SM Entertainment‘s new group, aespa, just debuted with a bang, but it wasn’t long before one of the members, Giselle was attacked by a netizen with accusations regarding her “dirty past.”
One netizen posted, “The suspicious posts that were uploaded are starting to make more and more sense as aespa becomes revealed.”
And the post that many are referring to made claims that Giselle was a thug who did things that underage girls shouldn’t prior to debut.
She was famous for being a thug who basically touched everything that had to do with alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs. Her personal life was messy, too.
The netizen also claimed that Giselle suddenly changed her phone number and deleted her Instagram account as soon as she went to Korea and announced to be an SM trainee.
She suddenly went to Korea, changed her phone, erased her Instagram, and then it was revealed that she was an SM trainee.
According to the netizen, many people still have photos from her old Instagram account, and the friends she used to hang out with are following aespa’s account.
There are lots of kids who have photos from the Instagram account she deleted. The kids who drank and did drugs with her are following aespa’s Instagram.
Prior to aespa’s debut, Giselle gained attention for her multiple school photos, and SM Entertainment stated that they will take strong legal action against those who spread false and malicious rumors about the idols.
But months later, a childhood friend of aespa’s Giselle recently debunked the rumors by stressing that as someone who grew up with Giselle, she can confidently say that Giselle is one of the nicest people and that while she simply lost touch with her friends in Japan due to her busy schedule, some did not take it well.
She claimed that the past photos were stolen by the person who spread the false rumors and that there is no valid evidence to support their accusations.
