Boy group Omega X has filed a lawsuit against A, the CEO of their former agency, Spire Entertainment.
On the 28th, Omega X’s current agency, IPQ, stated, “We plan to file a lawsuit against A for ‘violating the law on sexual violence punishment against members and forced sexual assault.’ We also plan to file a lawsuit for the removal of the YouTuber’s video, which raised suspicions of tampering, as well as for obstruction of business and spreading false information.”
Furthermore, IPQ stated that their lawyer, Noh Jong-eon, will hold a press conference during this week to disclose the details of the damages, to which they responded, “We are carefully discussing it.”
Previously, Omega X claimed that they had been verbally and physically abused by A last year and exposed the unfair treatment by their agency at that time. They filed a lawsuit to suspend the effectiveness of their exclusive contract. In November of the same year, Omega X held a press conference claiming that they had continuously suffered from verbal and physical abuse and were forced to attend unwanted drinking gatherings.
Subsequently, Omega X won their case for suspending the effectiveness of their exclusive contract with the agency in January and in May, they announced, “After careful and lengthy discussions, Omega X has mutually and amicably agreed to terminate the exclusive contract with Spire. We have resolved all disputes with Spire. In the future, Omega X plans to continue their activities with the manager whom they have been with since before their debut until now.”
Omega X signed an exclusive contract with IPQ, a comprehensive IP production group, last month and is currently active.
