Kim Lim is a Singaporean socialite and the daughter of Peter Lim who owns the Spanish football team Valencia CF. Her name was specifically mentioned by Seungri in a recent interview where he claimed that he wasn’t hiring prostitutes but rather women to keep his friend Kim Lim company during her visit to Korea.
Kim Lim made a response on her Instagram story, essentially refuting everything Seungri said.
My name has been embroiled in the K-Pop scandal that is currently unfolding in South Korea.
Some time before the news broke, I received a phone call from Seungri. It turns out there is a leaked conversation of him allegedly soliciting prostitutes for his investors. He asked me a few weird questions and hung up. I don’t know why he called me and how I am involved with this saga at all. Needless to say, after the call I was left completely confused.
When this news broke out, Seungri said the chat is entirely fabricated and it’s fake news. However the police say it isn’t.
Today, a media statement was released by Seungri’s lawyer telling his side of the story. The article suggested that he arranged for me to party together with other girls, who he claims are not prostitutes.
To clarify, on the 9th of December 2015, I was in Korea with my friends from Singapore. We went to Club Arena for a night out, and Seungri arranged for a VIP table for our group. We partied by ourselves and left after.
In NO WAY were there other patrons or staff who accompanied our group. I certainly never asked for any “girls” to party with me. This can be vouched for by the 4 people who were part of our group that night.
I am embroiled in this matter simply because I HAPPENED TO BE THERE THAT NIGHT. I was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Just to be clear I had no inkling/idea of the alleged criminal activities going on in Burning Sun/Seungri’s businesses before this saga broke out. I’m not involved in any way whatsoever. Any media outlets which persist in reporting so will be hearing from my legal counsel.
