Malaysian business man Jho Low, who is a fugitive wanted in Malaysia, Singapore, and America in connection with the 1MDB scandal, has denied Malaysian reports that he was the recipient of any reported prostitution services provided by YG.
On May 27, “Straight” reported that Yang Hyun Suk and several high-ranking figures from YG Entertainment had been involved in soliciting prostitutes for two Southeast Asian investors in July 2014. Several Malaysian news outlets reported that Jho Low was one of the investors in question, and Jho Low’s spokesperson denied the claims through the businessman’s U.S. legal representatives. The spokesperson stated that Jho Low is friends with PSY, who was previously under YG Entertainment, and that he met Yang Hyun Suk through the singer. The spokesperson added, “He was never involved in, nor aware of, any conduct of the kind alleged in the MBC ‘Straight’ report.”
Now PSY has been linked to this mess through Jho Low, an association in and of itself that seems to be unsavory even if there’s no tangible connection to wrongdoing at this time.
As far as Jho Low’s denial goes, you’ll have to excuse me if I take the word of a wanted man with a mountain of salt, but it’s just another example of how wide-reaching this mess seems to be while also giving off the impression that nothing will come of it in the end perhaps for the same reason.
