Is EXO Sehun's girlfriend pregnant? SM Entertainment refutes rumors
The sensational K-pop rapper-singer-songwriter Sehun of the South Korean-Chinese boy group EXO has recently become the victim of rumors. His non-celebrity girlfriend was speculated to have become pregnant. As the rumors spread on social media, SM Entertainment, which formed the boy band in 2011, took charge of the matter and released a statement clearing the air and strongly refuting the circulating rumors.
But first, how did the rumors start?
It all started when a netizen created a post on an online forum titled—"Sehun's girlfriend is pregnant before marriage," which caught the attention of fans online. After this bold statement, netizens flooded social media with speculations and rumors on whether the rapper's girlfriend was pregnant or not. Apparently, the claim was supported by several photos posted by the alleged girlfriend, although with no confirmation.
Netizens claimed they recognized Sehun with his girlfriend
Various online communities shared some pictures that were posted by the alleged girlfriend. In the photo, a man, believed to be Sehun, was sitting, flaunting his signature square shoulders. The photo was reportedly posted on SNS (Social Networking Site) by a non-celebrity woman, who fans allegedly know as Sehun's girlfriend. The woman also uploaded a KakaoTalk profile background that suggests she may be pregnant.
'We will respond with strong legal action…'
In order to curb fake news, SME released a statement strongly refuting the circulating rumors and stated, "The recent rumors involving Sehun which have been circulating online are completely groundless, false claims and spreading maliciously written content that is different from the truth is a criminal act." They further mentioned that while the post has now been deleted, they will respond with legal action.
