An exclusive report from Market News on June 2 revealed that BLACKPINK‘s former manager had stolen ₩1 billion KRW (~$817,661 USD) from Lisa since debut, and that the money was all wasted on gambling.

The un-named former manager, according to the report, was with BLACKPINK since their debut, and that the foreigner member from Thailand had trusted and relied on him since her rookie years. However, people around the manager have no idea about the said activity.

The former manager had took advantage of this ‘trust’ and has reportedly received money from Lisa in the promise of finding out real estate investments, which all, was reportedly wasted on gambling. It was said that the former manager was still employed at YG Entertainment before this news was released.

Unfortunately, Lisa is a foreign member and is alone in Korea since she was young, making her very vulnerable to these kind of things. It is not easy for her to let the public know, as many things could be tarnished, not just your image, an official said.
