On March 17, Channel A News aired an exclusive report in regards to the lawsuit between Polaris Entertainment and Clara with a recording of CEO Lee Kyu Tae allegedly threatening the celebrity.
In the recording, you can hear Lee Kyu Tae saying to Clara, "[Celebrity A] ultimately said that she wasn't going to work with me anymore and I stopped everything in one day. CJ, Loen, I stopped every airing, right? She was nothing after that. I'm talking about that. If I wanted to..."
The reporter then finished Lee Kyu Tae's sentence, claiming that he had said, "If I wanted to, I can easily stop the path of any celebrity." According to the report, Clara claimed that these were the words Lee Kyu Tae had said to Clara back in August 2014.
CEO Lee Kyu Tae was also heard saying, "What can you gain when I get mad? I can use the money that I could've used for your benefit to destroy you. You don't know, you don't know who I am. I can see everything that you're doing, your Kakao messages, even the messages you send after changing your phone."
Later that day, Polaris Entertainment addressed the report, confidently stating that the so-called evidence was not enough to turn the tables around, and told Star Today, "[The police] sent its opinion about prosecuting Clara and her father Lee Seung Kyu on the charges of joint-blackmailing to the prosecutor's office. Everything can be explained through [the outcome of the case]. We don't feel the need to respond to this." The agency added that they have enough evidence against Clara of her wrongdoings.
Meanwhile, it was previously reported that Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency sent its opinion about prosecuting Clara and her father and believed that Clara's father had blackmailed CEO Lee Kyu Tae with claims of sexual humiliation in order to terminate the contract.
