A Chinese company has sued Exo's Lay for not paying his airfares even after multiple intimations. According to reports, Lay purchased two airfare tickets through an agency in May 2017. The tickets were priced at 11,050 yuan and 11,815 yuan—making it a total of 22,865 yuan. Even after repeated notice, the idol refused to pay the ticket amour. The company is now reportedly demanding 26,235 yuan for the overall loss created by the Exo member.
However, when All Kpop quipped Lay's Chinese representatives, they seem to have a different answer altogether. In a statement released, the agency clarified that they purchased tickets from an agent named Liu Quan but the Studio staff had already made the payments.
The statement further added, "Liu Quan did not pay the amount to the companies that issued those air tickets. We currently have lost contact with him. So far, we have no notice from the court or the plaintiff. Should we receive any notice from the court, we will pay the subject fees to the plantiff first, followed by taking actions that will hold Liu Quan accountable." The agency is doing a detailed investigation into the matter and will be resolved soon.
Meanwhile, Lay's absence from Exo's recent activities has led to departure rumours. There are speculations that Lay is ready to leave Exo for good. He is currently busy with the promotional activities of his Chinese drama. Exo was originally a Chinese-South Korean band with 12 members. However, soon after their debut, three of its Chinese members (Luhan, Kris, and Tao) left the group with Lay being the only Chinese member remaining.
