Former 2NE1 member CL or Lee Chae Rin in real life, has parted ways with her agency YG Entertainment.
According to a statement from YG Entertainment issued on November 8, “Respecting each other’s opinions, we came to an agreement with CL to end her exclusive contract. We express deep gratitude to her fans who have shown for CL, who shined with her activities as an artist for YG.”
The agency also asked CL’s fans to support the K-pop singer’s future activities. They further added: “YG will cheer her on with unchanging trust and affection.”
CL debuted with 2NE1 in 2009 as the group’s leader and rapper. Together with former 2NE1 members Sandara Park, Park Bom, and Minzy, the group came out with hits like “I Don’t Care,” and “Fire.” The group disbanded in 2016. As a solo artist, CL became the first solo K-pop female artist to chart in the Billboard Hot 100 in October 2016.
