WANT Emma Embroiled in Allegations of Violating Her Exclusive Contract
Amid the news of being eliminated from Street Woman Fighter, Emma, a dancer, and member of WANT Crew was sued by her agency for violating a contract.
Emma's agency, Dread Alliance, said on October 5, "We signed an exclusive contract with Emma as a trainee, and she was preparing to debut as a member of a girl group in January 2022 in collaboration with our and cooperative entertainment through a training period, and she left after unilateral notification."
They added, "We have also confirmed violations of contracts in the current 'Street Woman Fighter' such as bilateral contracts, unarranged backup dancer activities, other agency activities, and dignity as idol debut groups."
The Dread Alliance said, "Emma has been causing frequent problems unlike the group members, but she violated various provisions of the exclusive contract and has not responded to requests for correction. Emma has affected the project's progress and the members preparing to debut in the same group."
The company explained that Emma caused so much trouble that affected not only the agency but as well as her supposed-to-be co-members in an upcoming girl group. Due to this, Dread Alliance proceeded to file a lawsuit against the professional dancer.
WANT Emma is yet to respond against these claims.
