Girls' Generation's Tiffany releases official statement and apology for father's recent fraud controversy

Girls' Generation's Tiffany released an official statement and apology for her father's recent fraud controversy.

On December 5, the Girls' Generation member explained she hasn't been in contact with her father in 7 years, and she'd taken responsibility for his debt on multiple occasions in the past. Tiffany's agency Transparent Artist released the following statement on her behalf:

"Hello, this is Tiffany. Yesterday, I read the post written by the person who was hurt by my father in the past through the news. I felt terrible and apologetic, so I decided to deliver a statement to everyone.

Actually, I experienced a difficult childhood due to my father's various problems. Even after my debut, I was threatened by people who knew my father for his various debts, which I was not aware of. Moreover, I was pressured by my father himself into paying off his debt.

Because I thought it had to do with family matters, I took the financial responsibility multiple times. Therefore, I was always afraid that I would cause harm to my dear members and the people around me. Because I could no longer handle the issues, I broke ties with my father, and we decided to live our own lives. It has been 7 years since I've been in contact with him.

It was not an easy decision to talk about my family matters through such unpleasant news but I decided to write due to my apologetic mind towards those who were harmed by my father and situations related to me. Once again, I sincerely apologize for this controversy."

I broke ties with my mom over 12 years ago, not many people can wrap their heads around why kids do this. Just because they are our parents does not mean we are forced to like them. Her dad sounds like a shady person and it was the right choice to cut off contact if he was not about to change. But estranged father or not people should not be going after kids for sht their parents did.
