This Tuesday, September 19th, the final verdict of the lawsuit that Nayeon, a member of TWICE, received from her mother’s ex-boyfriend was made public, causing great controversy on social networks due to several fans who share mixed opinions.
According to reports, the former partner of the idol’s mother asked for the money he had lent them to be returned, a sum of 600 million KRW (454,000 dollars), before the artist’s debut.
Although the court recognized that the subject had given 500 million KRW ($378,000) to Nayeon’s mother over 12 years, it was not proven that this was a loan since there was insufficient evidence.
The plaintiff said in a previous lawsuit in January that the TWICE member’s mother had promised to return this money when the idol debuted, however this did not happen.
“I had lent them money for living expenses because Nayeon’s mother had asked for it. They promised me that when Nayeon, who was a trainee at the time, debuted, they would pay me back, but they didn’t keep their promise“, said the plaintiff.
In the most recent lawsuit, the judges‘ verdict has ruled the idol victorious, alleging that there is no evidence to confirm that this was a loan, so the idol would not have to pay that money to the ex-boyfriend of her mother. she.
For their part, on social media the idol’s followers comment on the matter, among them many have defended the plaintiff’s position and believe that the idol should return the money, while others support the final verdict.
“I mean, that’s a lot of money. She should pay him back since he once helped them…“, “It’s been a gray area since they were dating. If her mother didn’t promise to pay him back, there’s really no reason to it“, “If Nayeon and her mother used that money for living expenses… I would rather pay himback than have it appear on the news like this“.
