Korean-American female hip-hop artist Jessi is in news for all the wrong reasons. The 27-year-old artist was reportedly involved in a physical altercation in Seoul. Apgujeoung police said the physical assault occurred during a music video shoot at a nightclub in Gangnam District.
The police was quoted as saying to Soompi: "There were two groups involved, Jessi's team and alleged male victim A's team, and they got into a verbal dispute over the fact that [one group didn't receive the greeting of the other group]. Things escalated into a physical altercation."
"At the scene, A testified that he was physically assaulted by Jessi, but Jessi denied the allegation," the police added. "The testimonies were conflicting, but both people didn't want to be penalized. At the end of their conversation, they made up with each other, and everything was resolved at the scene."
Jessi's agency also issued a statement following the incident. YMC Entertainment stated: "While [at the club] to make a cameo in Duble K's music video, Jessi met A for the first time in a while. While talking, there was a miscommunication, and they got into a verbal dispute. There was absolutely no physical assault."
"During the verbal dispute, one of A's group reported [the incident], but even before the police arrived, Jessi and A had already resolved [the misunderstanding]. The police arrived, but the two had already made up, so they left. It was just a happening," the source added.
