Model and actress Clara Lee has claimed that the CEO of her former agency Polaris Entertainment Lee Kyu Tae made her feel uncomfortable due to his lavish gifts.
Despite the criticisms Clara has received regarding her controversies with the CEO of Polaris Entertainment, she has now claimed that the CEO has given her luxurious gifts of purses and five-star hotel meals.
It has been reported by media outlet Channel A News that Clara was called for an investigation to the Seoul Prosecutor’s Office regarding the lawsuits concerning the CEO and Clara herself with the contract nullification issue, blackmailing issue as well as the sexual harassment charges.
During the investigation, Clara has claimed that the CEO was treating her as a woman not as a family member or an artist under his agency. She has also revealed that she was uncomfortable with CEO Lee giving her luxurious gifts such as five-star hotel meals and designer purses.
CEO Lee’s representative responded to Clara’s claims and said that, “Clara is trying to lie her way out of the one billion Korean Won that she is supposed to pay for breaching her contract with the agency. Regarding the Hermes purse, the other Polaris artists were able to receive one as well.”
Previously, Polaris Entertainment had filed a lawsuit against her for running individual activities under Koreana Clara, a new agency founded by Clara’s father. She has then countersued the agency for invalidation of contract and sexual harassment charges against the CEO of the agency.
