Former SS501 singer denies rumors
“It is true that the two met in September, but they agreed to break up late last year,” Keyeast Entertainment, Kim’s agency, said in a statement released Monday.
Just a day earlier, a monthly magazine reported that the singer recently reconciled with his former girlfriend and that they would soon marry because she was 10-weeks pregnant.
Kim’s ex, surnamed Choi, filed a lawsuit against him for assault in August, when they were seeing each other. Kim was summarily indicted for harming his girlfriend and paid a 5 million won ($4,500) fine.
Kim’s agency also mentioned about news reports that Kim would soon become a father. “Choi contacted Kim January and notified him of her pregnancy but she’s been refusing to visit a doctor’s clinic to confirm it.
“We’ve been asking Choi to give us [information to verify] but we haven’t heard from her yet.”
The agency added that if Choi was pregnant, the singer-actor would take responsibility.
Kim, a former member of the boy band SS501, recently released a new album in Japan and has been promoting it there.
