Allkpop has responded to YMC Entertainment's statement blaming the site for the Ailee nude photo leak, denying responsibility for the surfacing of the photos.
According to the site, Ailee's ex-boyfriend Daniel Lee, the Vice President of Content for 6Theory Media, was not the one who leaked the nude photos. Instead, an individual from Canada contacted them on June 28, 2013 claiming to have nude photos of Ailee and was willing to sell them to Allkpop. The individual is said to have been a middleman between the original owner of the photos and the website.
Allkpop stated that they informed YMC Entertainment about the attempt sale of Ailee's photos, but the company brushed them off, believing it to be made up.
While Allkpop had access to the nude photos, they decided not to publish them unless the photos were posted elsewhere first. When they received a tip that the nude photos had surface, they made the decision to break the story.
Allkpop's denial of being responsible for the leak runs counter to YMC Entertainment and Ailee's version of the story. According to them, Ailee's ex-boyfriend is the one responsible for the leak. Legal action will be taken against the ex-boyfriend for the alleged leaking of the photos.
Despite their denial, backlash against Allkpop has grown for ruining the singer's image.
