his own.” The source continued, “He was even more distressed because these incidents happened right before his enlistment.”
The source also said, “To be honest, no exact details have been revealed about Seungri during the past month and a half of police investigations. Seungri felt especially more guilty about causing harm to those around him.”
In a similar statement to the outlet Xportsnews, a source from YG also said, “Currently, there is no additional statement to be made from the company related to this. There has also been nothing decided yet in regards to anything such as a termination of his exclusive contract.”
Following recent controversies, from being accused of providing sexual escort services to foreign investors to sharing illegally taken footage and photos in a chatroom with his colleagues, BIGBANG’s Seungri announced his retirement through an Instagram post on March 11.
