In the world of K-Pop, Ailee is one of the biggest names. She’s not only extremely talented musically, she’s also pleasing to the eye. Earlier today, she had to deal with a scandal after a series of nude shots hit the internet. A statement from her camp admitted she is indeed the subject.
Look below for pictures of Ailee, many of which show her with little or no clothing. As you will see, her body is absolutely amazing.
Although she was born in the United States, she went to South Korea and became a star. As for this controversy, her people are blaming her ex-boyfriend Daniel Lee, a man who now works at the media outlet that leaked the uncensored story.
Ailee’s management agency YMC Entertainment released a statement explaining that the nude photos were camera test shots that were taken while Ailee was in the United States after she received an offer to become a lingerie model.
However, the agency that had requested the nude shots was later discovered to be a fraudulent operation targeting female college students. Nevertheless, due to the complexity of the operation’s internet-based activity, the police were unable to make any arrests with regard to the situation.
Following this event, Ailee went to see her then-boyfriend (who YMC identifies as having worked for Allkpop at the time) to discuss the situation. Ailee was persuaded by her boyfriend to send the photos from the shoot to him. YMC continued by saying that they would seek legal action against the person who circulated the photos.
Several hours later, 6Theory Media (Allkpop’s parent company) posted a response letter of their own clarifying their methods of acquiring of the photos as well as the alleged involvement of 6Theory vice president Daniel Lee in the scandal. 6Theory claims that a Canadian tipster emailed 6Theory in June offering to sell nude photos of Ailee.
The tipster explained over a phone conversation with 6Theory that s/he “didn’t have access to Sports Seoul or Dispatch but would be willing to contact them if [Allkpop] didn’t break the story.” Claiming to be serving as a middleman for the original owner of the photos, the tipster offered $3500 USD for the full set of photos.
Allkpop initially replied that they were not interested, and the tipster told them that s/he would be contacting another media agency. Following this exchange, Allkpop claims to have contacted YMC Entertainment informing of the information they had received from this tipster, and told YMC that they would be willing to disclose his/her contact information if YMC were to pursue legal action. However, Allkpop reports that YMC disregarded the matter.
Nevertheless, Allkpop informed YMC that they would not post anything with regard to the photos unless the photos themselves were posted on the internet by a third party, and claimed that as their “job and duty as a news site,” they would then be obligated to write and post the story.
On November 10th, Allkpop received an email containing a link to the AnonIB forum post containing the nude photos of Ailee. Allkpop suspects that this email came from the same tipster who had contacted them in June, as the IP addresses of both emails traced back to the same ISP in Toronto. Following this, Allkpop made the decision to run the story, claiming that “it is [their] policy to report on the truth.”
In addition, Allkpop clarified that while 6Theory VP Daniel Lee did date Ailee in the past, he did not post the photos.
Since then, notable K-pop idols who have had friendly ties with Allkpop in the past such as G.NA, Jay Park, f(x)‘s Amber, miss A‘s Min, U-Kiss‘ Kevin and Super Junior‘s Siwon have unfollowed Allkpop’s Twitter account. Several artists under Muzo Entertainment (whose roster is primarily composed of Korean-Americans) also spoke out publicly against Allkpop’s handling of the matter.
