The star wrote, according to Allkpop: "I have been staying quiet despite many turmoils because first of all, I thought emotional words could undermine the clarity of my thoughts.

"I was afraid it would only leave a bigger and deeper wound. Secondly, I was afraid communication between us could be easily distorted by the outsiders and result in even more rumors and gossip. So please understand why I have not released any statement despite continued requests from some of you."
