JYP Entertainment respond to cleared defamation charge against alleged school bullying victim of ITZY’s Lia

AKP STAFF


Following the clearance of defamation charges against alleged school bullying victim of ITZY’s Lia, ITZY’s agency JYP Entertainment has responded to media enquiries on it.

JYP Entertainment told Newsen on June 13:

We have heard about the results through the news and are trying to figure out the progress. 

However, it is difficult to accept the results as they are. 

We will decide how to respond when the process is clearer.

Alleged school bullying victim of ITZY’s Lia previously accused Lia of bullying her friend and subsequently her through borrowing money without returning and verbal abuse. To which JYP Entertainment released a statement denying it, and took legal action against the alleged victim, hereafter mentioned as A. 

However, after investigations on A, the police concluded that it will be difficult to charge A for defamation as there are no clear evidence to prove A falsely wrote the article, or A wrote it with the purpose of slander.

Being true or not, it's not known. A winning the lawsuit doesn't mean they were telling the truth rather than the police concluded there wasn't enough evidence that A was defaming Lia or that they wrote the article trying to defame them. To early to conclude anything. If JYP or Lia has evidence...time to look for it.
