A blind item rumor has gone rampant online, pointing towards and accusing vocalist and Unpretty Rapstar star Jessi of assaulting her manager.
The blind item rumor says that a female rapper with a title of a “Ssen Unni (tough sister)” and who gained popularity through an audition program had assaulted her manager.
Jessi rose into popularity earlier this year after starring as one of the contestants on the Mnet spin-off Unpretty Rapstar and became known for her tough image. In September 2015, she also released a solo single titled “SSEN UNNI.” So it would seem as if the blind item rumor is pointing towards the Lucky J singer.
However, YMC Entertainment has refuted the rumor, commenting that they were completely unfounded. “An article that came out suggested it was Jessi. But this isn’t true. The report reveals no facts that it was Jessi who assault the manager. We are not sure why this kind of article was published. From the article, there’s no way to know who the rapper is. But, it’s absolutely not Jessi.”
Netizens also defended Jessi against the rumors, adding that despite her tough public image, she had always shown a sweet side towards her fans and others as seen through her various variety show appearances. You can read some of their comments below.
