Sulli’s Brother has come forward with more accusations against their father after his recent rant on social media.
On January 19, Sulli’s Brother took to his Instagram account to upload several posts of kakaotalk screenshots; he claims the kakaotalk screenshots come from their father. According to Sulli’s Brother, the father has been attempting to gain access to Sulli’s wealth by falsely claiming that their relationship was great.
In one post, Sulli’s brother says the father called him talking about suing him for defamation, he says his father talked badly about their mother adding,
“I don’t know a lot about you but you also don’t know anything about me. You’re just a father who wants his daughter’s inheritance money but wants to avoid the inheritance tax.”
In one of the screenshots, the father sent an image taken at the graveyard followed by a statement claiming that he had gone to visit Jinri twice, he says,
“This is proof I went to to Milyang, where Jinri is. I went twice. For the witnesses of the truth, ask Church (anonymous)’s Brother (anonymous) couple and Brother (anonymous).”
The brother says the father didn’t even attend their burial ceremony and that photo he showed was actually someone else’s not that of Sulli,
“This is not even funny, how can you even try to post someone else’s photos. Stop lying.
Oh, I think it is distortion and fabrication you’re talking about.
Now that you’ve explained yourself, should I give you applause? The picture above, of course, isn’t even credible.
Aren’t you embarrassed as a member of the church?”
The brother goes on to claim that the father wants to get a hold of her inheritance but without paying inheritance tax, he told his father that he won’t sell the house Sulli worked her whole life for.
Sulli’s brother says the inheritance tax payment is coming up in March, he told his father “get a hold of yourself; we’re not selling that house.”
