OMEGA X agrees to terminate contract with agency, abuse scandal concluded
Boy group OMEGA X, who were assaulted and abused by their former agency, finally terminated their exclusive contract.
On May 8th, OMEGA X published an official announcement regarding the agreement to terminate their contract with their former agency. In particular, the statement reads:
“Hello, this is OMEGA X.
After careful and lengthy discussions, OMEGA X has mutually agreed to terminate the exclusive contract with our former agency, Spire Entertainment, after careful and lengthy discussions.
As a result, we have decided to end all disputes with our former agency Spire Entertainment, and to strive for the development of K-pop from our respective positions.
We sincerely thank the many people who have been worried and trusted OMEGA X. In the future, OMEGA X plans to continue its activities with the manager who has been with us since before our debut until now.
We will come back with better music and a more developed image.”
Previously, the conflict between OMEGA X and their former agency surfaced when a video of the group’s members being verbally and physically abused by Spire Entertainment’s CEO in LA last October was released.
At that time, the agency explained that such actions occurred when “the emotions became heated”, and that all misunderstandings have been solved. However, the members held a press conference refuting such claims and revealed instances of sexual harassment, assault, threats, and verbal abuse.
OMEGA X then filed a lawsuit for an injunction suspending the validity of their exclusive contract with Spire Entertainment, and won the case earlier this year.
Meanwhile, OMEGA X debuted in June 2021 and consists of members who appeared in audition programs such as JTBC’s “Mix Nine”, Mnet’s “Produce 101” Season 2, KBS2’s “The Unit”, drawing attention as a team.
They released albums such as “VAMOS”, “LOVE ME LIKE”, “Story Written in Music”, and held a world tour in 2022.
