The members of Teen Top have deleted all their personal social media accounts as dating rumors continue to spread about one of their singers.

Recently, member Niel has been swept up in dating rumors between him and a non-celebrity. The rumors sparked when Niel was caught liking the girl's Instagram photo. Further digging revealed that Niel and the girl wear the same bracelet and anklet, causing many fans to suggest it is evidence of their relationship.

TOP Media, Teen Top's record label, has denied the rumors. "The rumors of Niel dating are unfounded," a TOP Media official said to Daily News Star Today. "The accessory Niel wore has been worn by the other [Teen Top] members as well."  The rep also stated the company would not be releasing an official statement on the matter.

Since then, all members of Teen Top have deleted their personal social media accounts. Leader C.A.P took to Teen Top's official fan café to address fans on July 1.

"Hello, Angels. This is leader C.A.P," he bagan. "Up to now, it seems like things related to SNS have caused fans a lot of worries. I apologize for that."

"Starting now, Teen Top will be deleting all personal Instagram and Twitter accounts and will be delivering news via the official Teen Top account," he wrote. "In the future, we will use SNS to communicate with our fans and we will work harder to make sure that things that cause fans similar concerns will not happen again."

Per C.A.P's post, Teen Top's fan café and official accounts will now become the main source of information and news regarding the group.

"Since our comeback you have truly been by our sides from morning to morning cheering us on and watching over our stage performances. We are truly thankful," the singer added. "We will do our best to work even harder and to become a Teen Top who presents a better side of themselves to you."

Niel is not the only member to spark dating rumors. Earlier this year member Changjo was also speculated to be in a relationship with Jiyeon of the girl group GLAM, according to TV Daily. Like Niel, rumors of Changjo's relationship were sparked by social media posts.

Teen Top are currently carrying out promotions for their latest song "Ah-Ah" and are included in the lineup for KCON NY 2015.
