The main reasons that have been brought up by insiders include two issues. One is about a potential marriage with Tyler Kwon, as we mentioned earlier, and the other pertains to the launch of her own fashion line 'Blanc'. New reports indicate that the two issues may actually be connected as Tyler Kwon is being mentioned as one of the investors in Jessica's new line.
'Dispatch' also recently released a report to say they spotted Jessica and Tyler Kwon arriving at the airport from New York around the same time on the 29th KST. Jessica was seen coming out from the gates followed by Tyler Kwon about 5 minutes later, further fueling rumors about their relationship and possible marriage that surfaced again recently, which was never addressed by SM Entertainment. One source told the media outlet, "[Jessica] is preparing for her business, and looking into schools... She is thinking of marriage, but that's not being thought out in detail yet."
Our contacts in the industry as well as other media outlets are also mentioning that the biggest reason, however, for Jessica's alleged conflict with the agency and possibly the group is because of the launching of her fashion line.
The other 8 members and their parents supposedly had issues with Jessica's new fashion line because it seemed that she wanted to devote her career and time to becoming a designer, which would mean less or no time for Girls' Generation.
Jessica supposedly had worked out the issue of royalties from her line with SM, but the members had asked Jessica to choose between her new business and Girls' Generation. Insiders are saying the parents of the members also voiced their thoughts and the complaint was lodged to SM. The complaint seems to be that although there is no problem with Jessica living as a Girls' Generation member while designing, there is a problem if Jessica is living as a designer but using Girls' Generation's brand name.
Insiders have also mentioned that SM had pleaded with Jessica to hold out until the Tokyo Dome concert, and was originally going to tell the press and fans that she was absent at today's China fan meeting because of health reasons. However, Jessica had taken to Weibo this morning to post her thoughts.
What do you make of the situation so far?
