WayV's Lucas apologizes after gaslighting and cheating allegations & SME announces he's suspending promotions

AKP STAFF

WayV's Lucas has apologized after his recent gaslighting and cheating allegations, and SM Entertainment has announced he's suspending all promotions.

After Lucas' alleged ex-girlfriend claimed the idol member gas lit her and leeched money off of her, 2 more netizens came forward to accuse him of similar behavior. On August 25, the accuser added further claims, saying the NCT unit member was spam calling her. Lucas has now posted an apology on Instagram as follows:


"This is Lucas.

I sincerely apologize to those hurt by my wrongdoings. If given the opportunity, I would like to apologize personally.

I also sincerely apologize to the fans, who have been giving me a lot of love and support, because of this incident.

When looking at the situation over the past few days, I looked back on my past actions and truly reflected on myself. Looking back on my past behavior, it was definitely wrong, and I was irresponsibly throwing away the support fans have given me for a long time.

Once again, I would like to say sorry to everyone who feels disappointed in my actions. In order for this to not happen again, I will suspend all planned activities to have time to reflect.

Lastly, I apologize to my members, company staff, various business partners, and broadcast station officials as well for causing harm.

I am truly sorry."



SM Entertainment has also released an official statement announcing the suspension of Lucas' promotions. The label stated:


"Hello, this is SM Entertainment.

We are sorry for causing worry over our artist Lucas' private life issues.

We acknowledge the seriousness of the issue, and we have decided to suspend the release of all contents of WayV Lucas and Hendery's single 'Jalapeno' (the song, MV, etc).

Lucas is deeply reflecting on causing damage and disappointment for his wrongdoings, and the company feels responsible as well for the lack of artist management.

Once again, we deeply apologize to many people, including the fans, for causing worry due to Lucas' private life issue."

the fact that people were defending him and are still trying to make excuses for his actions that he has owned up to is baffling. the trauma that these girls must have gone through is something to take seriously and not just push to the side because your "oppa just made a mistake" or your "oppa is innocent."

stop making excuses for your idols, they aren't perfect and need to own up to their actions like every other human being
