Lee A-reum, a former member of K-pop girl group T-ara, is currently receiving medical treatment after pan apparent suicide attempt, local media outlets reported Wednesday.

The 29-year-old was reportedly found earlier today with what appeared to be a will, according to her representatives, although its content has not been made public.

Lee, who was a member of T-ara for a year starting July 2012, recently made headlines by claiming Monday that she had been a victim of domestic abuse by her estranged husband. She got married in 2019 and had two kids, but is currently going through a divorce.

She claimed that her husband assaulted her in November 2021, revealing photos of her face and torn clothing.

Lee in December revealed that she planned to remarry, posting a photo of her soon-to-be groom on her Instagram page.
