On April 11, Riccardo Tisci, the former chief creative officer of Burberry, shared photos from a visit to what appears to be the well-known, luxurious mansion owned by fashion designer and entrepreneur Eva Chow.

In the photo, netizens noticed BLACKPINK’s Rosé and actor Kang Dong Won amongst the guests.

When the photo was shared online, some netizens claimed that they saw evidence of drugs on the table, including a white powder.

After the photos were posted and rumors of drug use were released, the post was immediately taken down by Riccardo.

Netizens found proof that the allegations were false, and one BLACKPINK account shared that they’d sent an email to YG Entertainment demanding legal action for the defamation.

On April 13, YG Entertainment responded to the allegations with an official statement explaining that the rumors that had been spreading on social media were false. In the statement, the company revealed its stance on the rumors and the response.

We are pursuing legal action against those that violate our artists’ rights and privacy. We are currently monitoring and watching those who created and are spreading rumors. We will not settle and will respond strongly.

— YG Entertainment

BLACKPINK are set to perform at Coachella on April 15, and swift action from YG Entertainment was taken to protect Rosé from the malicious comments.
