[Blind Gossip] Members of this band are sitting down with their team today to sort through the events of the past few days and to discuss damage control going forward.
Here is what they know and what they will be discussing in today’s meeting.
Management already knows that the boys use dr*gs so they were more annoyed by the leak than surprised by the drug use and drug talk. Not surprisingly, the entire band is embarrassed about the incident. However, it is interesting to note that the band member who is taking this all the hardest is not even one of the boys in the video.
The leak came from one of the boy’s mobile devices (specifically, the one who was shooting the video). None of the boys was responsible for the leak. They are not trying to force a more grown-up image on their fans, nor force management to let them change their image, nor sabotage the band’s success. They do not know yet how the video was taken from the device, or by whom. They believe the data was stolen. The security team is worried about losing their jobs. One of the boys is very upset about the possibility of losing his place on another team.
The video that was published was edited. It is actually much longer and contains other damning information about dr*g use. They are all worried that the rest of it will leak. They are even more worried about two other things on the phone that would be very damaging if leaked.
The first is proof of extensive dr*g and alcohol use and/or abuse by all of the members of the band.
The second is proof of an intimate relationship between two of the boys. That is why the other band member is so upset about this. He is one of the boys in the relationship. Yes, it was all on that same phone. No, they do not know who has it now, what they have, or what they are going to do with it.
