Big Bang's Seungri 'Had Been Pimping for Years'

2019/04/17 | 2548 views | Permalink | Source

Seungri of boy band Big Bang's sideline as an eager pimp for rich friends and investors had allegedly been going on for much longer than initially thought.

Police are now investigating charges that Seungri supplied prostitutes to clients as early as December of 2015. At the time, Japanese investors and other acquaintances were visiting Seoul, and the floppy-fringed teen idol is accused of setting them up with a dozen prostitutes.

Police obtained testimony from some of the women that they had sex with the men, while financial records show Seungri sent money to them.

"The women he invited make their living from providing sex for money", an investigator said. "There is no way of escaping the charges by claiming that the sex was spontaneous and based on mutual attraction".

Another strand of the investigation focuses on a lavish party Seungri, who is notorious for his ostentatious lifestyle, threw in Palawan, the Philippines in 2017. He is accused of flying out a gaggle of Gangnam bar hostesses to pleasure his guests. Earlier this week, police said they will seek an arrest warrant.

Seungri's lawyer declined to comment, explaining "Police are shamelessly leaking information to the media. We are no longer making public comments about anything related to the police investigation".
