EXO’s Lay deletes all Instagram posts amid Tao’s rumored departure from group

EXO’s Lay has deleted all his Instagram posts just hours after controversial articles were released by media reporting that member Tao would possibly be leaving the group. Earlier today, we reported that fellow member Xiumin had also deleted his entire Instagram account, following a post by Tao’s dad outlining the reasons why he would be “bringing Tao back home”. SM Entertainment quickly confirmed the post to be real, and revealed they would work hard to keep Tao in the group.

Later, in an exclusive interview with Sina, Tao’s father told the Chinese media, “Tao has agreed to leave EXO, his treatment is going to be priority and everything else is up to Tao to decide.”

Fans are waiting to hear official word from Tao himself, but with Lay also deleting all his Instagram posts during this tumultuous time, it seems like things are not looking up for EXO.
