Team Wang Officially Addresses The Dating Rumors Regarding GOT7’s Jackson & (G)I-DLE’s Yuqi!
GOT7's Jackson and (G)I-DLE's Yuqi were both targeted with dating allegations, to the surprise of netizens and K-pop fans. This started when Chinese paparazzi caught Yuqi going in and out of Jackson's apartment complex, supposedly in a car driven by a driver employed by the GOT7 member.
Following the dating rumors, GOT7 Jackson Wang's studio has dropped an official statement. The studio expressed that it is normal for friends to visit each other's houses, going on to deny the dating allegations brought upon by paparazzi.
The full announcement of GOT7 Jackson Wang's studio is as follows:
"Recently, independent media account 'Photographer Liu Da Chui' took advantage of the company's artist Mr. Wang Jia Er's influential power, released video clips that were pieced together, and purposely twisted the truth. He even used wording such as 'spent the night,' 'rose,' 'two beautiful ladies,' 'drove her back to Wang Jia Er's home,' and 'you guys understand, I don't need to say more' to mislead the public and create misunderstanding towards Mr. Wang Jia Er. This was done to attract attention for a hidden agenda.
It's common and normal for friends to gather at Wang Jia Er's home. The actions of the said independent media account not only invaded the artist's privacy but also caused damage to Mr. Wang Jia Er's reputation. With regards to this situation, the company has already filed a police report in order to protect Mr. Wang Jia Er's rights through public safety agencies and to promote a clean and safe online environment. We believe the law is serious and just, and will not allow criminals to think they can get away with violations. We sincerely thank everyone once again for the constant attention and love for Mr. Wang Ji Er.
The company and Mr. Wang Jia Er will continue to focus on his work and will not disappoint anyone who loves and supports Wang Jia Er! We welcome everyone's supervision and guidance!"
Notably, the label of (G)I-DLE and Yuqi, CUBE Entertainment, has not yet released a statement regarding the dating rumors.
