Pledis Entertainment took to PRISTIN's official fan cafe on October 12 to relay some unfortunate news.
PRISTIN's member Kyla will be taking a break from her promotions after receiving advice from a doctor to rest, as her health is deteriorating. The girl group will be carrying on promotions as a 9-member group for the time being, while Kyla receives treatment in her home country of the U.S.A.
Below is Pledis's official statement:
"We have come to deliver unfortunate news to fans who love PRISTIN. After returning home to her home in the U.S. to rest during Chuseok and receiving a doctor's check up, Kyla received advice to rest. Kyla wanted to continue her promotions while receiving treatment, and the company also hoped Kyla could go on promoting, but the doctor revealed that it would be difficult for Kyla to go on with her promotions in her current state of health and put recovery as her utmost priority. As a result, we have decided that it would be best for Kyla to focus on recovery at her home in the U.S, despite our regrets.
We apologize to fans who love PRISTIN and Kyla for bringing sudden news. However, we concluded that the most important thing is Kyla's health, and made this decision while considering the long run. Kyla will rejoin PRISTIN once her health returns. Again, we ask fans to be understanding.
We hope for Kyla's fast recovery and her return to her healthy image. Thank you."
Get well soon, Kyla.
