Nude Ailee pictures surface online

Nude photos of the singer Ailee were released online yesterday, and the singer’s agency, YMC Entertainment, immediately said it will take legal action to find the distributor.

The agency explained that the controversial photos were taken before she made her debut in the United States.

After being offered the opportunity to model for a famous underwear label, Ailee was asked to pose nude for a camera test, and she trusted that those photos wouldn’t be released for any other reason, according to her current agency.

However, she never heard back from the officials who offered her the modeling job, so she reported the case to the local police.

The police said it was a scheme and never caught the people who took advantage of women like Ailee in this way.

She shared her story with former boyfriend, now her ex, who currently works for All Kpop, an online outlet for K-pop news. She also sent him copies of the photos.

“What Ailee did was not so mature, but she never had any wrong intentions,” the agency said.

“As the event is a painful memory for her, we hope fans help her never go through bigger pain and continue working hard.”
